        I've had this throne for about 2 years. I sit on it every day, and I am constantly fiddling with height adjustments and what not. So far, I couldn't ask for a better seat for the price. The seat is comfortable, adjustable, durable (so far), and supportive. I have no complaints about this throne at all. That being said, its not as comfortable as one of those roc-n-soc seats, but they are significantly more expensive especially if you want a back rest (an absolute must for me). Some people really love the pork pie rounded thrones, but they arent for me. Too squishy and hard to get my balance just right. This seat is comfortable but firm which helps me stabilize myself easily. Overall, I don't think you will be disappointed.

        Well, I've owned one for about 5 years now. It may be short life span which has caused me to rate it so low, but there really isn't anything innovative about it let alone anything worth paying more than 70 bucks for. The back rest bends easily (again, keep in mind I'm a 5 year reviewer), cushion isn't flat, but it's not comfortable and the cardboard/plastic backing is starting to tear off. If you like freedom, you can expect to pick up bolts after a gig as they will wiggle out easily.Other then that, it's average and will get the job done if you can't afford a luxury seat.

          I purchased this product to use at home to play bass. It works great. I had a kitchen chair. What a difference. I can set it any way I want. Being able to spin around to use my peddles. Spin back if I want to change my amp. I love the comfort of the seat and the back!

            Comments about Gibraltar Drum Throne with Oversized Motorcycle Seat and Backrest:

            Getting back into drumming after a number of years I was looking for a comfortable seat to use with my new E-drum set. When I saw the words "oversized seat... and back rest" I knew I had found it. As with most Gibraltar products the quality is excellent. No out of box issues, and no problems after 2 months of heavy use. The one thing I didn't consider was the actual seat shape. Previously I had used only round seats, and being a drummer who likes to stand occasionally and moves around a good bit the round seat works because it doesn't matter where you sit on it. With the M/C seat however you have to pretty much stay in one place. Not that big of a problem in my older years, but younger drummers might consider it. Overall I still give five stars for quality, comfy seat, and nice backrest.

            Great Drum Throne....Period!

              Comments about Gibraltar Drum Throne with Oversized Motorcycle Seat and Backrest:

              I am a drummer, and I purchased this drum throne for my college-age son, also a drummer.

              This throne is great for several reasons. First off, it's very sturdy. But this is accomplished without it also being overly bulky or heavy. I've seen sturdy thrones that are a pain to fold up and heavy enough to be a pain to take on the road. Not this one.

              Secondly, it's a very comfortable throne. But comfort isn't about just having a soft seat to sit on. Experienced drummers know that a comfortable throne means less fatigue when you're playing for several hours. And less fatigue means better drumming. The tractor seat is cushioned with a firm, but thick layer of padding. I'm not a little guy, so that's important to me. You don't feel like you're sitting on a plywood board covered in vinyl. Then there's the back rest. It's also well padded, and is attached in a way that is very adjustable, and also very sturdy so you don't worry about leaning back.

              If you like to sit up high, for better toe action on the bass pedals, you'll like this throne. Some thrones only reach 22"-24". This one can extend to about 28". But it will also go as low as about anyone would ever need. The seat is mounted on a threaded shaft so height adjustment is made by turning the throne. In my opinion this is superior to the gas filled cylinders which will invariably fail sooner or later.

              I don't know yet how this throne will hold up over time. But based on what I see (in comparison with other thrones I've owned in my 40 years of drumming), this one should be with us for quite some time. In fact, now that I've seen it, I'm strongly considering one for myself as well.

                  Comments about Gibraltar Drum Throne with Oversized Motorcycle Seat and Backrest:

                  I purchased this for my office/music room, to replace a regular office chair (although no arms, the office chair was mediocre for guitar practice purposes). This is an ideal substitution since there are no wheels for shifting around... a rotational seat, but it stays in place. It's a bit harder on the butt, but it at least forces you up every 40 or so minutes to stretch the legs and release a bit of low back strain from hunching over a guitar practicing.

                  I purchased this on sale, but also used (slight damage or defect). The price was great for the quality of this product. One caveat... when buying used I specifically asked that the material or upholstery was NOT damaged, and the operator who assisted me said that it would not be the material, but likely some 'scuffing' on the rubber feet. That was not the case... when it arrived, the top edge of the back-rest had a rip in it... nothing too unsightly, but there nonetheless.

                          I am 6 foot 2 and weigh about 250 pounds and this chair is awesome. Compared to the little stool I was using before, it's like a couch. It's so nice to lean back in between songs or during slower beats and give my lower back a rest for a few crucial seconds. Very good quality. The feet on this thing are about the size of a horse's hoof, and the back is very sturdy and somewhat adjustable.
