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 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.

    Helped My Back Problem

    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.

    • Can't Lean Back Heavily

    Best Uses

    • Church Gigs
    • In Between Songs

    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!

      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.

        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.
