Hi,

I have a Yamaha YDP 131 digital piano in rosewood and I'm looking for piano bench that matches the wood colour. Yamaha make a matching piano bench for about £70 but it isn't height adjustable. I'm concerned that I'll be told it's the wrong height for my body. I found a make called Stagg that do decent priced rosewood benches (http://www.totalmusicsupply.com/Models.aspx?PartnerID=2&ModelID=100514) but I'm concerned it won't match the wood of my Yamaha (is "rosewood" a standard colour on all pianos?).

I'm about 6ft tall. The Yamaha bench is 51cm high. I've tried sitting at this high at the piano; my feet sit parallel to the ground, my elbows are horizontal to the floor in playing position and it feels comfortable. Should I go for the fixed height matching bench or try to find an adjustable?

I'm trying to find a xmas present to ask for. \:\)

Thanks.

Beauty is skin deep. Comfort and good posture will improve your playing. I'd go for an adjustable, even if it doesn't match the rosewood.

Here's a nice selection for < $100 US. Don't know if they're available in the UK though.

I found this bench...It's rosewood but the top is velvet black.

B/c you should have to sacrifice comfort for style (or is it the other way around?)
