While it's pretty common in rock music to see keyboardists playing in a standing position, the traditional (and some would say most comfortable) way to play is sitting. This is especially the case for pianists, unless you're Jerry Lee Lewis. Having a keyboard bench that is comfortable and of the proper height goes a long way toward encouraging correct posture and improving your playing. If you've been getting by using a kitchen chair or a random stool with a phonebook on it, it's time to get serious with a proper keyboard bench.
A great way to give yourself a comfortable bench without taking up a lot of real estate is with one of our foldable models. The basic versions feature a comfortable 2 inch padded seat with multi-position height adjustments and fold-away legs for easy storage and transport. From there, we have versions with added features such as thicker seat cushioning and increased maximum weight capacity and height settings up to 25 inches. These benches are great for touring because they're comfortable and built to last with welded steel tubing and heavy duty position locks yet they fold neatly for storage and transport. We even offer bundles with a matching keyboard stand.
We also carry a wide selection of traditional piano benches. Many of our options are built of sturdy, solid wood construction and come in a variety of good-looking stain colors as well as traditional black. If you want to keep it simple, we have a great selection of no-frills standard-sized benches to choose from. We also offer great premium features such as storage compartments under the seat with a locking arm so that the seat top doesn't fall down on your fingers while you're retrieving your sheet music. Another excellent option is our duet sized benches, perfect for lessons. The instructor and student can sit together comfortably instead of trying to squeeze an extra chair in front of the piano. We've even got wood keyboard benches that feature height adjustment!
Whether you're needing a comfortable road-worthy keyboard bench that quickly folds and stows, or prefer a more traditional piano bench style, we offer a great selection for you to choose from. With a variety of adjustment and cushion options, you'll be comfortable and able to focus on your playing. And just in case you need a bit more padding, we even have extra bench pads for adding an extra layer of foam. These pads look good and attach to your keyboard bench with strings tucked underneath.
