All of this being said, given these economic times, buying a Jansen artist bench can still be a significant financial commitment for a lot of people. And while Jansen piano benches are sold online, for those who have never seen one of their benches in person, its not uncommon for a person to want to examine one up-close before buying something over the internet. The best way of doing this would be contact your local Steinway dealer, and ask if they have any Jansen artist benches in their storeroom next to their pianos. That way, you can do to your dealer, sit on the bench yourself, and see the actual quality of the bench.
The one most often seen is probably the flat weight bench. As the name suggests, the flat bench is simply a long, narrow bench. This type of bench is appropriate for exercises such as the bench press and dumbbell press. The type of bench helpful for exercises such as the shoulder press is the vertical bench. It helps the person exercising keep the correct position by providing enough back support. Composed of two main pieces it resembles a chair. The best bench for people who are seeking to increase the development of the lower chest muscles is the decline bench. This is probably the least well-known kind but is ideal in some situations. As the name strongly suggests the decline bench is a weight bench that is angled slightly downwards so that the lower half of your body is slightly above the upper part.
Deluxe park and garden benches: Deluxe park and garden benches offer all the benefits of the standard benches, but add a graceful contour. Therefore your garden bench will be able to fit all body styles comfortably. The more comfortable the make, the easier it is for you to relax and enjoy your garden. Elite park and garden benches: These garden benches have a cultivated architectural form. They hold their high quality condition in bad weather, and are virtually maintenance free. They are made with a sustainable recycled plastic construction. They will add a touch of personal taste and beauty to your garden. And they are long lasting as well.
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.
Taking this into account, if you are looking for a piano bench to go with your Steinway piano, the two most common options are either a wood top bench, or the above mentioned artist bench (the other option would be an upholstered top bench, which while more comfortable, does not highlight the elegance of the Steinway piano as much as a finished wood top bench does, and thus is less popular). Of the two choices, the most popular is the Jansen artist bench, for both its design and usability. If youve seen a Steinway piano in a concert hall, the adjustable artist bench with it is a Jansen (and its quality is such that it is perfect for performance halls, teaching studios, and home use).
