piano stool

Just curious to ask why most concert piano stools are bottoned?
Does it improve the comfortness?

It's a sexual fetish
Our mission in life is to tune customers--not pianos.

Any fool can make a piano-- it needs a tuner to put the music in it

Probably helps as a stool softener......... :lol:
I was playing the piano in a zoo, when the elephant burst into tears. I said, "Don't you recognize the tune?" He replied, "No, I recognize the ivories!"

Good question.
Perhaps to keep the material tight over the years?

I will come down the vernon level

It's for when you fart not as loud with those little hollows and the button deflect the sound


they keep the shape of the stool as you tend to do a lot of side movement when playing

I'm not being rude at all.
I'm making a perfectly rational and intellectual observation about how the motion of the gluteus maximus over a buttoned piano stool could stimulate a performer to greater efforts.
I bet there is a website about it somewhere.

From now onwards I'll take your advise - move about more on the stool with the intent to improve my overall piano performances.

Are we saying this applies to both sexes vernon. Suse Quatro comes to mind with her Bass guitar amplifier, she is reported to have spent hours sat on the edge of the amplifier playing them low note rifts

And it looks as if it did her gluteus maximus a power of good!

If you're a parent with a growing child who loves to play piano, then an adjustable bench might be the right choice for you. piano bench, adjustable piano bench, piano stool, piano benches measurements

Adjustable benches are so much more comfortable than sitting on telephone books!
