Ah! The new Sonor range. The black kit is very pretty, very very pretty.

It's a canister throne. Traditionally, hardware would be stored and transported in the stool. It did mean that there was no practical adjustment but it was a very popular idea up to the late 60s.

Just watch the great Buddy Rich.
He almost always sat on a canister throne.
So did Gene Krupa and many other icons.

A canister throne! I had no idea.
Thanks!

When I started playing drums and absorbing all the Buddy videos I could online I noticed him sitting on one. My first thought, not knowing about canister thrones, was "Why is he sitting on a trashcan?!"
