Default Taller Drum Thrones?

Hello all,

I've recently picked up a double-bass pedal and was intending to play it heel-up. Problem is, I'm well above average height and playing heel-up on my current drumstool is pretty uncomfortable because of how high up I have to raise my knees. Does anyone know of a source of taller-than-average drum thrones in the UK? Does such a thing even exist?

Thanks in advance,
4

You can probably find some places online like ebay. The Roc-N-Soc Lunar drum throne goes up to 27". You can also get the Pearl D790 on ebay which goes up to 25.6".

I am 6'4 and had the same issue, regular stools were to short or just to wobbly when they had to be extended to the max height. I went the cheaper way out and bought a rock n soc tower seat instead of the regualr drum stool. they have a tall 29" and a short 26". bought the tall and after i sat in it for a few weeks i cut off 1" of the base and its perfect. u can put the roc n soc back rest on it but then it will only swivel like a foot left and foot right, still enough to move with when playing if u want the back rest. i dont even use the back rest anymore.
the tower seat is 109.00 and only comes in black and YES the bottom wont fold up so its big and bulky for sure lol but is cheaper than 159.99 for the regular fold up seat and works great as a stool anywhere, great for guitar players as well

Not that tall, just super long arms and legs. Got the Roc-n-Soc Lunar w/ backrest. In a word...
AWESOME!

Initially struggled with the cost, waited for a sale and finally got rid of the, "stool," that came with the kit. I now have a throne.

Though a relative neophyte, I'm no teenager. The more comfortable I am the more I can practice. Works just as well for playing my didgeridoo.
Well worth every nickel.

cheers,
firesis

Same here.

I have the Roc-N-Soc Nitro. I am about 5'10" and play a 26" bass drum with a double. I have it set to max height and I feel it could be a little higher.

A low tech option that could put you where you want to be is having a "throne riser." You could use a piece of plywood, (as big as your throne foot-print), make it as tall as you desire, and presto blammo, added height. Your imagination is the only limitation.

Otherwise, start checking what height manufacturers are making their various models and go from there.

Good luck!

I have long legs and long arms.. I look funny when playing the drums . I actually had to build my own custom throne just to be confortable. . I took a very soft make-up chair when a round padded seat. Along with the shaft . .I just modified and inserted the assembly into the old drum throne male end shaft. WOrks out well. .I got up higher, and the cushion on this seat is amazing..

Craziest throne I saw someone play live with was a Weedeater show. Their new drummer, Travis Owen was playing while sitting on a cinder block with a phone book duct-taped to the top. And he moves around a lot... a lot more than I might have had I had to do the same.
