The Roland RPB-D300 is Well Cushioned for Hours of Comfortable Use
We spend hours at a time on a piano bench, and it needs to feel supportive and comfortable, without losing its cushion or structure – just like an airline seat or a great couch. Roland uses high-quality foam to make the traditional-style seat cushions on the RPB-D300s.
High-Quality Adjustment Mechanism
For households with multiple players, changing the height of your bench may be a daily occurrence. Fluid motion that doesn’t require oiling or difficult movement is important, but it’s also rare to find in a non-concert-grade bench. The Roland RPB-D300BK piano bench uses much higher quality steel than a typical piano bench, with better tolerances to ensure trouble-free operation for years.
Duet Sized Bench to Seat Two Players
Duet-sized benches are built to seat two players instead of one, and come in handy in many situations; especially teaching. Most solo players would also prefer a duet bench to a single one if given the choice, and some folks just really like the way they look. The RPB-D300 is the duet version of Roland’s RPB-300
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.
