What's quid? is that like pound sterling or euro's? Here in the states we have dollars but we call them, "bucks, greenbacks, smackers, benjamins(100's), large (1000's)"

looks comfy...I have the pearl roadster and loveeee it! A good throne is a MUST. Enjoy! What I liked about the roadster was 4 legs instead of 3 that way my son (2 years old) who climbs into my throne often does not fall into my drums again!

There was a tama next to it. Not only did I read that online, the clerk at GC said..you might want to avoid the tama, I have one and it broke quickly.

There have been problems with the seat mount on the 1st chairs from before last year. As far as I know they've fixed all the bugs in them since then. I bought one a couple of months ago and it seems legit.
I did read a disclaimer about the thrones on the Tama site. The problems are on a certain production run and I'm sure a company like them wouldn't be making those mistakes now.
I think just about every company, especially the stuff from overseas make a product here and there that is garbage.

more info on that issue here: http://www.tamadrum.co.jp/world/1st_chair/index.html

Yeah, I saw that recall. Mine didn't have the faulty bolts in question. Been using it since '99 with no problems.

It's good to know, because it blew my mine at 1st. Tama has been known to me since about 1979 as having bulletproof hardware, more so than most other companies. I will allow them ONE transgression in 30 years. I don't want any rumors to start to discredit them.

Unofficially the best throne base on the market:

http://www.canopusdrums.com/en/other...one/index.html

2.5 Kilos (5.5 pounds)

List price- $140



The Tama bolt recall I believe needs clarification. The non-hardened bolts threads are short, they don't hold the wing nut well. The real problem is the wing nuts themselves, which are pot-metal and have very weak threads.

A good replacement is Gibraltar 'Heavy Duty' 8mm wing nut (SC-13P2_65632 ). Although still pot-metal, its much better than Tama's. 2 pack- around $5
