A routine piano service should include more than just piano tuning. A good technician will inspect many things on your piano including the bench. When I arrived at this new client’s home, the top of the bench had sustained damage from the child rearing days. The top had been pulled from its hinges and was totally separated from the rest of the bench. I was able to make a very nice repair by fixing the damaged and split out wood and refitting the hinges. This piano bench should now last for many years. Another big reason for maintaining a bench is the cost for a replacement bench. New piano benches start around $350!
Oh, by the way, if you’re in need of a new bench, we have a very nice selection.
