Default Cheap but REALLY comfy throne

Hey Crew,

last night's gig at the Harvest festival involved me using some other guy's kit. I have to say the throne was WAAAAAAYYYY better than my cheapo CB one. It's a Pulse Pro Saddle Throne, and was ergonomically correct for me, comfortable, and ZERO butt-fatigue.

I looked online, and they sell for $60. It's a "four-legger" though-- no problem for my setup.

Does anyone here own/use one? Any drawbacks? It's about $100 bucks cheaper than other "saddle/ tractor" type thrones.

Feedback PLEASE--as I think I'll be buying one within a week or 2.

Cheers,
C. P.

I use a "Custom - Percussion" throne, also four legged. It's pretty much a cheap version of the Roc'n'Soc.

The one your looking at is probably similar.
If you can get that one, instead of a $150 one, GO FOR IT!!!

:D

Yep, I've got this throne, and it's very comfortable and stable. The only problems with it are the rubber feet on the bottom of the legs have all gotten cut through by the sharp edges of the leg ends, so you can actually push them up on the legs, but this isn't a huge issue functionality wise. Also, I've never been able to remove the top seat portion for some reason, but I never usually did that any way. But, other than those things, I've had no other issues at all, and I've had this for about 3 years. Definitely the best throne you can get at this price.

Similar thing happened to me many years ago involving a Roc'N'Soc.....................I've owned one ever since.

You can now own a brand new Roc-N-Soc with backrest for 160$ usd. My opinion is that's a good deal.
