    Are you using a backrest?

    I have a Roc-N-Soc tractor seat w/backrest. I love it - most certainly does what's expected and wouldn't be without. But I'm not gigging so don't have to be concerned about transport.

    Comfortable/ergonomic throne on a budget?

    Love my Roc-N-Soc WITH the backrest - wouldn't be without it but no gigging any more so that plays into the mix.

    In Case you haven't Seen This.....Bermuda

    I have seen this – love it. Jon seems like an absolute gentleman and a really great guy - no pretenses. I’m sure he would be not only great to work with but simply hang out with. Best to you Bermuda. . .

    Anyone have “frozen shoulder”?

    Frozen Shoulder – YES. I had rotator cuff surgery (in my 50’s) and all of sudden I could not move my arm up much without pain. I went to rehab twice a week for over two months with marginal (more like zero) improvement. I worked on it at home for another two month and gave up – no improvement...

    The most beautiful drum shells finishes

    Are these two photos the same kit? The top picture looks redder (if that's a word). What is this finish called?

    Drum throne for short person??

    I too am vertically challenged. Roc-N-Soc makes a short base (16” – 23”) which can be locked so it does not rotate. I also added the backrest – works great.

    Drum throne for short person?

    I too needed a short throne. Roc-N-Soc offers a "short" base option (16"-23"). You can lock the swivel.

    Drummerworld and Facebook

    Good to hear but I hope nobody abandons this forum (or most others for that matter). I'm not really a Facebook guy. IMO it's so much easier to follow threads on a forum vs. FB. Just my 2-cents. . . .

    Not sure what the money beat is?

    WOW, lots of interest and opinions on this one – that’s good. I’m not the best/most accomplished drummer (huge understatement). I do what I can and attempt to “mimic” but that doesn’t always happen AND that doesn’t really bother me. I think I’m “fitting” the groove pretty well; it usually...
