We have been importing piano stools from the CGM company in Italy for many years. This direct importing has a very positive effect on the overall value as these stools are unbeatable for the price! They are most often paired with digital pianos and have become considerably more popular since Yamaha stopped supplying their Clavinova range with fixed height stools. This CGM 118-BB model is significantly cheaper than the Yamaha own brand stool and is fundamentally the same. The black finish on this stool is a good match for the Yamaha 'Black Walnut' finish. It also suites the black finish of Roland and Casio digital pianos.
This stool itself is very robust. The frame and legs are made of composite wood which is then covered in a black satin veneer. The 4 legs are securely bolted to a strong metal bracket held in each corner. The seat is foam padded and covered in an easy clean black vinyl.
These stools do come flat packed and require self assembly - this entails simply bolting the legs of the stool to the underside of the seat.
Also available in a rosewood finish as the CGM 118-RB
