A piano bench is also known by many other names: a piano stool, piano chair, piano seat, piano throne, etc. The point is that you can find great piano benches for sale online from trusted brands and only a few companies are really known for their stools, including Yamaha, Jansen, Casio, Kawai, Baldwin and Roland.

Styles include duet piano benches, leather models, grand piano models, padded seats, double models, oak, swivel, unfinished wood, mahogany, ergonomic models for improved back support, cps, hydraulic and portable styles.
If you have a grand piano, or a baby grand, these have a lower profile, so the bench will not be as high as if you have an upright piano, so be sure that you are buying the correct type to suit your purpose and your instrument. One popular style of bench is the Artist Bench or a Maestro which have a tufted or quilted upholstery top that has a luxurious look and matches well a grand style piano.
You might be surprised at the choice available for piano benches, ranging from basic and practical to quite ornamental in their design, and what could only be described as a beautiful piece of furniture. A bench for a keyboard is a wider seat, than a piano stool.
These benches can often accommodate two players. The type of seat you’re likely to choose will of course depend on many things, and perhaps the most important influence will be the type of piano you have, along with the reason you have it.
Certainly, take a look around at the range of piano benches before making your final choice, and while prices do vary, as with most things you end up getting what you pay for, so your purpose and life expectancy of the product will also influence your decision.
