Default Big Round or Square Thrones

I need a big, round or square throne. The larger the diameter, the happier I will be. It also needs to sit very high, so that I can dangle my legs off of the sides when necessary. I do not like motorcycle style thrones.

These are surprisingly hard to find. Any ideas?

My Roc-N-Soc came with a motorcycle style throne but I got a round one nearly as large at a yard sale. It was on a wheeled doctor's stool, the kind they have in the exam rooms. I swapped the mountings between the two seats.

I got tired of schlepping around large seats, however, and about a year ago I got one of those small throne seats. It's smaller but still pretty comfortable (especially on the Nitro base) and much easier to pack around.

Did you look into pork pie.. I prefer Motorcycle style so my experience with round ones is very limited and painful but in all honesty they have been real cheap round oneswith about 1/2" of foam which is no where near enough.

Wow, that throne looks awesome! Do you know what kind it is? It looks expensive, but I'm willing to throw down up to $200 for something nice.

Even the motorcycle-style one next to it would work. I can turn those around backwords while doing double kick stuff, just as long as there is no deep indentation for your butt.

Any other ideas?

I prefer round thrones myself they sit the same every-time. If you had a bike seat type of throne turn on you and you sit down you know what I mean.

An un scalloped bike seat like the TAMA ERGO RIDER can be turned around and used like a round seat w/o the cut outs.

I've got a Pearl D-1000c

I don't remember exactly how much I paid, but it was less than $150 CAD, taxes in.

Have been very happy with it, would recommend.

Would you say that the width of the D-1000 throne is above average? Or, is it a pretty standard size? I'm looking for something BIG.

Thanks everybody!

I also prefer round thrones, as long as they're not too large in diameter. I had a Roc N Soc round throne that was a bit too large. After about twenty minutes it would stop the blood flow underneath my legs. I took it back and got a Tama round drum throne instead. I do still have my Roc N Soc bicycle seat Nitro Lunar throne though.

My advice would be to sit on the seat for a while before you buy one. I had no idea I would have that problem with the round Roc N Soc seat because at first it felt very comfortable.

I have a 9000 series DW round throne and I really like it. It is a heavy seat but that also adds to its stability.
