Gibraltar

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.

        Comments about Gibraltar Softy Drum Throne:

        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.

                          Comments about Gibraltar Softy Drum Throne:

                          I bought this throne after almost 20 years on a heavy duty Gibraltar motorcycle style throne. My old throne was good, but I started to feel like the foam was getting compressed and not supporting me enough (my behind went numb by the end of the night). The old throne also had a strange memory lock thing for the height adjustment that would loosen up in my bag, causing the throne to be at a random height every time I took it out of the bag. I also got tired of having to look down to turn the throne the right way to sit on it, since it is uncomfortable to sit on a motorcycle throne the wrong way.

                          This new throne is super comfortable. The seat is extra padded and I feel like I am sitting on a very sturdy seat. I was surprised how big the feet are on this throne. The base is very heavy duty (almost too heavy) and it will not creep on you no matter what happens.

                          The only con that I can think of is that Gibraltar ships this throne with their standard height base, which means that the lowest setting actually feels much higher than a regular throne. I am 5' 6" so I have it on the lowest setting and I'm already thinking about shelling out for the short throne base just to be able to lower it down that extra couple of inches. This sucks because now I will have spent a total of almost $200 when I could have just bought another popular brand (initials are PP) of extra thick padded throne for only $150. Gibraltar needs to get on the ball and ship this thing with the short base to start with.
