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. This bench is also longer (30") than standard artists benches (often room for two). The height range is 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 Seiler, Schimmel, and C. Bechstein that tend to have a higher key height.
