In my opinion, I stay away from tractor thrones. I find that if you dont sit on it exactly right it can cause pressure points all over your back and legs. Ive been using a DW round throne for the past 5 years and it works great and I can sit on it for a 2-3 hour plus gig....granted I havent done a gig that long in years. :P

My drum throne is the most comfortable I've ever sat on!

I have a K&M throne that is very ergonomic, comfortable and sturdy as heck!
It's easily adjusted, and it lets me sit quite high (which I do)
I also purchased the add-on backrest for extra comfort :)
This is the model:

If it's available in the States, I'd sincerely recommend it!

Roc N Soc! Felt top, bicycle-shaped, with back rest.

Check these out from my friend Jimmy Ford over at Ford Drums. I have three thrones as it is, but for some strange reason, I want one.....

I have had the same Tama Ergo-Rider (I think; it looks like a motorcycle seat) with a back rest for years. So far this summer I have had one night off and log, on average, 3.5 gig hours per night. I still have another 21 straight nights of gigging to go. I tried using a cheap PDP round throne but after 1 gig I tucked it in a closet and never used it again. I am a tall and large fellow and it did not support well for gigging. The only downside of the Tama is its' weight. I don't have a problem with the weight, but some may. I have sat on every throne out there, with the exception of the Ford thrones which look very comfortable, and I don't feel the need to change.

I love my Roc N Soc. Bicycle-style seat, felt top, air sponge, sturdy construction. I bought an add-on backrest because I was having temporary sciatic nerve issues, but to be honest, I rarely notice/use the backrest. With or without a backrest the Roc N Soc is a great chair.

Stool is a bowel movement - you probably don't want to sit on it - ha ha.

I love my Tama Ergo-Rider Hydraulix throne though it is a bit heavy. Like sitting on a sofa while playing drums ;-)

The Ford seats are ultra, mega comfortable, and seem like they'd last forever. I really like the one they have in the shop, just not the color combo.
The price seems "steep", but the throne is a very important part of a kit, so "'ya get what 'ya pay for".

I'm thinking to get one next spring. The Pearl Roadster, and Gibraltar Softy I have work fine for now, but the Ford throne is soooo much nicer, it's just the cost that is holding me back just now.

Personally I like round drum thrones, and you can't beat Pork Pie. I've tried the ROC-N-SOC thrones but I don't like the shape. It's all personal preference though.

Plus the Pork Pie's have some cool finishes...

Why do we call a brick a spade? It's a stool. If nothing else it's just a seat.

I don't call my toilet my 'defecation throne'. I've never understood why it's called a 'throne'. In fact, in the UK, 'throne' is slang for the toilet.

I have never sat on one, but they do look very nice.

p.s. I have a Tama 1st chair and a DW 9101 stool; both have been good for me.

I use the ROC-N-SOC Nitro, and it's the most comfortable chair I've ever owned. I definitely recommend it.

For the past five years, I have used a DW 9100M throne. My only other throne is a Ludwig throne that is 45 years old. The DW throne is definitely much easier to sit on for long periods of time.

Ditto. I have the Roc n Soc Nitro with "bicycle" seat (who actually rides a bike with a seat that big?). I've had it for over a decade. Still the best ever. I even wrote my thesis sitting in it.

Better to sit on the throne and push out your stool.

They're all good, just get one that's light! My RNS is really heavy, and I'm sure the others are as well. It's a pain to lug around - very comfortable - but if there's a lighter alternative, take it.

Roc soc top with Gibraltar nitro base. Easy to transport and less stiff as the RNS.

But the most comfortable throne is still the Drumframe throne.

With you all the way. When did a drum stool become a "Throne"? Kings and Queens sit on thrones I believe, but I doubt they have anything to do with Roc n Soc. My choice.

While I am in rant mode, when did a Bass drum become a "Kick" drum? Don't know about you but I don't kick mine. Nurse.............my medication.

I don't know. But then again, I've never heard anyone call a brick a spade. They always call them bricks.


I'm a drummer. I sit on a throne. Once in a while I have to bring a stool sample from my cat to the veterinarian - ha ha.
