In 1975, Antonio Romera founded the piano bench factory, Hidrau Model, with one ideal: to create the best piano benches in the world. Over the past four plus decades, Hidrau Model’s piano benches have become the touchstone of our field for their design, their incomparable quality, their durability, and the constant search for innovation. In such, we always satisfy the high standards our clients require. Currently focused on the second generation, HIDRAU MODEL is a leading corporation at the world level in the manufacture and technological development of piano benches. We follow the line from the start and invest in research, innovation and design with enthusiasm. …. and thus we carry forth the founder’s ideal in search of excellence in the world of music.


Our company’s vision and philosophy is centered on the constant search for excellence in piano bench manufacture. For this reason, we commit the never-ending task of innovation, incorporating new materials, technology, and design because our insignia is to create art through our stools. Thus, striving for a change of image that consolidates and enhances our trajectory, one that combines elegance with solidity, keeps with our times, and never forgets our roots, we present to you our new brand: HIDRAU.


Beyond our piano benches, we are engaged in musical culture and a way of life that is close to people’s reality. We believe in what people can achieve. And because of that, Hidrau collaborates with benefit organizations that work to help young musicians, organizing international pianos competitions as well as promoting culture and education as an axis of future value. Maintaining cooperative ties within our community is of immeasurable value toward making this world a better place.


Producing sensibly and not consuming more than necessary, we are forced to act to make our products as sustainable as possible. This can be seen in avoiding the use of harmful substances and through the projection of producing clean energy through solar panels, among other actions. All of this is done without forgetting our main commitment is to create benches that withstand the passage of time, since the best benches are those that grow old by your side.


At the end of the 90s, we bet on innovation and enthusiastically invested in research, innovation, and design. The result of that commitment has left us with a catalog of unique, worldwide patented products, such as those that incorporate the HidrauTech system and, as our latest innovation, Smart technology. We are the only piano bench manufacturers to develop proprietary technology.


The new Hidrau catalog is a collection of all the values that our benches represent in their performance, resistance, wide range of products, customization, guarantee, and functionality, all designed for the comfort and convenience of pianists. We have a wide range of exclusive and innovative designs, adapted to current needs, without leaving our classics behind. In all of them, Hidrau remains faithful to the style and quality that has characterized us since our inception.


But if there is one value that transcends since its beginnings in Hidrau, it is its international character. Our international trade seal is in the DNA of our business, given that Hidrau was born as an international company. Our stools are known and recognized throughout the world; we export to more than 40 countries and serve the most prestigious operas, theatres, international events, colleges, academies, and universities in Europe as well as Russia, Japan, the USA, Australia, Asia… And we continue expanding, because in our world there are no borders.


The company has more than 45 years of experience in the manufacture of piano benches, and we enjoy international respect and recognition for our quality within our sector from professional musicians and distributors alike. The result of this recognition is the expansion that Hidrau has achieved; in addition to manufacturing benches, we have also achieved cooperative alliances with the most world renowned piano manufacturers. This is precisely the case with “Schimmel Pianos,” of which brand we are the authorized bench manufacturer.
