High Quality UK Manufactured Piano Benches
At Keysound we are proud to be one of a select number of dealers in the UK to only offer UK manufactured Piano Benches. Many of the the benches offered in the UK currently are imported from the Far East and the difference in quality between these and the UK made benches is quite considerable.
Manufactured in the Midlands these benches are made from Solid Beech and not only fit together perfectly....they stay together! This fact was brought home to us when a production of Million Dollar Quartet at the Curve Theatre in Leicester told us that our Piano Stool was the only one that stood up to the rigours of the nightly Rock n Roll show. Not content with sitting on it the Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard artists stood on it and kicked it around the stage......something most of our customers won't do!
They are beautifully crafted and match the Piano finishes, both satin and Gloss, extremely well. We offer a fixed height bench with a well padded top and music storage. These are available as Solo, Duet or Extra Duet which we know it as the garden bench😄. Height adjustable benches are also available.
Here are a few pictures taken from the factory during a recent visit where it was great to follow the whole process involved in the manufacture of these high quality Piano Benches.

THE RESPONSE OF A GRAND PIANO
To achieve the level of responsiveness of a grand piano, CASIO intensively researched the characteristics of traditional instrument designs. The result: a newly-developed hybrid mechanism based on exactly the same dimensions and proportions as a grand piano. All Grand Hybrids use real hammers that rise and fall when a key is pressed, to deliver the exact response of a concert grand. USING TRADITIONAL MATERIALSThe comfort and confidence afforded by the feel of each key is of utmost importance. For this reason, the materials and manufacturing processes adopted to make the keyboard are exactly the same as those used for grand pianos. The highest quality wood (Austrian spruce, the same found in C. Bechstein Acoustic Pianos) is carefully chosen, dried, machined and finished to precise standards, providing a welcome and familiar touch.
Every Grand Hybrid can emulate the sound of three prestigious European grand pianos:
