Default Throne Backrests

I have a pinched nerve in my back. So I ordered two Gibraltar backrests for the two different thrones I use (one at church and one that is mine). They arrived today, so I put one on my throne. It seems as though it is really going to help.

Does anyone have an opinion about thrones with backrests?

Peace and goodwill.

I have one, but it's too cumbersome to lug around to gigs, so I just use a standard round throne. Never noticed any difference with or without it. I just have bad posture in general.

I have one on my Tama throne and it makes me aware when I'm not sitting upright.

Same here. I got one last year and used it for a few months and took it off. Come to think of it i don't even know where i stored it! lol I really didn't notice anything different either. I also have bad posture.

I love my Gibraltar back rest seat

It keeps my posture up.

And during any long rehearsals, or whatever, I can sit back and relax in-between songs, or while waiting for the guitarist to tune, etc.

Thanks for the responses. If I want to continue drumming, I have to sit up straight: otherwise, my back will hurt too much. Peace and goodwill.

I have a Roc N Soc with a back rest. When I use the back rest I notice I sit with my back more straight through the night and my back does not hurt. If I don't, I tend to slump and my back hurts. So yeah...I vote for the back rest.

I have a roc'n'soc with a backrest, although I've never actually put it on. I will give it a try next practice. I've have yet to experience any back problems since moving to a good throne tho...

I also have a Roc N Soc Lunar throne. I didn't buy the backrest until I retired it from the kit to the mixing position. I usually have to straddle the thrones because of limited space behind the kits, so the backrests for me just get in the way.
