Leigh Rich. Benches. January 12th , 2018.
The most popular, elegant and well known pianos in the world are made by Steinway & Sons, who have a tradition of making their top-of-the-line instruments for over 150 years. Steinway however, is solely a piano bench manufacturer, and do not make their own piano benches to go along with their pianos. They in fact contract out to Jansen & Son exclusively to make benches for their products. Thus, if you are looking for a Steinway piano bench, you are in fact looking for a Jansen piano bench. A brief history about Jansen: they are an American piano bench manufacturer in Wisconsin, who have been in business for over 50 years. They are known across the globe for making the highest quality benches available, using superior maple hardwood (from the East Coast of the United States or Canada), and thick, furniture quality vinyl. Jansen is best known for their artist benches, which features their heavy-duty, silent "micro-adjustable" raising mechanism (which is the best adjustable mechanism on the market).
If you plan to purchase a bench, then there are some important things to keep in mind. A teak bench must be properly cared for, especially if it spends time out in the elements. Here are some important tips to keep in mind when caring for a teak bench. Teak Protector If you do not want the lovely brown color of the bench to fade to the light grey color, then there are some products which are made to protect the original color of the teak. Kingsley-Bate makes a wonderful product that will help the bench keep its original teak color for much longer than it would otherwise. A teak protector will need to be reapplied about once per year in order for the bench to retain its same color year after year. You might be able to get away with doing it a little less often if the bench is kept indoors all of the time.
Also take a look at how the bench is put together. Higher quality benches will have joints that are welded together rather than screwed or bolted. These welds will also be located in very inconspicuous places if the bench is well made. For wood benches, look for one that comes in very few pieces. Try to get a feel for the joints although judging joints on a wood piece is a bit more difficult because it can be hard to see the quality construction. Try sitting on the bench and moving around a little bit. If the bench does not wiggle or creak, then there is a good chance that it is of high quality. For upholstered bench tops, look at how the cushion is attached to the bench. A cushion that is loose or looks like it is about to come loose will not do. The best choice is a cushion that is attached to the top of the bench and cannot be removed. Cushions that are attached with ties are usually not a good choice for a vanity bench. Also remember to look for cushions made of a material that is easy to wipe off and clean.
o Look at the price - These are just like every other item in that you will be getting what you paid for. Many benches that are less expensive will not last as long. It also depends on what type of wood you choose for a wooden garden bench. Pine is less expensive, and will not last as long, and teak will last a long time but is one of the more expensive woods. A good tip, no matter what type of benches you choose, is to weatherproof your bench to make sure that they will last longer. o If you cannot find any garden benches you like around, get advice from people that visit your home often and visit the home of the people you know for more ideas. You can also have custom made ones to get exactly what you want but it can be more expensive to do. Often the best place to shop for benches of any kind is online. You can browse the largest selection of benches from the comfort of your own home.
The first is a stationary grand piano bench (Duet Bench) is 35 inches wide and 19 inches high. With the duet bench the width is proportioned to the size of the piano and the bench will easily seat two people. The traditional standard upright bench is 30 inches wide by 19 inches high and is a fine piece of furniture to use with all upright pianos. For smaller pianos such as spinets, I would consider a 25-inch-wide piano/keyboard bench to be just the right size. I will often recommend an adjustable bench for families (and teachers) with multiple players and pianists concerned with posture might select an adjustable or a high level Artists bench.
