Default Drum thrones (stools to those with dirty minds)

Ok, when setting up last weekend I discovered my early 80's Tama throne had given in to the ravages of abuse when I wasn't looking. One of the leg braces had crystallized and snapped in half, which made for an interesting balancing act while playing four sets of RnR. So my question to anyone that cares, what in your opinion is the best quality throne for the money. I'm considering one of those shock absorber types with a back rest. I've never used one but they do look comfy. Could that effect 'playability'? Appreciate any response...

I bought a decent tama 1st chair because I needed something less painful on my back. I dont know if pork pie and roc n soc are overkill, or if they really are great.
Personally I would recommend a DW or Tama 1st chair because those guys make the best hardware around.

Rocnsoc mate make killer stools- They are expensive, mine cost around 120 but its so solid, and more than that dead comfortable to play night after night- mine is the round type with blue top, I never bought the backrest as I have never had one and figured I probably would not use it anyways!
This will really last- its built so well!!!

Roc 'n Soc are the BEST! I have the tractor-seat style and I'm a big guy (240 lbs.) - it's very comfortable. I've been thinking about trying out a round one though.

I would never pay above $50 for a seat. I just replaced a Purecussion seat that I have had since 1988. I think I payed around 30 something for it. The parts were stripped.. It served me well all of these years. I replaced it with a basic Tama seat for 40 something. I realize some people have back issues and what not and have to spend a bit more for something big and beefy, back support and so on. I'm lucky to not have any issues so basic and cheap works for me. My son bought himself one of those Tama first chair jobs for $150 and it the thing fell apart... junk! It had to be sent back just after a few months.

If you want shock absorbers, Roc-N-Soc makes the motion throne which is about $190. If you want something with the same star shaped base but no hydraulics to it you could go with the lunar throne which is $155. If you are low on space behind your set nitro throne which also cost $155. If you don't want bounciness (and easy adjustabilty) to your throne you could go with the original throne that cost $140. The back rest is $45, I think the back rest will help you play longer and better. All of these thrones are great, pick which ever one you like.

I tried a lot of them before I bought them- my previous ones were cheap ones and lasted no time at all- when I sat on the Rocnsoc...........Man that was like a deep matress and so comfortable....It is the best seat in the house at any gig....maybe that should be a Rocnsoc- slogan?

Thanks all, for your input. I'll look forward to shopping the 'throne' with a ton more information than I had before your contribution. Because of my locallity good equipment outlets are a LONG way off, which might mean I can't try out the best seat in the house before buying it.

Default Re: Drum thrones (stools to those with dirty minds)

I have this throne:



I got it for like $75 on sale. It's amazing and in my opinion this throne is more comfortable than the pork pies and the rocknsock. I tried almost every single throne in the store. The pork pie was cool but it was pretty hard along with the rocknsock. This throne would be a million times better if it had fabric instead of vinyl. Fabric is more comfortable.

Feel free to bash away at my nonsense :)

I have the same throne with the 5 legs...super sturdy, smooth, comfortable, everything. The Pork Pie I tried out seemed a little less comfortable--but it depends whether you want a motorcycle-type seat or just rounded.

Incidentally, Pork Pie just came out with the new Gel Throne--looks pretty cool!

I used to have a Roc-n-Soc motion throne. (it was stolen a while back)

Best. Throne. Ever.

I could play 8 hours solid practice, then hop in the van and play a 90 minute set without any sort of problem. It was very heavy, very solidly built.

Here's a couple scenarios where the throne MIGHT break:
"oops I dropped it in the car compactor"
"Oh no, I've placed my throne in front of a column of tanks"
"Did I leave my throne in the blast furnace again?"
"I seem to have forgotten my throne in the bottom of a large body of salt water."

Yep. you can see the circle of Roc-N-Soc's logo on their throne (this picture is the same throne, different angle).

Haha aw man thats like when a nut in my bass pedal rolls out and it starts leaning to the left. I'm not big on drum thrones other than thats the most overrated name you could give a seat.

I am using a Ford Smart Ass throne right now with a back rest. I couldn't be happier!

I tried the DW which was as a hard as a rock. The Pork Pie let me sink all the way to the plywood base that the foam sits on. I have been using a Tama 1st Chair some. The Pearl Roadster gets used at the practice studio and it sucks. What is happening in the world of thrones is all of these with the exception of the Ford throne, is that they are being built with the cheapes forms of foam possible. These foams will either not give any or wear out quickly.

I've got the Pork Pie round throne, it was $160, but totally worth it. You do sink in pretty far, so you have to make adjustments for height. It's ridiculously comfortable.

I also have a Roc n soc with the backrest and the 3 legs. Best throne ever. I've played on it for 4-5 hours straight and my butt doesn't know the difference. I have a couple of other thrones here, that I use for practice, not cheapies, I have the exact gibraltar as pictured above. It's solid but it sure as hell aint comfortable. Roc-n-Soc nitro with the backrest, worth every penny.

