    Excellent Bench!

    Well made, comfortable cushion. Very high-quality at a reasonable price. Hard to beat. If you are looking for a keyboard bench look no further!

    Gator Piano bench

    This bench gave my granddaughter the ability and freedom to easily adjust her sitting position to play her new keyboard in comfort. And the adjustable legs are perfect. Would recommend this to anyone.

    It's well made and comfortable.

    New Gator Bench--Great!!

    After a few years dragging around a rather heavy space-consuming bench to gigs with my virtual theatre organ, the new Gator bench is working out perfectly! When folded, it uses very little room and is easy to load-in and load-out. I use the bench at the full height which is perfect for reaching the foot pedals and swell pedal on the virtual organ. PLUS it arrived the day after ordering! Thanks, Sweetwater!

    This was the second bench I ordered online. The first from another company. This product was exactly what it said it would be. Perfect height, easy to use, and comfortable. The price was excellent as well. Glad I didn't have to look any further.

    About as good as it gets!

    Not a single instruction in the box made me a little nervous but it's a snap to put together and adjust. The bench is well padded and nice and wide . Incredible quality at a great price - what more could you want?

    I got this for playeing guitar on. My resonator guitars are heavy on the one side and need support. This bench is the perfect height for playing guitars on and long enough to support the body. I love it.

    Great bench!!!

    very well made for the price and comfortable, very satisfied.

    Good price for a Great Bench

    Bought Gator products in the past, so reviews didn't sway me. Never been disappointed up to and including now! Well made and good looking too. Like many other reviews have said, "It does rock slightly when not in use!" So, if you live in a wind tunnel or on an earthquake fault and see it rock slightly, you have been warned. Other than that buy it you won't be disappointed!

    A Good Price

    When a couple hours ago I submitted my first review, I returned to the bench to figure out if there was a way to lower its height and I had missed it. As it often happens, my initial assessment was not entirely accurate. I withheld a star because I had not noticed there are two different ways to lower the seating height. I had only worked with the more obvious settings. Upon my return, I analyzed the crossed legs and noticed there are three holes and by manipulating the center screw, the seat is raised or lowered further. It's why now I return to give the full five stars rating to this moderately priced bench.

    keyboard seat

    Really excellent, sturdy keyboard bench. I mistakenly ordered 2 of them, and when I saw the 1st one, I was so impressed that I deceided to keep both!

    I really like this gator bench, I also have and onstage version, but for me, I truthfuly prefer the gator version. I keep the gator at my place where our band rehearsal takes place,and the other I use when I do a church and choir retreat. I can't say anything really negative about either one of them, now the thing I do like about the gator bench is, that there is aknob to tighten the bench sstand on the gator stand whereas on the Onstage one, you have to use a wrench to accomplish this, which is really no big deal at all, except if you're performing, and for some reason your bench starts to feel a bit loose, if you haven't a wrench, well? baby you be out of luck. :) Other than that, they're both good benches however, if you're making a decision which one to purchase, honestly? go for the Gator, really I think you'll be 100% happy that you did.
    Thanks for reading, and thanks again Sweetwater for your superb service, and to my sales engineer, Mr. Joe Copenhaver. I'm really looking to buying my Hammond XK5 from Joe in the next couple months after my band comes back off our tour.

    Very Adjustable Bench

    I've used On Stage Stands benches before and thought I'd try this one from Gator Frameworks. It is similarly adjusted under the seat but has 3 additional adjustments in the middle where the legs cross giving you the ability to raise or lower the bench more than others. Very comfortable padding too.

    Gator keyboard bench

    This bench rocks in every way - fit, looks and portability compliment by Yamaha P115 - Gator products are solid. Once again the Sweetwater crew took excellent care no matter the volume sale...thanks again!

  • from NJ April 15, 2015

    Solid, comfortable, folds easily

    Having reached a "certain age" when it's too painful to stand while playing keys for a 4-hour gig, I needed a bench/stool that was stable, high enough to be comfortable, didn't take up much room in my car... and was inexpensive. This bench meets all of my criteria, and then some.

    Gator Keyboard bench

    Excellent build and quality. Should have purchased this a long time ago. Rock steady and easy to adjust. Thanks Dennis for suggesting this

  • from Brockpor January 3, 2017Music Background:

    Great, comfortable and adjustable bench! Adjusts easily for kids and adults. I'm 6'7" and my son is 5'5 and we can both make it work without too much effort.

    It seems to be very durable. I've dropped a star because it does tip forward a little bit without a whole lot of effort. I am trying to get my son to not "rock" on it and will be curious to see how it holds up to his abuse... I do not anticipate a problem, I just wish it was more stable to prevent the tipping.

    Sweetwater service was terrific, as expected!

    Gator Bench

    This well padded but not too soft keyboard bench hits the sweet spot for me. It is a welcome improvement over the aging and butt-hurting bench I had kept in service for too many years. Very nice.

    Well made

    Well made, comfortable. No surprises. I wish there was a way to latch the legs after folding for transporting. But overall I'm very happy with it.

  • from July 14, 2014

    works well

    Easy to set up. Good padding.

  • from January 12, 2014

    great seat is comfortable and best it is adjustable

    this is a great seat It is comfortable and best it is adjustable

    A Good Price

    The bench is sturdy, but at it's lowest position, it's still a few inches higher than desired by some. It would be even better rated if the legs could be shortened or if the assembly allowed adjustment to a lower position for taller players.

  • from Buford, GA February 20, 2017

    Gator Frameworks Bench

    I would give this bench a 5, but it does not let down as far as needed. Another person has stated the same thing. It is uncomfortable after a while due to being too high, and due to the way I have to sit on it. It would be very comfortable if it let down to a correct height. Wish the company would change this one factor (and send upgraded parts to those of us who have already purchased one)!
