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.

          Best drum throne on the market. Spend the money and get the matching backrest to go with it you will be very happy you did, I love mine. I got the blue throne with blue backrest to match and all I can say is WOW this throne is awesome

          The Good And Bad

          By Jake the drum teacher

          from san francisco, CA

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about ROC-N-SOC Nitro Throne:

          This seat is all kinds of comfy, and for a full-grown adult, it's fairly easy to adjust. That said, I needed a top-quality, easily adjustable seat for my drum lessons, and this seat fails in two spots:
          1. It's maximum height is about 4" shy of what a normal seat reaches, and that makes it worthless for us tall folks that like to sit up high (they do sell an extended height version, but then it won't go low enough for the kids).
          2. Kids don't weigh enough to be able to adjust it on their own. The hydraulics require someone probably over 130lbs to push it down.

              I use the Roc-N-Soc to sit on when playing guitar for practice/rehearsal. I can sit on it comfortably for long periods of time. I recommend the back rest also especially if you have low back pain as the backrest helps support my back. The stool is sturdy and made well. Highly recommend this stool.

                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..

                  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.
