Re: Calling All Bad Back Drummers: Ergokinetic Thrones
I really love the Charmichael seat top I have too. I got mine shortly after Les posted about it.
Very happy I got it. My spine feels better, I move & play better, and I love the freedom of movement I have. Even my arms feel better when I play.
Totally worth the money.
The only thing about shortening the spindle, is being able to do it.
A hacksaw isn't ever going to do it. An industrial band saw, or something else at a shop would be needed. I would drop a pound or so off though. If you always sit at a set height, and only deviate maybe an inch up or down, it might be worth looking into. A sturdy seat is a MUST IMO.
