Bench for Upright Piano ? ? ?
« on: March 26, 2004, 03:27:29 PM »
I just purchased a Charles Walter upright this week and was looking to get a quality bench for it.

I always liked the adjustable "Grand Piano" type benches and wondered if these benches are okay to use for uprights or if there was a reason I shouldn't be using these for an upright.

Any help appreciated.
Thanks

For the very best in a fully adjustable, ergonomically designed piano chair, check out www.concertdesign.com

This company is based in the Toronto area, and ships worldwide.

Cheers!

I don't see what the difference could possibly be between a bench for an upright and a bench for a grand.
It's GREAT to be a classical musician!

I recommend getting a duet bench.  It is wider and therefore, you can shift your butt around to make reaching certain notes in the high or low ends easier.  If you want an adjustable bench, just make sure you choose a height and stick with it- or your technique will fall apart.
