The Piano Dad’s Review
There are many low-cost piano benches on the market today and it can be hard to be sure which ones are worth the money.
This particular bench is most definitely at the budget end of the market but it looks and feels like a much higher-priced product.
Classy and Understated
This long bench is almost 30 inches wide and can accommodate users up to 440lbs.
The PU leather cushion looks much nicer than some other imitation leather seats.
I like the Bonnlo markings on the wood. I think they add a touch of class to the seat too.
Easy to Assemble
The bench arrives in pieces and you will need to attach the legs to the seat.
This is a simple job which takes just a couple of minutes. They even include the wrench you need to do this.
If anything is missing, or there are any faults with the bench, then the manufacturer promises to fix them for you.
I cannot comment on how good the customer service is since I had no problems with the model I tried.
The one thing that lets the bench down is that the upper is synthetic as is the foam inside of it.
When you take the bench out of the packaging, the “synthetic” smell is very strong. It can take a while to go away also. The manufacturer recommends that you let the bench air out for a while outdoors before you bring it inside. But, this may not be an option for everyone.
It is something to be aware of if you are buying the bench as a gift or for immediate use.
Not everyone is bothered by the smell. But if you are someone who tends to notice these things then you may not want to use the bench the day that you unpack it!
Overall, however, I was very impressed with the luxurious feel and appearance of this duet bench.
Bonnlo Wooden Duet Piano Bench
- Generous warranty including a replace and refund policy for problems in the first month
- Rubber padding on the feet to protect your floor

- Some people find the buttons on the upholstery uncomfortable

Especially for the money, this is a comfortable and durable bench with a great appearance.
The generous manufacturer’s warranty sets it apart from many similarly priced models. It’s not a bad choice at all for those looking for a cheaper piano bench.
