Any thoughts?

EDIT: I stand corrected, on closer analysis it appears to be a china. Same question though....

logic: when drums and cymbals are more flat...gravity works against you! when your strokes are moving horizontally though, gravity doesn't mess with your strokes. Of course, I completely ignore this fact in playing my own kit because, well, its so expensive to actually mount all your drums on a vertical plane and get that chair that leans you way back etc etc

but also, the position is really good for finger control...
Dreamer easy in the chair that really fits you.
