OVERVIEW

Go soft on your bum... so you can play hard.

Hard drum throne surfaces can be very uncomfortable and difficult to endure for extended periods of time. Without solid support and comfort, a drummer's style and creativity can be severely impaired.

Gibraltar's Softy Throne incorporates a top-grade 5"-thick cushion and an outer layer of plush Cordura fabric creating a soft and comfortable sitting surface. The Softy seat mounts on a double-braced tripod base with die-cast spindle height adjustment system and Gibraltar's Super Foot solid foundation rubber foot support.


Play in comfort. Order today.

    I'm an old key learning to play piano/keyboards; a couple of hours seated at the instrument was stressing my back & backside. The Gibraltar Softy Drum Throne has solved all problems for me.

    The Softy is extremely comfortable and stable, It is infinitely adjustable between approx. 20" to 28" height AND you can swivel or lock-in your perfect keyboard position. The padded top is terrific & won't cut off the circulation in the back of the legs. This is the perfect keyboard seating solution for me and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for anyone.
    Adjusts to 28" high, swivels, allows position-lock, portable, very stable legs with large, non-slip "feet" and the Gibraltar Softy has a wonderfully cushioned seat that will handle even heavy adults.
    Relatively light yet strong; very solidly contstructed.
    There are cheaper thrones but the Gibraltar Softy Drum Throne is maximum bang for the buck.

    Gibraltars quality is rock solid and I trust their equipment. But the softy is not soft, I weight 180 lbs and I don't put a dent in that thing. I own their Oversized Motorcycle Throne and its very soft and comfortable but bought this throne to tour with since its smaller but so far it's like sitting on a brick with cloth on it.

                This is the Second Big Softy throne i've purchased .... I'm a big guy, 6 ft, 300 lbs. I play out locally most weekends. My throne gets a lot of hours on it. After two years and the need for a student throne in my lesson studio, I bought a new one. In comparison, the first throne had not lost much of it's comfort. I've played Roc-n-Soc, Pork Pie, Tama and some others over the years. This is a rock solid and comfortable throne ..... and at a cost MUCH lower than others

                    Comments about Gibraltar Softy Drum Throne:

                    After reading several reviews before deciding on the softy I will agree that it takes a lot of pressure off of the butt, back rest not needed unless you really want it. Sat through a 5 hour practice session with breaks and no butt issues. Good height, sturdy feet and swivels a little bit to give some room when moving around the drum set. last but not least I am a big guy 5ft 11in 250lbs and it supports me!

                    Being on the heavy side, I really appreciate how sturdy this throne is and how it can handle my weight easily, without problems. Also, find it easier to adjust than other thrones I have owned.
