This extra-long duet bench is the currently the widest adjustable bench on the market. At 43" wide, this bench will accommodate 4-hands and possibly 6-hands piano.
Hidrau Model, or HM, has been manufacturing many of the finest piano benches in Europe for years. Now available in the U.S.A., these contemporary style benches are quickly becoming the most sought after for their purposeful and clean design, their sturdy construction, and their luxurious comfort.
With this design, height adjustments are quick and easy by controlling a lever. There are no knobs that stick out, no complex mechanism to service, no linkage that causes the bench to wobble or rock over time.
Hidrau-Tech is the only mechanism on the market propelled by a dual gas spring system. Although the manufacturer refers to these as "hydraulic" benches that's
primiarily because people are familiar with the term. They are actually
pneumatic, similar to what you'd find in better made office chairs. No
oil, so no leaks.
This bench is also longer (43"") than standard artists benches (easily room for two). The height travels over 5" when most good artist benches have a range of 3".
They are perfect for performance halls, for teaching studios (where student after student needs a different height), and they are also great for European uprights like Grotrian, Seiler, Schimmel, Steingraeber & Söhne, and C. Bechstein that tend to have a higher keyboard height.
Metal Construction, no wobbly legs
High density foam cushion for support
