Well, my one is too short for me (... I'm a little short for the piano :'( ) so need an adjustable one.. Budget is 60, have found a few but not exactly sure if theyre good since they only have a few sold..

Unfortunately not on your budget limit... I love mine, but it's a bit more expensive:

Worth every penny IMO...

I usually read reviews, not looking at how many are sold. I don't know though. A bench is important,  it's surprising how many people forget that.
You might have seen one of my videos without knowing it was that nut from the forum

A bit? lol
Thanks though, will see if I can up my budget by a bit.

Yep. For the past few weeks I've placed thick blankets on the piano bench to increase height.. not really uncomfortable but not exactly comfortable either :/

I would definitely recommend the acadamy available in vinyl or leather.  I have bought two - one for my Steinway model B and one for my Yamaha digital.

Why?  Well unlike my previous benches they have some excellent cushioning so much more comfortable to sit on for long periods. They are also very liberally buttoned which also helps with the comfort. They are a neat modern design too and easy to raise and lower. Downside is they are expensive but you will be sitting on your bench for long periods of practice - won't you?  ;D
