Player Piano Benches
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  I agree with Joyce Brite about player benches!  In my opinion,
the only important consideration when it comes to a player piano chair
or bench is "creature comfort".  There are no hard and fast rules, and
it is reasonable to assume that every pianolist will have a 'favorite'
chair or bench.  I have just such a chair, and it sits next to the
piano.  It is 19" tall at the front, and 20-1/2" at the back (slanted).
I'm 5' 10" tall.

As I have written here before and at my web site, I think the important
consideration is the angle of the knees.  When the angle is 'good', the
ankles do all of the work, and the legs hardly move at all.
