Default Round Throne for Bad Back?

Hello everyone! I'm new here.. I discovered the forum when researching drum thrones on Google. I'm a female drummer, looking for either a round or square throne with maybe a backrest. I've got a bad back and need something nice and easy, not too hard or too soft. I'd love a backrest but can't find any thrones with them that aren't bicycle-style, and that is, ahem, LESS than comfy and not gonna happen. :) Any ideas, or ways to mod a spine-friendly round throne to have a back rest? Thanks!

Roc 'n Soc makes a round throne with a backrest. You can also get a backrest to fit any Yamaha throne (including the round ones). Gibraltar also makes a universal backrest for all of their thrones.

JUst today I got a backrest for my Tama 1st Chair throne. As an oldster with a bad back this thing adjusts up and down, and forward and backward to be just about anywhere you want it. I am relieved.

Since when do they make square thrones?

Fourstringdrums- I think she had already looked at the Roc n Soc and thats what she meant about a bicycle style seat.

I have a Pearl D-2000 and its nice and comfy. it has a cut out at the back to releive pressure on the lower spine. Its not totally round but not motorcycle style either. I don't have the backrest attachment but here is what it looks like.
