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.

    Comments about Gibraltar Universal Drum Throne Back Rest Attachment:

    The Gibraltar Universal Drum Throne Back Rest Attachment is a perfect fit for Ahead's Spinal Glide Drum Throne (SKU #H96979 000002001) offering plenty of clearance and multiple adjustments at a reasonable price. The combo is the ultimate in comfort and lumbar support - solid as the rock of Gibraltar.

            Comments about Gibraltar Universal Drum Throne Back Rest Attachment:

            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.

                I am using my back rest on a different brand throne. It was easy to attach and provides me much needed support to my achy back.

                  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.

                      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!
