Jansen benches are the highest quality benches made anywhere in the world. This upright piano bench uses the highest quality solid hardwood maple from the East Coast of the United States (which is known for its beautifully grained wood). The lid of the piano bench features a elegant beveled edge to complement the smooth seating surface. I worked as a public school band teacher for several years - I know the abuse school benches have to endure! Between multiple students sitting on them, to being moved from various rooms - they have to be strong and not made cheaply. Jansen outfits this model with a stretcher bar between the legs, which helps prevents the bench from wobbling. This also has a music compartment under the lid. Imported benches simply staple the bottom panel on - which inevitably comes off once heavy books are placed inside. The difference with Jansen is that they route out a slot in the wood for the bottom panel to fit into. Give your students a quality foundation!
Jansen School / Church Bench
Measurements: 14" (W) x 29" (L), and 19" or 20" high (depending on the leg style--see pictures).
Setup: Requires assembling the legs by screwing 4 nuts over 4 bolts with a wrench. It is relatively easy, but the parts are a little cumbersome to manuever. If you live in Las Vegas, I can setup your bench and personally deliver it for an extra $75 - or for free if I deliver it during your regularly scheduled tuning appointment. You will see this option in the shipping section.
