I'm a drummer but I bought this used for a guitar stool. That involves 100% disassembly and cleanup, and that allows me to really look deep at this throne.

On it's own it's got everything you would want; it's padded well in the seat and even though it's used it hasn't bottomed out. The backrest fits perfectly in the small of my back and is very adjustable. The M/C seat spreads you a little if you're used to round seats. You can allow it to swivel or tighten it for none. All the adjustment knobs work perfectly and securely. The height spindle is made of sturdy threaded steel. It maxes out at about 26" high which is "OK", but I'm tall. The 3 legs give me ample support for my 280 lb, 6' 8" frame. I used to play in clubs, and with set up and tear down and travel, this product would easily stand up to that.

Please notice the spindle tensioner above the legs; THIS IS A GREAT DEVICE! This tensioner is almost 3" long and is made with threads inside and interlocks with the spindle, rather than just pressing a 1/4" bolt head against it like most others. That is a huge improvement over anything I've seen.

I'd like to offer a comparison to the Roc N Soc Throne with Backrest, as I also own that throne for playing my drums. Although this Gibraltar is great for the price, and the Roc N Soc IS more money, the Roc N Soc is a better built product, it's like the Gibraltar, but on steroids! It goes up to about 30", and it also has an overall bigger, thicker seat, and a much bigger backrest. The build and materials are superior overall, but they only make thrones. For ref, the hydraulics are extremely comfortable for playing drums which I noticed because the Gibraltar (and all others) are "static" and you feel that when you get up from playing. Before buying the R'N'S, I had an original 70's Rogers throne with a comfortable, 4" thick, round seat. Extremely strong, but the spindle and seat never locked together well so the seat was "rickety", plus no backrest, and that combo was murder, so I finally went shopping last year!

I think most people would be very happy with this product. The Gibraltar throne is a great value; designed and built well. Although there may be better thrones at higher prices, it's probably the best backrest throne for it's low price, but by no means is it a "low end" product.

Thanks for reading...Now go practice!

Well, I've owned one for about 5 years now. It may be short life span which has caused me to rate it so low, but there really isn't anything innovative about it let alone anything worth paying more than 70 bucks for. The back rest bends easily (again, keep in mind I'm a 5 year reviewer), cushion isn't flat, but it's not comfortable and the cardboard/plastic backing is starting to tear off. If you like freedom, you can expect to pick up bolts after a gig as they will wiggle out easily.Other then that, it's average and will get the job done if you can't afford a luxury seat.

    Sturdy. It is set and stays put which is a plus. It is heavy but, lighter means cheaper that is why I bought this...

      I bought this throne for my son. He has had back surgery & could'nt play very long at one setting. This throne extends that time.

      Oversized Motorcycle seat with 3" padding?

      By Andrew

      from Ortonville, MI

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about Gibraltar Drum Throne with Oversized Motorcycle Seat and Backrest:

      Padding of the seat is 3". Model #9608MB.
      Buyer beware. Seat is NOT the oversized 6" extra padded model #9608OS. I made the mistake of assuming oversized seat was the same as the throne being sold without the back rest item #446261. They are not the same. If you don't need the extra wide seat, save yourself 40 ones and get the Gibraltar 6600 and the universal back. Not sure how they are getting away selling this without model numbers in the description. Very misleading.

        This throne is great. Super comfortable and sturdy. The backrest is a nice feature also. The throne top is soft and doesn't stick to you. Just as good as the roc n soc at a better price. Would buy again.

            I researched this and other similar products for sometime and found this deal on Musicians Friend, I was worried about ordering thinking it may not be as heavy duty as the much more expensive models of this type. I was wrong this is a heavy duty and sturdy construction, and though I've just started using it, i am confident its going to last.

              Comments about Gibraltar Drum Throne with Oversized Motorcycle Seat and Backrest:

              I play guitar and was looking for a chair that would swivel and not impede leg movement. This does that nicely. This is a solid stool, with a comfortable seat. A little heavy to carry but that is what makes it feel secure when seated. I'm 6 feet tall and it seems a bit too tall for guitar playing. I prefer a little lower seat position. The back is angled too far back and doesn't give very good support for me but is probably best suited for drummers.
