JANSEN'S ARTIST BENCHES

In this world, certain words say everything.  
       Such as "It's a Rolls."  
       Which Camp Trailer did your Uncle buy?....  "Airstream"
       And, for maximum hubris, how about, "It's a Bösendorfer." 
       So, which Artist's Bench did you buy?  
       "Jansen" will say it all!

 

FEATURES:
Size:  21 1/2" x 16 1/2"-- 37 lbs
Features diamond tufted vinyl top or
optional leather upholstery.  
All leg styles available (See below).  
Finish options:  
Ebony, Walnut, Mahogany, White, Ivory, or Unfinished.  
Hi-Polish and "Steinway Rub" finishes also available.









Made of solid kiln dried hard rock maple hardwood legs and frame.  
The silent "Micro-A-Just" mechanism is easy to operate and durable.  
It will give an adjustment range of 18" to 21".

The Jansen bench is the ONLY one in the trade which has brass bushings in the mechanism connecting the scissor action at all hinge points. These bushings may be replaced BY YOU (see below), extending the life of the bench for many years. All other brands of benches are trash when the mechanical device gets worn. This is the bench you see in concert halls all over the USA with the best concert grands. Jansen now makes Kawai's grand benches.

We are seeing artist benches with no name on them coming from Korea and the Orient. They look quite nice from a distance, but that is where the quality ends. The finish is plastic looking, the wood is inferior and thin, the diamond tufting is shallow, buttons pop loose, and ALL parts are of lighter material, especially the steel in the mechanism. And, as we said above, once they are worn a bit, you better have them at the height you want them, because they will seize up.

Two tests. Lift a Korean or European wonder, and then go find a Jansen bench and lift it. Also, try adjusting the Jansen bench and the foreign bench while you are sitting on it. Right-- They all go down, but only the Jansen will go up while you sit on it.

 

Basic finish is satin-- Vinyl upholstering-- See other options below

MEDITATION:


Only three presidents have not had pianos in the White House:
Gerald Ford, George H. Bush, and William Clinton.
This may say something about their cultural sense.
Harry Truman played the piano quite well.

His adversaries mocked Truman for being of no skill other than playing the piano.
Friend, I would be delighted to have a President for four years who would
play the piano more and go to war less. What do you think?
King David put it this way:
Psalms 120:5 Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
6 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.
7 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PETITE ARTIST BENCH

Size:  21 1/2" x 13"Same mechanical mechanism as on Standard bench. Better suited for smaller grands, full size uprights, and in practice rooms where the luxurious appearance of the larger bench is not needed. Also, well suited for a child who finds the Standard Bench hard to handle.

Basic finish is satin-- vinyl upholstering--

DUET ARTIST BENCH- The Limo of Piano Benches!

Size:  33" x 161/2"
The obvious need for this bench is where duets may
be called for.  There is no substitute for having a
bench which is the same height for both players.
Concert halls: The janitor will NOT throw this one
up on top of the piano :-)

Basic finish is satin-- vinyl upholstering-- See other options below

Special Finish Choices:

Some refinishers also use the Steinway or French rub when restoring old pianos.
Be sure to talk this over with us and your technician if in doubt.
Jansen does not do the "Steinway Rub" on Artist Benches since only the legs show.
This special rub is only done on conventional benches.

Custom finish or stain -- Add $ 105 (Such as rosewood for square grands)

Solid Oak, or Unfinished Wood:
White or Ivory finish -- Add $ 67
Solid Oak Bench-- Add $ 84
Red Mahogany finish-- $ 67
Special Length Legs:

Legs offered in one inch increments longer or shorter--Legs J2, J3, or J4 only--Add $ 50
Why so much? Jansen benches have perfectly matched legs.
If a Jansen bench wobbles, you may need a new floor :-)

Vinyl Upholstery is Standard (unless you order Leather)

Colors: Black, Brown, White, & Ivory
Ask about special finishes, but understand, if you order an odd finish, you own it :-)
Special vinyl choices would also be considered.

One More Touch you may Require-- Leather:

Leather upholstering is available on
all benches--  
Standard Artist Bench--                                           Add $ 358

Unfinished Standard Hard Rock Maple Bench:

It is always fearful to apply stain and a finish to an expensive bench like this.
We want you to have a way to determine if you have the stain and patina you want.
We supply a piece of sanded hard rock maple from the Jansens
to test your stains and finishes.

Again, when ordering, we need your choices in:

Leg Styles:  See the graphic above.
Finishes:  Satin or Hi-Polish or "Steinway Rub"
Style Bench:  Standard, Petite, or Duet
Wood type or style: See choices above

Upholstering: Vinyl or Leather
