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.
