Whether you’re more like Billy Joel or more like Mozart when you’re tickling the ivories, you still want to be able to sit and be supported. It doesn’t matter what type of music you’re playing when you’re at the piano or keyboard, just that you’re enjoying a cushioned seat on a padded piano bench. Even sitting through a half hour piano lesson can leave your behind sore if you’re sitting on hard wood. Take out any of that stress with any of these padded benches, so when you’re selling out Madison Square Garden every month (like Joel) or just messing around on your synthesizer at home, you’re comfortable.
