What about the Roc-n-socs? I've been hearing some good stuff about them too, not the nitro ones.

Roc-n-Soc Nitro Throne, or Nitro Throne Extended for the taller players. Comfey, a nice bounce, and it looks cool too.

Do a search, this topic has been covered many times; you will finds tons of detailed info.

I'll put my vote in for Roc n Soc, very comfy throne and add a back rest to it and ooooooooooooooooooooh it's like sitting in a lazy boy ( o.k. maybe not that comfy) but it's a very comfy seat. I'll second getting a hydraulic base regardless of the brand you get, they are much nicer and give a little added cushion you don't get from the screw style ones which is easier on your back.

Saddles style thrones:

Roc-N-Soc.

Very sturdy construction and stays comfortable for a long time (as in years of use). Comfortable when you have to sit on it doing multiple sets.
Many different styles to choose from, and they all have the same quality.

Tama Ergo-Rider.

Great contruction, very sturdy and really comfortable.
It has some "give", but doesn't feel mushy like you're gonna sink into it.

I got one of these early in this year. I liked it so much I ended up getting a second one (one for each kit...different locations) and I've been very happy with them.

This seat goes pretty low --I sit at about 19".
It does have a good height adjustment range, and feels real sturdy when it's higher.
It wasn't that expensive, I think I only paid about $125-29 for it.

I have two Roc-N-Soc thrones, both saddle style with backs, on Nitro and one not.

There is a huge difference between them, the Nitro is bar far the best my butt and sat on!

Might want to check these out. They look pretty comfy and sturdy to me. No to mention stylish.

Here is one he custom built for Francois (Unix drums).

Ok, that settles it. I'm gonna go with a roc-n-soc nitro. I would try the soundseat, but there isn't anywhere around here to do that and it is just to expensive.

Thanks again everybody.
Thanks for the thread Rob.

... they're using Gibraltar bases (like everyone else) BTW. You may want to price both base and top seperately, 'might' be cheaper.

NOT true. Please call me before you post misleading information. I will be glad to answer any questions posed to me. BTW, I own the company.

Even though J.R. himself already chimed in, I just want to say myself that you do need to check your information before you spout it on a public forum.

Take a look at these bases http://soundseat.com/models.html Do they look anything even remotely close to what Gibraltar or anyone else puts out?

Anyway... I just got a Gibraltar 9608OS Oversized MotoThrone and it's one of the best I've used so far.
