Ebony Genuine Leather Concert Grand Duet Piano Bench
The Piano Dad’s Review
What does it take to create a great piano bench?
The immediate qualities that come to mind are durability, sturdiness, and comfort. Having a few extra features like an option for adjustable height or internal storage isn’t mandatory, but it does help.
This ebony leather piano bench certainly isn’t perfect, but it has enough of these qualities to make it a worthy investment.
In particular, if you have a grand piano and need an accompanying bench that is large and wide, then this is a great option.
Comfort for Average Practice Sessions
In regards to the three important qualities mentioned earlier, this bench excels with two of them: sturdiness and durability.
That’s not to say it’s the most uncomfortable bench on the market, but you’ll probably get tired of sitting on it after 45 minutes or so. Luckily, that’s more than enough time for the average piano session.
What it lacks in comfort it makes up for with sturdy construction, high-quality materials, and a long lifespan.
Solid Build for Long Term Durability
The entirety of the frame and legs are made from 100 percent hardwood.
It’s clear that no expense was spared when it came to choosing a sturdy and durable wood. The manufacturer does not list a specific weight capacity, but it’s safe to assume that it can handle 300 pounds comfortably at the very least.
It’s very likely that it can handle in excess of 400 pounds due to its large size and hardwood frame.
The use of quality materials is also reflected in the price of the bench. It’s more expensive than a lot of the competition.
On the bright side, it has a long lifespan so you won’t find yourself investing in a new bench for many years to come.
The Extra Features
This bench lacks some of the bells and whistles that you would find on other piano benches in the same price range. It’s not adjustable and it doesn’t fold up for portability.
The one extra feature that it does include is a large storage compartment beneath the seat. The storage compartment is surprisingly deep.
It’s great for storing books, music sheets, and extra accessories.
