Hello!

I've been looking for a bench replacement and can't seem to find anything that goes lower than 17.5". Ideally I'd like to get something that goes down to 16". Am I out of luck? I could of course use a non-piano stool that goes low enough but it looks weird as hell. Current bench is the standard 19" and it's killing my back.

If anyone here knows more about benches, I'd be so, so grateful it if you could point me in the right direction. Thank you!

Hmm you might contact jansen directly amd inquire?
Or  if you know a skilled carpenter or craftsman or furniture builder you might take an exisitng good kne even used and have it modified
Or you can have the piano placed on institutional moving casters like music schools do, that usually raises the instrument off the floor a bit, bjt id probably explore the first two options more first

Thank you, I'll definitely look into getting a modified bench. I imagine a moving caster would look kind of odd sitting stationary at home, so for now shorter bench legs would be the way to go! Always thought Jensen benches were a tad expensive, but maybe that's my best bet.

Standard height bench + hacksaw = low-height bench. Simple.
