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.

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

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!

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

    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!

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

      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 used to sell a wide variety of thrones when I worked in a music store.To me by far, this is the best! 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.

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

                  Been using this throne for just a month and is a huge improvement from my low end throne. I couldn't afford to spend a couple hundred on a throne alone and found this one which I think is great and built very solid. Adjustment is easy and lets you move around while playing which is what I prefer instead of being locked into one position. No issues with bolts coming loose or anything yet! But we'll see after a few more months of torture. You feel more grounded and solid with this throne which helped me improve my double bass playing and center of balance. Fabric is very nice and good quality stitching, padding feels of good quality and my back has actually stopped hurting a bit after long gigs. For me this throne makes me sit up right a bit straighter than my old dingy one. I would recommend this throne, great investment and not too bad on the wallet.

                    I didn't buy this here, but what an incredible throne. Sitting on this throne is awesome. While playing, I can just keep going. This makes my legs, back and everything feel better and less fatigued.

                        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.
