So on a short budget, and a desperate need for a new throne, this little baby came into my life. Its not a bad throne, by any stretch if the imagination. Its got some decent locking features, and some rather heavy duty construction.My only issue with this throne is simple, it tips forward just slightly. Thats pretty much it.Other than that, I'm a fan. The pad itself is amazingly confy. It allows a lot of comfort for double bass usage, and it has a very small bit of rebound when you get into a pretty heavy double bass ryhthm.All in all, a great value, a meduim level throne, and most certainly worth every penny.
