Let's talk: (800) 338-8863



Our home is
near the
Great Smoky
Mountains.
The "smoke"
is caused by
the tree leaves
which give off a
gas which forms
a friendly haze
that gives the
distinctive look.
This is a case
of natural
"pollution."

Others web merchants brag that they will beat any price from another
Jansen bench seller. Not so. We will beat them all and always have.


CONVENTIONAL BENCHES

FAQ: "Are the bottoms of these benches stapled, screwed, or routed?"
Answer: From Paul Jansen--
"Anyone found with a staple in their hand at our shop will be fired."
All Jansen bench bottoms are routed.

SHORT AND EXTRA TALL FOLKS:

Do not despair. For an additional $50 the Jansens will make longer or shorter legs. (Brass ferrule, Spade Foot and Square Tapered legs only.) Here is how to determine how high the bench should be for you. Find a chair that is close to a comfortable height for you. Add phone books or coffee table books to the chair until you like the height. The ideal is for your wrists and arms to be level with the keys when playing. But, beware of getting the seat so high that you have to struggle to reach the pedals. Measure the height of this high tech contraption at the seat to determine how much to add to, or shorten, the bench you want. How is that for advanced improvisation?

STUDENT, DUET, OR SCHOOL BENCH

Do you have a big family of kids playing the piano?  This is the ideal Piano Bench for you.  Notice the triple braced legs!  Why is this important?  

Well, let's suppose you have only three people in your family playing the piano.  Every day, each player sits up to the piano to play for a while.  That is a drag out, then pull in to the piano twice for every playing, right?  That is four trips for the piano bench to be drawn  across the carpet.  

Each trip tugs at the legs considerably, especially the adjustments by the player when he or she is sitting on the bench.  Now, how many trips is that for your dear old bench in one year?  Are you ready?  That is 4380 trips across the carpet every year.  If you are a Mormon or Baptist family with a full house and, let's say, five piano players and occasional guests--  
May I suggest that this is quite a drag for your piano bench?  

Of course, the main feature of this bench is that it is the only conventional bench made for playing duets.  
Churches and Schools will want to consider this feature.

YOU are a great candidate to consider investing in one of these sturdy giants of the piano bench trade.

Jansen's School Bench features a large music compartment also. There may be other makes of this style bench which are cheaper, but the quality is not there. We carry only this one.

Size:
14 1/2" by 33" by 19" high. 

Finished in:
Ebony, Walnut, and Mahogany.

J525   --    BASE PRICE:  $ 475

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:  Use Part Number please
Wood type or style: See choices above

Upholstering: Vinyl or Leather

WORLD WIDE ORDERS:

I searched the world for a good bench, and all I found were flaky weak legged benches from Italy and the Orient. If you like deco rubbish, and if you weigh less that 130 lbs (60 kilos), go ahead and buy one of these spindly legged strays. But, if your bench will do hard work, you need the best world class bench. This time, "Made in USA" truly IS the best.

We don't question other people's work, but when it comes to piano benches, Jansen is the best, hands down, and er.... fanny down.
AND, we ship overseas. Inquire by E-Mail please.

If you need a bench in a country outside of the USA, we will ship to you--
Ask our happy customers in Bermuda, Guam, and the Falkland Islands.

HERE IS HOW TO ORDER,

Indicate the Leg Style (above)
Style Bench by Part Number
Choose a finish color (Mahogany, Walnut, Black, White, Ivory, Unfinished)
Choose Satin or Hi-Gloss or "Steinway Rub"
Choose Vinyl or Leather
Indicate special leg length if any
Indicate solid optional wood (Oak, Mahogany, Walnut)
