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.  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.

  • No knobs, quick lever operation
  • No wobbling or rocking screw-type mechanism

*The HM Hydraulic bench is actually a misnomer.  It uses a superior Pneumatic mechanism with compressed air to facilitate height adjustments.  Similar Hydraulic piano benches from other manufacturers use fluid mechanisms that, if they fail, can leave an oily mess.
