I'd been eyeballing this chair for more than a year, just didn't buy it because I'd just bought a Carmichael Throne a couple of years earlier, and was trying to get some mileage out of it. But even though The Carmichael was supposed to be good for the prostrate, I didn't have prostrate troubles. I had back troubles. Finally, after quibbling about it for another 6 months, and letting some of the other reviews deter me, such as a squeaky noise (that I thought some graphite oil or W4D would cure anyway), I went ahead and bought the Nitro Rock N Sock. I haven't had an ounce of back pain since I bought it! I like the "give" it offers in its hydraulics, and the seat itself also offers some give in its comfortable cushion. I have yet to walk up the stairs with severe neck and back pain, like I did with the other 2 stools. And if it did squeak (which it hasn't so far) -- I'd rather have a squeak you can oil, than back pain any day. I just wished I would've bought it sooner. But now I know! (And another reason I decided to just go ahead and get it, is because, if the hydraulic lift ever wears out, the seat is compatible with the Carmichael legs!) Definitely the nicest chair I've ever sat on -- and I sit for 4-5 hours at a time!

I like everything about this throne but it's not for me. Unfortunately, it wasted my back in less than a month. I could not get comfortable and I really tried. I started to get really bad lower back pain and I'm now on my 5th chiropractor appt to ease the pain. For me, it was impossible to find a sweet spot. With a round throne you can kind of go where you need to be. With a tractor style seat you are in a set position. Also the leg cutouts are non-existent so if you sit high it's hard for your knees to be lower than your hips. With the ridge in the back, you better like where you're sitting because there's nowhere to move. A highly rated best seller and it will probably work for 90% of the players out there but there is a small percentage of drummers that this throne, or this style of throne, won't work for. And if you're squirming around trying to get comfortable, you can do some damage. Just take a bit of time in the shop and make sure it will work for you. If not, keep your receipt.

    Comments about ROC-N-SOC Nitro Throne:

    I've been using my Roc N Soc for the last 20 years. It makes a huge difference if you are comfortable when you're playing. My back and butt are trashed after an hour sitting on anything else. Do yourself a favor..buy it..I promise you..you won't regret it..

      Comments about ROC-N-SOC Nitro Throne:

      This throne is a complete 180 from my previous throne. I used to use a round throne will little padding and now I am in love with the saddle throne! The throne is both comfortable and encourages proper posture by ensuring even contact from your hips to the seat and ensuring the hips sit in the correct position. I suffer from an L5/S1 herniated disc and I am able to play for 2-3 times longer than my old throne before feeling back fatigue. Having a high quality throne makes a huge difference!

        I'm a keyboard player and I purchased this throne with the backrest for our drummer at church who was having some lower back pain from sitting through both services and rehearsal on Sunday mornings. He said that this is the most comfortable throne that he has ever used. After sitting on it, I'm going to order one for myself to replace my piano bench.

                    This is exactly what I have been hoping for and expecting from this top brand. Played for many years with a "standard" tama throne and with many of hours of practice a day, it was very uncomfortable. This costs a pretty penny, but WHAT A DIFFERENCE!

                    Once you try this throne out, you'll never go back to a traditional style throne. Might seem a bit pricey, but it will probably be the last throne you ever buy.
