I play steel-string guitar in classical position, with left foot raised on a footstool, and needed a chair that wouldn't make my back sore. It's hard to find a truly flat chair at just the right height; most chairs slope backwards and that's a killer. I did a lot of internet research and it came down to either The Original Guitar Chair, or this Original Roc-N-Soc throne with the threaded height adjustment. I chose the throne because it can go down to 18", it's a lot less expensive, and it swivels which is good in a lot of situations.

I was worried that it might rock around a lot, but it doesn't. It's solid, stable and comfortable. I can't say exactly why but it doesn't make my back ache after playing several hours. That was becoming a big issue with my old office chair. When you're sore, you just don't feel like playing.

It's also reasonably portable, especially if you remove the threaded stopper on the height adjustment screw, which knocks more than 1 pound off the weight (seriously, I put it on the kitchen scale - 18oz). The only purpose of that stopper is to restrict the height to 20", which may be good for drummers but is too high for me (I'm 6' + 1/2").

My only complaint is that it would be even better if it could go down to 17 or 17.5 inches. Then I could play barefoot and still have the right thigh either parallel to the floor or slightly higher at the knee, which helps keep the guitar from slipping forward. Tip: soft plastic bumpers applied at the contact points are also a great help.

The product appears to be solidly made, and it is relatively comfortable to sit on. However, there doesn't seem to be any positive mechanism to prevent the seat from rotating. There are a couple of set screws that can be tightened to the limit of one's strengh, but neither of them has a positive engagement with any notch or other receptacle in the seat post, at least that I have found.

If your butt or back hurts, BUY THIS SEAT!

By Scott Ross

from Alabama

Comments about ROC-N-SOC Original Saddle Drum Throne:

I used to play on the standard round seat, and after a 4 hour gig, I could hardly walk. Back and butt would kill me! After getting this seat, played 2 nights in a row, both 5 hour gigs, and felt great! This thing is like a seat from a 1968 Cadillac! It's Huge, and soft (but not too soft). This seat would even be great for guitar players who need a break. HIGHLY recommended!............
Great adjustments. The only negative is if you are a super low sitter. But even then you can remove the locking collar and lower an extra 2".
Super heavy duty. The seat is HUGE! Seat is made of top quality material.
A bit pricey, but if you have back problems, this seat helps tremendously!

Great Throne but mine recently broke

By Sammy B

Ask me a question

Comments about ROC-N-SOC Original Saddle Drum Throne:

Overall this is a great Throne. It is the most comfortable one I've ever owned and I would definately by another one. I've play for 4 to 5 hours whith this without getting sore or stiff. Would definately reccomend this to anyone who wants to be comfortable and play better.
Easy adjustments for any height.
This is the only area where I have a minor complaint. The metal piece on the bottom of the seat broke at the weld where it connects the piece that fits onto the stand. I've had mine for about 5 years but I only play about once a week and way about 180 pounds. Roc-n-Soc sent me a new piece for a price. After looking at tier website it says all welds are guaranteed for life so not sure why the charged me for the broken part.
See above.

      This is a basic solid drum throne. No frills just good solid construction. This is my second Roc&Soc, one for each kit. I am still enjoying the first one I purchased over 10 years ago.

      Comments about ROC-N-SOC Original Saddle Drum Throne:

      Im not sure how to put in words the satisfaction i have gotten from this throne... It is truly the best seat in the house. I got this throne for christmas, and it is one of the best gifts i have ever recieved. This guy is like a brick with a cushion. Its very heavy but this is a good thing because its stable that way. Its super comfortable, stable, and adjustable. You can move any which way on it and the only thing that moves is the cushion in a circle so you can move to hit your kit easily. My highest recommendation, don't listen to anyone who thinks lower. A great investment.

                I have had one of these drum thrones for over 20 years and I finally bought another. (My first one is going strong.) These are just amazing, durable, adjustable thrones. Don't cheap out when you are buying the foundation of your drum kit. Get the best, get a Roc and Soc!

                  You will absolutely LOVE this throne. I went from an older, traditional round throne to this. The saddle style with the thick cushioning is fantastic. No more leg fatigue or nerve pinching in my upper hamstrings. I also feel like my legs have more mobility when playing the bass drum. You won't be sorry!

                    I am the drummer for a new Contemporary Christian Artist. We have started touring and I had the Pork Pie Round Drum Throne Black Sparkle with Red Crush Top and at the end of the concert my backside was numb. I switched to this throne and man what an amazing difference. I will never own a Pork Pie again! I am a Roc-N-Soc user for life. The Pork Pie Quality was good but really lacked in comfort. The build quality of this throne is amazing better than the Pork Pie. I can sit on this throne for hours and get up and not feel any kind of pain, numbness or soreness. Buy this throne and your drumming will never be the same!!!

I'm sure the tractor style seat isn't for everybody but, I've found it to be the most stable with the least compression. By the way, I've been in the business for a long time.
