The bench arrived in a very large, heavy box. Inside was another box, and it very well protected for transit. The bench comes in four pieces and was fairly easy to assemble. Quite a bit of force is required to put the legs on the bench, but they do fit and are very stable.
This is a veneered MDF piece of furniture with some steel reinforced corner connections between the legs and bench. It looks quite good and was very reasonably priced. The height, depth and size were perfect for my seating and playing.
Cons: No height adjustment (I didn't expect that). This is very, very heavy so better to have another person help.
Pros: Good price, great shipping, excellent communication from Thomann, and it was easily assembled.
