Default Throne to help out my back

Well, I'm 14 and have been playing for two years and two weeks ago I was playing and my back just started hurting bad. Later I noticed that my legs were getting tired also, but when I played for jazz band at my school my legs weren't tired. Since they had the Tama round rider throne, and mine was a cheap no name throne with almost to support I knew it was the throne. So before I go buy any more cymbals I want to buy a new throne.
So I was looking at some at guitar center and I really liked the Roc n Soc thrones. I was thinking I would get a nitro throne, but if that thing breaks, I can't get it fixed. So I would get a spindle throne. But then Jimmy Ford (Founder of Ford Drums, check them out) came and I got to test out Ford's new throne the "Smart Ass" and it was very very VERY comfortable and I just sank into the seat and it formed to my butt. The only thing I'm concerned about is sitting on that for long periods of time. The throne is made of the Tempurpedic Material and I dont know but about that stuff.
If anyone knows anything about Roc n Soc thrones or the Ford Smart Ass thrones please post about what you experienced.

do you want one to support your back? or just one that will sit better? like a motorcyle throne?

I've got a roc n soc seat and backrest, they are great for me. I would also recommend the nitro or hydraulic/gas bases. They offer more comfort and give than a screw base. Bottom line is you really need to get your butt on a couple to see how they feel. I like the motorcycle seat design versus the round ones.

You're right, a good throne is essential.

Sit on the throne and lift both feet off the floor just an inch or so. Try this on every throne and see which one stresses the low back the least. Buy that one.

Also, don't sit extremely low. Your thighs should be angled slightly downward (or at least parallel to the ground) while your feet are on the pedals.

I just bought a Roc-N-Soc nitro gas-throne.I recommend this throne too anyone.I seem to not get as fatigued as I did with my other throne I choose the round seat because if it turns on you no big deal.

Good luck,
Bonzolead

The 'Smart Ass' is about the single best name Ive ever heard for a drumthrone - Brilliant!

That being said, dont just look at your throne, but assess your playing position and balance. Many people who lean fwd have back problems, and if this is your issue, then buying a new drum throne will make your butt happy, but your back is still going to complain.

Trying flattening or raising your toms to keep you upright in addition to the new throne.

I was having similar back trouble before I bought my pork pie hydraulic base round throne. I absolutely love it, and my back no longer hurts. I don't know if its the hydraulic base or the xtreme cushon pork pie uses, but it really helped me out!
