indehoy. Bench. July 15th , 2018.
There are three distinct styles of piano benches that are currently sold today and used by the majority of pianists as well as other musicians including harpists, guitarists and percussionists. They include the traditional style duet bench, the adjustable bench and the double bench. Choosing the model of piano bench that is best for your needs is based on several parameters including how the bench will be used and where it will be located.
Wood Finishes. Piano bench manufacturers offer a wood finish to match any finish provided by the piano manufacturer. It is very easy to get an exact match as long as you review the choices you are offered. When choosing a bench to match a mahogany piano you will need to bear in mind that there might be four shades of mahogany available from the bench manufacturer and you should select accordingly. Most bench manufacturers will offer a dark mahogany, medium mahogany (also called cherry), a brown mahogany, and a Steinway mahogany (they are popular enough and just a slight shade different that they have a shade named after the piano). Most finishes will come in a high gloss offering as well, though it will likely cost a little more money to get it. If your piano is a high gloss piano, such as a grand piano likely has, you should match it.
This position should not be comfortable. You should not be causing yourself serious joint pain, but if you are not straining to keep this super-tight position on the bench, you are doing it wrong. Remember, your goal is to increase your bench press and eventually press big weights. You essentially need to be compressing your body to get a tight, stable position and decrease your range of motion as much as possible.
