I would not recommend this for the gigging drummer as it is not the easiest to adjust but stil easy enough and I can see the rough edge post wearing out pretty quick with constant adjustment. But for a home practice setting or a setting where it will not be moved, I would say its a great buy especially if on a budget. I use this for home practice and it shines at that since I just set it the first time I bought it and its stayed at that height ever since (BTW, I'm 5'11" and 200 lbs to give you a size comparison). For my main throne, I have a hydraulic style I use with back rest but I actually like this one a little more because it sets you a little more forward. It makes you sit straight and focus more on proper posture vs them lazy thrones that kinda make u sit back like a couch potato. Either way, don't expect a lot for this amount of cash but if you're tight on a budget and need something that won't be moved a bunch, I would say, go for it. If you need the best, skip this and save you're money.

Save your money and buy a better quality throne. It broke while I was sitting on it and I only weigh 180. I leaned over on my set to adjust a tom holder and the wood (I'm guessing pressboard) on the seat bottom broke on one side. Also, the lock collar is very tight and difficult to use. One of the worse purchases I've ever made.

    Comments about Gibraltar 6600 Series Motorcycle-Style Drum Throne:

    When i got this throne for Christmas last year, i thought it was great. And it was for about 3 months until the lock which locks in the height stopped working. The lock is like a screw and it wore down so much that it wont lock at all and the seat jst slides down

    buy one with a post design, this one will get annoying fast
    features? like having to put a memory lock on the post for it to stay in place? the rubber collar that is supposed to hold it doesnt work well.
    i guess its not terrible for the price.

    Comments about Gibraltar 6600 Series Motorcycle-Style Drum Throne:

    I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this drum stool! It happens to be my absolute favorite of the drum stools I have used over the years. I recently ended up in a financial position and sold a lot of equipment I didn't want to sell. Recently, trying not to spend a lot to finally get some new equipment I've been without. Let me tell you, this is the absolute best buy for the quality and price. Seriously, I have always had problems with numb legs from drum stools previously and also problems with the seat slowly falling down into a lower position. This thing is excellent to keep circulation in legs and STAYS in it's chosen spot without moving downward. It's EXCELLENT! A must have if you are looking for quality and not wanting to spend a lot!

    Comments about Gibraltar 6600 Series Motorcycle-Style Drum Throne:

    I bought this throne to use at the church. It only gets used a couple of time a week. It's a cheap motorcycle style throne, but it's just that cheap. I stood on it (i know it's made for sitting) to reach a sound panel up above the drums and the wood on the bottom of the seat snapped. I'm not that big of a guy (under 190 lbs) It was great for sitting but wood underneath is VERY thin! I guess they had to skimp somewhere.

    Comments about Gibraltar 6600 Series Motorcycle-Style Drum Throne:

    This is a well made, good quality throne. I purchased this to stop my leg from getting numb on my round throne. It worked great. The shape frees the legs up without numbing. I would not recommend this throne though. I do not like the insecure manner in which it locks the height.

        Comments about Gibraltar 6600 Series Motorcycle-Style Drum Throne:

        OK First off it dosnt matter how sturdy the throne clames to be, standing on it is just never a smart idea thay are spisificaly designed for sitting not standing.. this throne is built quite well for the price. I got this throne about 6 months ago and its holds up verry well its very sturdy (im about 190 and it holds me up just fine) I normally use a round seat but this seat is very comfortable. The memory lock is alittle inconvenient becaus i like to have a little wiggle room to position my self but other than that its a great throne!

          Comments about Gibraltar 6600 Series Motorcycle-Style Drum Throne:

          I finally succeeded in getting this Gibraltar 6600 series Motorcycle Style Drum Throne set up. I will use it with my digital piano as a piano bench. I set it to 20" just like my piano benches and it's light and portable for traveling now.
          Here is what it took to complete the set up. I went to my local hardware store and they loosened the "memory Lock" with a pliers and his thumb holding the nut in place. Then I measured the pipe and reset that unit on the main pipe that fit into the legs on the bottom and the seat on the top. The unit has 3 wing locks. Getting the middle one to hold the seat in place without it swiveling was a challenge. The hole coming through didn't open enough for the screw end to touch the metal pole. So I pried off this plastic unit that held the pole in place. Took out a metal strip that was preventing the hole from staying open. Put it back on and then using a vise grip and my work bench clamp vise to turn the wing lock enough to settle and grab onto the pole. Where were the directions for this!!!!!

                  Comments about Gibraltar 6600 Series Motorcycle-Style Drum Throne:

                  What can I say, I am thoroughly impressed with how sturdy and wide the seat is. It has a wide range of height and is perfect for me. I assembled in less than 2 minutes and was happily drumming soon thereafter. I was worried it may not be as higher quality compared to some other thrones going for double what this one goes for but this far exceeds my expectations. If you are on the fence, just buy it. It's nicer than you think!
                  Some people have complained that you have to use a drum key to move the height up and down. I don't get why you would need to adjust the height during practice or gigging but some people like that preference. Those that are concerned about it breaking down fast for gigging, it has wing nuts on everything you need to easily take it apart. The drum key is only needed to adjust the height.

                  Comments about Gibraltar 6600 Series Motorcycle-Style Drum Throne:

                  I bought it on sale to use as my main throne. The most irritating part is the piece that's supposed to lock the height of the throne in place. The thing is impossible to move even when the entire screw is taken out. You can't move it with your hands alone which makes adjusting the height a huge pain. I wish I could return it. The rest of the throne is pretty well made which is why I gave it two stars.

                              I don't like how you set the height. Once you set it, you dont' really move it unless you use a tool.
                              A pain. Quick release would have been better.
