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.

Nitro Throne (A great Choice)

By Chad Carpenter

from Frisco TX

Comments about ROC-N-SOC Nitro Throne:

I have tried many thrones over the years and this throne is so comfortable and very easy to use and put together. It is also quick to set up.
This is the second one I have purchased to add to another set up at another location. The other throne is still going strong 10 years later.
Compared to other high end thrones I think this throne is priced very competitive.

Comments about ROC-N-SOC Nitro Throne:

I bought this throne for competition benchrest shooting.It is very compfortable. I have sat in it for several hours at a time while practicing with no problems whatsoever.
It assembles and disassembles easily and quickly, the removable seat and stand stores behind the seat of my pickup.The knobs do not have to be very tight, only snug and nothing slips. it holds its setting exactly, this is critical looking thru a high powered scope.
If it were to suddenly dissappear, I would buy another one just like it
Removable very comfortable seat. Heavy chrome stand. height adjustment is super easy.
Everything about it is quality, I am well satisfied
What can I say, everything today seems a little overpriced. The old adage "you get what you pay for" rings true with this seat.

Buy the best, cry once!

By JT

Comments about ROC-N-SOC Nitro Throne:

Happy! Like someone said; Buy the best, cry once.
Love the red cloth. Love the sturdy base. Love the hydraulic lift and the bounce it gives you. And I LOVE the fact that the top is removable now. Now I can pack the throne up into my flight case with no issues! I've been using a squeaky old Tama First Chair with NO give for far too long!
Everything on there is extremely well put together. From the stitching on the top and bottom of the seat to the rubber feet on the bottom, this thing is brutal!
It seems pricy, but it's well worth it.

    This throne is great. Very soft and comfortabale. This is my first throne (being a new drummer) and I don't think I could have chosen a better one. I am big (245 lbs) and it takes my weight without any problems at all.

      I am getting up in age and still drumming regularly. This throne did the trick for those 2 to 3 hour shows. My issue was the back but now all is much, much, better. Should have bought this throne sooner.

            Comments about ROC-N-SOC Nitro Throne:

            When I first bought my drum set, I bought a cheap throne, thinking what difference would a throne make. Well let me tell you that cheap thing about killed every part of my body. So I started looking for a better one, reading all the reviews on every different brand and I chose this one. I couldn't believe how expensive good thrones are, but if your going to stick with drumming, just go for it. It will be one of the best investments you make.

            I was also worried about the bicycle seat style being in the way or something, but after using it, I like it a lot better than the round style. It does not get in the way and I think it actually helps my leg movement.