Roc-n-Soc Nitro...what a great throne! I don't have the backrest, but it's the sturdiest, most comfortable throne ever...and the turning is SO SMOOTH. I love how you can make the micro adjustments with the air lift--that was deal breaker between that and the Pork Pie.

Two names the haven't been mentioned are Gibralter and Stagg. I believe the Stagg is a low rated throne, however their heavy duty saddle model looks interesting at ninty bucks. The Gibralter with a hydralic adjustment looks good at $129. Isn't this a more respected name, but is it? Need to get that broken throne replaced, so tired of the balancing act.

I hear the new Tama thrones have a nylon (or?) bushing that degrades the seat. I'm not sure I completely understand the problem, but because of this I've taken Tama off the radar (even though the throne is for my Tama drums... which are grand.

Yopu don't want to go there. It might have a good design, but the materials they use are of very poor quality and never last long.

Regarding Tama, I believe I heard that somewhere in this forum and was surprised to hear their quality had slipped a few notches. But, I can't say for sure. My Tama throne lasted a long long time, and besides a small rip the seat is still in great shape.

Yesterday I went to a few music stores and got a first hand look at Stagg, Gibralter, Pearl, Tama, DW, and a few others. Stagg didn't even get in the ball game, if you know what I mean. Pork Pie's weren't in any of the stores, so wasn't able to check them out. Without a doubt and with no misgivings I also sat on a disc shaped Roc n Soc. And without question discovered this to be the most comfortable pad I'd ever sat on, and the frame could probably support an aircraft carrier. I paid 150 for it, strapped on the back of the Harley and put an end to my search. The model I got doesn't have the nitro or hydraulic lift, nor does it have a back rest, frivilous extras I didn't feel were necessary. Thanks all for your valuable input, it was fun...

Tama's quality hasn't 'slipped' any, its improved. For the money, Tama's thrones are the lightest, sturdiest, most functional thrones on the market.

The Roc n Soc will take awhile depending on your weight/use, but you will end-up sitting on the wood base (make a note), as the quality of the foam they use is poor.

I second that. I've been flopping my ass down on a Roc-N-Soc for 15 years and its held up well.

A couple of years ago I swapped out the tractor seat for a round one. The round one came from a medical exam stool I got at a yard sale for $5. The round seat is mushier and more comfortable than the tractor seat and is much, much easier to transport. The Roc-N-Soc tractor seats are comfortable but HUGE.

I would go to a secondhand office supply store and check out their stools and seats. You might find a good one and swap the seats and you'd have a spare seat, garage or kitchen stool to use.

Les: I tend to agree with you about the quality of the Roc-N-Soc foam. I love my Roc-N-Soc nitro and their tractor seats are superbly upholstered, but their foam should be mushier.

I need to 'run down' where I got that information of the Tama thrones and when I do I'll post what was said. Like I said, my old Tama throne was 'the best seat in the house' until the big 'snap'.

The other thrones I tried were either 'extremely' hard and uncomfortable or too mushy, something I never had with the Tama four inch seat. The foam of the Roc n Soc was a bit softer and thus far more comfortable, yet wasn't squishy or gave any indication I'd soon be sitting on it's plywood base, I hope not anyway.

I have to disagree with DMC on one thing. I wouldn't want the seat to be 'mushier'. Too me it seems perfect the way it is. When I sat on it I knew without a doubt this would be the ONE for me.

It's much like sleeping on a bed. Some people like a firmer bed, some like a mushier one. I like a mushier throne seat and would even dig a water seat or a Select Comfort air seat, but some people might prefer plain plywood and everything in between.

I think a smaller seat will be more comfortable in general if it is mushier, while a larger seat can be firmer. But then there are people who probably like very small and hard seats, or a full-size tractor seat with sheepskin. Like a bed, it all depends on what feels good.

I think a smaller seat will be more comfortable in general if it is mushier, while a larger seat can be firmer. But then there are people who probably like very small and hard seats, or a full-size tractor seat with sheepskin. Like a bed, it all depends on what feels good.
Ain't it the truth! I've been using our guitarist $39 cheapy, and the truth be known... it was just fine. Maybe the comfort of the seat is really meant for those moments BETWEEN the songs rather than during... I don't know, but I sure like the Roc n Soc.

Default Re: Drum thrones (stools to those with dirty minds)

So should I get a tractor seat or a round one?

You should go try out thrones and see which one you like best. I would recommend getting a tractor though because I think you will fine it to be more comfortable.

Round ones are smaller and easier to transport, but tractors are more comfortable. After more than 10 years on a tractor seat, two years ago I switched to a round seat. It's just as comfortable as the tractor seat and much easier to transport, but it is very, very mushy, which makes up for the smaller surface area it offers to absorb shock from your butt.
