They're just thinking ahead; you can play your piano right up until the last - I mean the very last - minute!

Cheers!

When I bought my Baldwin concert grand (used), it came with a Jansen bench. I spent about three months without access to that piano or bench, and now that I have my Jansen again I can't see myself ever willingly using anything else!

If you want modern look and can drop the storage requirement the Adagio 40K by benchworld is great. The new version has adjustable feet which is great to remove any wobble. I saw it in a showroom and immediately loved it as it didn't look like a traditional bench was more modern. However, I wasn't ready to spend $550 so I waited and kept using my $20 On Stage with storage. Once I made the purchase I had no regret and my body ached less too. I did have a hard dropping the storage as for me I like to keep books put away when not in use. But I find myself using ipad version of books and scores more and more...

If I were you I would give up on the height adjustment, because it's just you playing and you're not growing. The cushion can be made to give the bench the right fixed height for you.

Unless you put the height adjustment under the storage compartment?
