The Gibraltar Universal Back Rest is an awesome product! I had lower back surgery in 2010 and have since had difficulty playing drums for longer than an hour without my lower back hurting. Being able to lean back during performances has made playing fun once again. You will not be disappointed, even if your back is healthy.

This back rest looks nice, feels nice, but if you lean back, or put more than a few pounds stress, it bends at the curve. Takes very little pressure to bend it back in place but the same thing will happen again. Pity really...looks stronger than it is. I'm taking mine to a welder to have beefed up and rechromed.

Comments about Gibraltar Universal Drum Throne Back Rest Attachment:

I bought this for a church gig and it has worked out pretty well. I mean this isn't the Tama back rest where you can adjust it forward, but it's nice to lean back in between songs. I'm 6 feet and weigh about 210lbs and its hold us pretty well. I can't lean back too heavily, but it does work well when I'm not playing and can lean back in comfort. Every now and then you might have to bend it back forward, but it's not bad. Just for the record I have mine on and old brown vinyl Tama round thrown.

      Comments about Gibraltar Universal Drum Throne Back Rest Attachment:

      Every throne should have this attachment. It attaches easily to an existing, solid throne tube at any point, allowing for further height adjustment.
      I wish the backrest had a bit of movement as many drafting chair backs do but it's easier to gig with than a drafting chair!

                      I am not as young as I use to be and my back was bothering me after playing. I needed some back support and was thinking of replacing a perfectly good throne. I was looking at new thrones with back rests when I saw this. I tried it, it saved me money, it works well and was easy to install. What else can be said. I saw it at lower price and MF more than matched the price. A good purchase.

                        Good value
                        Good attachment. Just be careful where you attach it to. Some drum thrones have cheap metal work, like mine, and it bent one evening as I leaned back. Attach it to a stronger part of the "stem".

                        Comments about Gibraltar Universal Drum Throne Back Rest Attachment:

                        The backrest attachment is simple, robust, and looks good on my Tama 1st Chair throne, which I purchased at least 15 years ago. It provides a nice upgrade for an existing, high quality drum throne which doesn't need to be replaced. Although I found that it was a little bit pricey, I am happy with the product and don't feel that it was waaay to overpriced. I have only had the backrest for a couple of weeks and have not used it in a live setting. I'm hoping that it will be as sturdy as my drum throne, and last for a long, long time!
                        The parts are simple and solid, and it adjusts in height. One thing that is not completely worked out is that the distance of the backrest from the chair can't be adjusted any closer, but I haven't found this to be a major problem, although, it might be nice, on certain ocaissions, if that were possible.
                        Sturdy build, attaches to the seat post well, non-damaging, and yet, flexible when you lean on it. I don't know how much weight it can withstand tho, I am not very heavy myself.
                        I think its a good value, considering the quaility, but, I do think that it is a bit too expensive. I would have been happier to pay $45 instead of $60.

                        Gibraltar universal throne back rest

                        Comments about Gibraltar Universal Drum Throne Back Rest Attachment:

                        It didn't occur to me beforehand, but maybe it should have: this backrest has changed my style, and for the better, i think. I feel that my footwork is lighter and quicker, and that i am distributing my stickwork over more of the kit.
                        the universality of this thing is very useful to me, as it fits both my practice throne and my gig throne. when i think about it, though, i'll probably buy another one for the other throne.
                        Strong enough for me. I am 6 foot 1 inch, weigh about 185 and feel very well supported.
                        For me, with back troubles and long dance gigs, this thing is invaluable.
