Two different reviewers stated that having this backrest installed on their Roc-N-Soc stool resulted in no longer being able to swivel 360 degrees (one reviewer estimated that it brings it down to about 30 degrees). One of these 2 reviews is even a "Most Liked Negative Review", and so it's probably misleading a LOT of potential buyers. I really didn't want this swiveling problem to happen to me (I'm planning to buy this backrest for the Nitro), so I asked Roc-N-Soc about it, and here's what they said:

"They must have been talking about the Tower model.....the backrest does not affect the swivel on any model except for the Tower series (which we do not recommend using a backrest on)..."

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Tower models, it looks like a bar stool. These are the only models that can no longer swivel 360 degrees with the backrest installed. The rest of the Roc-N-Soc models are completely unaffected.

I got this for visiting musicians that are elderly and would need a little support over time. The back rest works great. The problem is the stool no longer works. I need to swival 360 degrees and the backrest only alows it to swival 30 degrees. I can not use it on my stool for this reason. Any one need one? I have one I can not use.

MUST have!

By Vyper3000

from Atlanta

Comments about ROC-N-SOC Back Rest:

I have been playing on this throne and backrest for over 13 years now and it is worth it's weight in gold. When the discs and nerve in my back won't let me stand for long I can still sit and rock the house because of this throne and backrest. I advise all my students to wait on the extra cymbals and buy one of these thrones now, before a cheap one turns your back to mush.

Roc and Soc Back Rest is the BEST

By D. Herndon

from Greene County Indiana

See all my reviews

Comments about ROC-N-SOC Back Rest:

If you are playing drums and you don't have one of these you are not complete. Buy one!
I have played drums for approximately 39 years. I have owned the same Roc and Soc throne for approximately the last 15 years. I have played on a regular basis in bars, clubs, festivals, parties, TV, live radio, studios, and any where my band or I have been needed. The Roc and Soc throne is and continues to be one of the best pieces of equipment I own. Thats enough about me and my throne. As I get older my back does too, and I just recieved the back rest and installed it recently. WOW.....not only does this thing help with lower back pain, but it helps support my entire back, and holds me in a proper playing position. I feel that I even play better with this thing installed. I truely do wish I would have installed one YEARS AGO!
Same quality as the throne and installed in 2 minutes.
Yes the throne and back rest are a little on the expensive side but well worth the money if you want a comfortable product that will last.

A Must Have

By The LND

from Iowa

See all my reviews

Comments about ROC-N-SOC Back Rest:

I've owned my Roc-N-Soc Nitro with Backrest for about four years now. I play 35-40 four hour gigs a year. This thing has been a lifesaver. I have lower back trouble from time to time and having the backrest has helped me through some gigs I probably wouldn't have been able to play otherwise. My throne has been tossed around in the trailer and has held up extremely well. Roc-N-Soc makes an excellent quality product.

Great Back Throne Rest & Very Versatile

By Ray

from Miami, FL

See all my reviews

Comments about ROC-N-SOC Back Rest:

Great value for the price! I added this back rest to my, Pork Pie Big Boy Bicycle Throne and it's working out fine. If you're flashy and want a chrome back arm support, buy the, Gibraltar, one that has the same style back arm.
This is comming from a 250lb +, (Conguero), Conga Player, that plays with a set of 3 or 4 drums and cumfort and support are esential to me, for I'm an old timer already.

As always, Musician's Friend, delivered fast & well packaged, we can trust our friends at, Musician's Friend.
Sturdy, adjustable and versatile. Can be used on other thrones.
Strong iron brackets, sturdy arm for good support.
It don't get better than this! Reduces back fatigue when playing for long periods of time.

Ask me a question

Comments about ROC-N-SOC Back Rest:

I gave this backrest a 10 all the way around...its the best piece of equipment I now own! I've had the Nitro throne for about 8 years without a backrest. Lately I've been encountering a sore lower back after the first set, and by the end of the 4th set my back was really sore and stiff, I knew I needed an upgrade to my seat, so I decided to buy the Roc-n-Soc backrest. All I can say is WOW! What a difference in comfort! I should have bought the backrest years ago, its just that great! No more lower back fatigue whatsoever. The quality...awsome!...adjustability...perfect! Fit and finish...beautiful!. If you own a Nitro throne and are reading this review to base your decision on the purchase, make the purchase!!! Thanks again Roc-n-Soc for fantastic products!!!!!!!

        Comments about ROC-N-SOC Back Rest:

        Without Roc-n-Soc, I would not be a drummer anymore. I have three herniated discs in my back, and the most comfortable seat in my house is this Roc-n-Soc. You can't buy a more consistent, road-worthy throne anywhere. Be sure to pick up this optional back rest! Even if you don't have back problems, leaning into it gives you more leverage!

        An excellent and necessary addition to the Nitro Throne for preventing lower and mid back pain. I'm able to play in much longer durations now that I added the Roc-N-Sock Back Rest.

        Comments about Back Rest:

        This back rest is super. I've not had one before and it really makes a difference in the area of confidence. I am 66 years old and have been playing since I was 9. Until I bought the Roc N Soc saddle style throne I always used the cheapest stool I could find and went through many. Bought the Roc N Soc and now have the back rest too. I highly recommend both products. You won't believe how much freedom to play comes with not worrying about tipping over! Blessings, Ed< ><

          I bought the Roc N Soc Lunar throne chair at same time and placed this black backrest on my red Lunar Roc N Soc and am more impressed daily with the sturdiness and workmanship on this Made In USA fine product. I am a keyboardist with an extensive, multi-tiered set-up and this keeps me mobile and poised right in thick of it. Probably will buy another Lunar with this backrest in future.

          I've owned the matching throne for several years. I'm a bass player and use it for practicing at home. I was recently in a GC where they had one with the back on it. I have a bad back and appreciate the lumbar support and comfort this adds. It keeps me from slouching. If only I'd have known sooner...

              Roc n Sockin Back Rest

              By Scott LaVelle

              from West Michigan

              Comments about ROC-N-SOC Back Rest:

              Had to wait several weeks as this Blue version was on backorder.
              I was afraid the connection to the throne would be cheezy, but I was pleasantly surprised.
              The Base throne that I bought was all set up to screw it on. No adjustments needed.

              Very well made and is now a very comfortable setup.

              I was getting numb in the lower area while playing for 10 minutes without the rest.
              Now I don't....its amazing.

              Hope this helps.
              High priced but what are you going to do when you want the best.

                  I've been using the Roc n Soc Nitro theone now for about three years and its been great. One thing that I have always struggled with is back pain, and after turning 50 recently I finally decided to do something about it. This back rest addition has changed sever important things; one, no more back pain, completely gone. In fact, after a day at work sitting at a desk, going and playing my kit makes it feel better. Two, since my back doesn't hurt anymore, I can play as long as my time permits, awesome. The last change was unforeseen - the improvement in my posture has had a big impact on my playing. My mechanics work fluidly, I have better vision over the kit, and overall it has made me a better drummer. Remember how all the drum teachers and pros alike always preach good posture? Now I know why.

                  This is a no brainer. Time will tell as far as build quality but Roc n Soc has proven its quality elshwete so im confident in its long term capacity. Happy customer for sure.

                    This is a great addition to the Roc-NSoc as it adds really good support for your back. I have lower back pain and the back rest is idea for giving me the support I need. Highly recommend this especially if you have back problems or just want the extra support. Plus it's adjustable so you can place it where you need it for your comfort level.
