The Gibraltar Universal Back Rest is an awesome product! I had lower back surgery in 2010 and have since had difficulty playing drums for longer than an hour without my lower back hurting. Being able to lean back during performances has made playing fun once again. You will not be disappointed, even if your back is healthy.

Weak Backrest...

This back rest looks nice, feels nice, but if you lean back, or put more than a few pounds stress, it bends at the curve. Takes very little pressure to bend it...Read complete review

This back rest looks nice, feels nice, but if you lean back, or put more than a few pounds stress, it bends at the curve. Takes very little pressure to bend it back in place but the same thing will happen again. Pity really...looks stronger than it is. I'm taking mine to a welder to have beefed up and rechromed.

    • Church Gigs

    Comments about Gibraltar Universal Drum Throne Back Rest Attachment:

    I bought this for a church gig and it has worked out pretty well. I mean this isn't the Tama back rest where you can adjust it forward, but it's nice to lean back in between songs. I'm 6 feet and weigh about 210lbs and its hold us pretty well. I can't lean back too heavily, but it does work well when I'm not playing and can lean back in comfort. Every now and then you might have to bend it back forward, but it's not bad. Just for the record I have mine on and old brown vinyl Tama round thrown.

    I Think These Are Wonderful!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Gibraltar Universal Drum Throne Back Rest Attachment:

    I bought one of these and recently ordered another one. I am a diesel mechanic and work 10 hours a day of usually tough labor. These provide excellent support on my tired back after work. If you don't use it while playing, you can't beat a backrest to lean on while having a beer between sessions. As for the other review with the "bend" I say would say it flexes with weight but I find while playing I would rather have it flex than be a wall and interupt my flow. By the way I am about 170 lbs. I absoulutely love these!

    Comments about Gibraltar Universal Drum Throne Back Rest Attachment:

    Now I can lean back with support if I need to. This backrest works with both of the thrones I use. It is easier to put on my Pearl thone than my Gibraltar, go figure.
    Works on my Pearl and Gibraltar thrones
    So far so good
    It was kind of a pain to put on the Gibraltar throne.

      Great drum stool addition but needs further adjustment to enable the back of the seat to be moved further toward the stool. I still have to lean back a bit to know it's there.

                Have been playing a long time - still love it. Sitting on a throne with no back rest used to be fine, but at 50+ I have to admit that it can get tough on the back. My current throne is in great shape, so can't justify buying a new one....but for a reasonable cost, this is an easy upgrade. Was an excellent purchase for me.

                          Every throne should have this attachment. It attaches easily to an existing, solid throne tube at any point, allowing for further height adjustment.
                          I wish the backrest had a bit of movement as many drafting chair backs do but it's easier to gig with than a drafting chair!

                                    I am not as young as I use to be and my back was bothering me after playing. I needed some back support and was thinking of replacing a perfectly good throne. I was looking at new thrones with back rests when I saw this. I tried it, it saved me money, it works well and was easy to install. What else can be said. I saw it at lower price and MF more than matched the price. A good purchase.

                                    Good attachment. Just be careful where you attach it to. Some drum thrones have cheap metal work, like mine, and it bent one evening as I leaned back. Attach it to a stronger part of the "stem".

                                    It didn't occur to me beforehand, but maybe it should have: this backrest has changed my style, and for the better, i think. I feel that my footwork is lighter and quicker, and that i am distributing my stickwork over more of the kit.
                                    the universality of this thing is very useful to me, as it fits both my practice throne and my gig throne. when i think about it, though, i'll probably buy another one for the other throne.
                                    Strong enough for me. I am 6 foot 1 inch, weigh about 185 and feel very well supported.
                                    For me, with back troubles and long dance gigs, this thing is invaluable.
