Well-padded for hours of comfort
Comfort is at the top of most pianists’ list of what’s most important in a piano bench, considering the amount of time we spend sitting behind our instruments. The 301C bench is very well padded and keeps players comfortable through long playing sessions
High-Quality Adjustment Mechanism
Height adjustable benches come in handy in various situations, and in some households, the piano bench height gets adjusted more than once a day. The 301C bench offers a height adjustment mechanism that’s made of high-quality metal and is both durable and reliable
Book Storage Compartment
If your piano is in a space in your home where clutter isn’t encouraged (which many are), then a book storage compartment will be a very welcomed feature in your piano bench. Easily store your most-used piano books under the seat cushion of your 301C bench
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.
