      I am 6ft 190 This is a very nice item. Quite comfortable and as sturdy as could be. I like to set with my thighs at least parallel to the ground sometimes an inch or two higher. The Pork Pie can easily go higher OR lower if desired. I had Pearls version of this for the past 20+ years. It had covered my butt around the world and back. Probably have the Pork Pie even longer. Having said that, It's just a seat, don't over think it. If you buy something more expensive, it won't make you play any better dude.

      Bought this throne as my 'leave at home' throne intending to bring my Tama Wide Rider/cloth top to the practice studio and gigs. This one may look slightly cooler but it doesn't come close to the Tama for functionality. First, it doesn't have a locking nut on the post. Second, and more importantly, when seated you have to steady yourself with your feet as your weight is shifted forward, which I would imagine is a nightmare for balance when playing. I wouldn't know because I didn't even get that far, it felt so awkward I immediately disassembled it and repacked it for return. I went over and sat on my Tama throne and sure enough my weight was centered and balanced, not to mention the padding on the Tama is softer and you sort of settle in, whereas on the Pork Pie it feels like you're just sitting on top of it.

        Comments about Pork Pie Big Boy Bicycle Throne:

        I had been using the same throne for years, and it was of good quality, too, but I always felt like I had been sitting on a door knob by the end of the night. I saw this throne and thought I'd give it a try, and I'm so glad I did! It is big and very comfortable. If you are a small person, you may want to go with the standard size. The base is very solid and I have not noticed any wobble. I do plan on getting a back rest. Would have loved a red sparkle to match my vintage Ludwig kit, but it's not available, so got the silver sparkle with black swirl top, which is a beauty!

                I did some research online before buying the throne. I was interested in knowing if a back rest could be added to the throne. After reading many comments online and in drum forums I found that pork pie did not make a back rest attachment. I ordered the throne anyways after trying out a friends big boy throne. Most comfortable throne I have ever sat on. I received the throne 4 days after ordering (shipped to Canada). I grabbed my Tama 1st Chair and took the back rest off of it. Measured the holes on the Pork Pie throne, BINGO! It fits! I now own the most comfortable throne on the planet!

                Great Drummer Throne!

                By Joshua Phillips

                from Susanville, California

                Comments about Pork Pie Big Boy Bicycle Throne:

                I love the thick seat on this thing it allows me to practice for hours without the distraction of a sore butt. The clamps to lock everything in place are thick and built well, they should be plenty durable. Height adjustment on the seat is great, I'm 6' 4" tall and I found a comfortable setting that would probably feel too high for most players. If this throne ever wears out, or if I have a need to purchase a second I will definitely go with the same throne again or another from the same manufacturer.
                I can practice for hours on this throne, the cushioning is just right and the materials and construction seem like it will last a long time. From the legs to the beefy clamps and the fantastic seat you can tell this thing was built to be durable.
                I had a tough time justifying the cost, but even though I feel it was a little overpriced I'm still happy I purchased this model

                Comments about Pork Pie Big Boy Bicycle Throne:

                I love this throne! I had the really cheap, no padding very basic throne and could only play for about an hour or so until my legs fell asleep or my butt started to hurt.

                This has been one of my best investments so far. It is very comfy and has a large sitting area for larger people.

                I would definitely reccomend this throne for anyone that is a bigger person.

                Comments about Pork Pie Big Boy Bicycle Throne:

                I buy from, Musician's Friend, because, I can buy with confidence. The staff is very professional, courteous and helpful.

                For drummers, sit down conga players, sit down classical guitar players and even piano players, I highly recommend, Pork Pie Thrones. You can sit with comfort and play happy for hours.
                Very comfortable, stable and strong. Takes the tush pain away from playing!
                High density memory foam, heavy stand & legs. Made for the heavier guys & gals.
                For you people that have an issue with odor, as stated on prior reviews, all you have to do is spay it with a fabric protection, such as, Scotchguard, ext..., if you've already used & sweated it, clean it with, Woolite fabric cleaner spray, then spray it with a protective coating after its dry from the cleaning.
                Best out there!
                I sat on many thrones at shops and even wrote to the manufacturer reps. to get specs., being I was in the retail furniture business for a few years & having an inferior throne, I wanted to make sure I would invest my money properly this time. Pork Pie, was recommended to me by a drummer & sales person at one of the shops as the best & most comfortable & he's right!

                Well made, but not for smaller body types

                By Drumming Gal

                from Northwest

                Comments about Pork Pie Big Boy Bicycle Throne:

                Very well made product, heavy duty with an impressive variety of cool colors. I purchased this product looking for a "cushy" throne, and it is thick enough, but turned out to not be comfortable for my body type. I am 5' 7" but find the height adjustment doesn't go quite low enough and the seat is too large for my frame and puts me in an uncomfortable position. I am experiencing back issues that I never had in the past and will be replacing this throne with the Roc-N-Soc. I believe this product was designed for people with larger body types but would recommend smaller and/or shorter people steer clear.

                Comments about Pork Pie Big Boy Bicycle Throne:

                For years I used a Gibraltar seat. It served me well. After a few songs, I would always need to stand up to relieve the growing tension in the rear and legs. Brother and Sister drummers, you know that feeling. THERE'S A BETTER WAY,PEOPLE! This seat is soooo comfortable, I never feel like I need to stand up while playing anymore. BIG difference in comfort than a standard seat. It's nice and wide. Cushiony, but firm. Great swivel. The cherry on top is, it looks super smooth too. This has got to be one of the most comfortable drum thrones you can get.And if the earth's gravity has a stronger effect on you than say a smaller person (ha,ha), this seat will be like sitting on a funky little purple cloud.

                I never want to sit on anything else...

                By mellowknees

                from Oregon

                Comments about Pork Pie Big Boy Bicycle Throne:

                I am a beginning drummer. A big obstacle to me wanting to practice was the drum throne that came with my kit. It was small, too low, and entirely too hard for me to sit on comfortably. I bought the Pork Pie throne after reading that they are made for "the larger drummer". I got it last night, and WOW...it's as comfortable as my couch. It's definitely large enough to accommodate me (I'm six feet tall and quite large framed, so it's hard to find a throne that's comfortable), and it's got a nice seat that is firm enough to hold me in place while I drum, and yet soft enough that my tuchus doesn't get sore. I am really glad I bought it! Although the price is a little high, I think it's worth it. It's definitely a high quality throne.(Plus, holy cow - the purple velvet is completely and 100% pimpin'!)
