Very Well Padded for comfort

X-Style Height Adjustment
There are a wide variety of reasons why keyboard players should sit at their instruments as ergonomically as possible. The KDT5505 has 3 different height adjustment options to help with this.
Due to its ‘x-style’ folding mechanism and light weight, the KDT5505 collapses to be one of the most portable keyboard benches out there. It’s also under $100, which makes it a complete stand out in its price range
EXPERT ADVICE: Comfort Is Worth It
Ergonomists and piano teachers alike will both tell you the same thing: sitting properly at your instrument is one of the most important first steps when learning the piano. Poor posture, or an uncomfortable seat that causes you to subconsciously compensate will create numerous muscle aches and misalignments as you’re trying to learn your instrument.
The internet is full of inexpensive benches that use extremely poor quality vinyl, painted bases, cheap hardware, and very often don’t last beyond their first year of use. A high quality bench usually starts around $200, with most ranging between $250 – 500. If you’re considering a bench that seems too good to be true, there’s a very good chance it is.
Be comfortable, and buy right the first time.
