Paul L. Jansen & Son is the premier builder of high quality musicians' benches in the United States. For over 50 years Jansen has provided benches for top leading piano builders such as Steinway, Yamaha and Baldwin, as well as many of the world’s top concert pianists, harpists and performers.

Jansen benches are solid and strong, made from the highest quality hardwood maple grown in the US. Their support and adjusting mechanism hardware works smoothly and makes absolutely no noise. The padding is made with extra-dense firm polyester foam which lasts over time and the vinyl is furniture grade giving the bench a beautiful appearance on or off stage. Jansen benches are fully constructed in Oshkosh, Wisconsin with all parts made in the US. Compared to other benches Jansen Benches seem expensive, but they last for many, many years.
