Default What is the best throne?

I just want everyone's opinion on who makes the best throne I'm leaning towards Roc-n-Soc this past weekend I jammed a gig with this guy we played from 9:30 p.m to 1:30 a.m.
and we only took 1 break the first set was 2 1/2 hrs. my endurance isn't. a problem but my legs were numb and my Arce was sore I got a old Rogers throne that I recovered and is a good throne but i was wanting to get something more comfortable.

Any suggestions?

I like the Roc-n-Soc thrones. In fact I paid a lot of $ for a DW 9120 with the tractor style seat. Hated it so I sold it and bought the above. The biggest complaint I had with the DW was the locking collar mechanism on the shaft.

I have a Gibraltar 96080S Oversized Cloth Top Moto-Throne.

I also use a Tama HT25 that I use at band rehearsal which isn't mine, but for being a $37 throne and not that thickly padded, it's one of the more stable and comfortable thrones I've used.

I just let my butt decide


I also chose Gibralters, with a standard, round, suede/maybe cloth? top (black). Can't remember the model number.
I wasn't the thickest looking throne seat but was the best for me.

Are you buying from a large store?

I got if from a large drum warehouse which had about 15+ thrones set up all over the place.
I took my time, tried them all & found the most comfortable. I knew beforehand that a regular sized round seat without backrest was what I was after.
To buy a throne without trying it is,...well risky & possibly painful.

My 230 lbs likes the Roc-n-soc...

Air shock gizzo with the back-rest. Red cloth...schmoozy comfy and dries up fairly quickly from the sweat-ex.

You know for $100 the Pearl Roadster Throne with the shock suspension is great. I just got one.

Thanks everybody for your input I tried countless number of thrones over the weekend and decided on the Roc-N-Soc Nitro w/round seat.I know everybody has the Bicycle style seat and that is a comfortable seat but you can only sit on it one-way with a round seat you don't. have to worry about it turning on you and I've always played round seat thrones .can't. wait till it gets here.

Again thanks everybody for your input it helped me on making my decision.

Keep Swattin'
