    I'd been eyeballing this chair for more than a year, just didn't buy it because I'd just bought a Carmichael Throne a couple of years earlier, and was trying to get some mileage out of it. But even though The Carmichael was supposed to be good for the prostrate, I didn't have prostrate troubles. I had back troubles. Finally, after quibbling about it for another 6 months, and letting some of the other reviews deter me, such as a squeaky noise (that I thought some graphite oil or W4D would cure anyway), I went ahead and bought the Nitro Rock N Sock. I haven't had an ounce of back pain since I bought it! I like the "give" it offers in its hydraulics, and the seat itself also offers some give in its comfortable cushion. I have yet to walk up the stairs with severe neck and back pain, like I did with the other 2 stools. And if it did squeak (which it hasn't so far) -- I'd rather have a squeak you can oil, than back pain any day. I just wished I would've bought it sooner. But now I know! (And another reason I decided to just go ahead and get it, is because, if the hydraulic lift ever wears out, the seat is compatible with the Carmichael legs!) Definitely the nicest chair I've ever sat on -- and I sit for 4-5 hours at a time!

    I like everything about this throne but it's not for me. Unfortunately, it wasted my back in less than a month. I could not get comfortable and I really tried. I started to get really bad lower back pain and I'm now on my 5th chiropractor appt to ease the pain. For me, it was impossible to find a sweet spot. With a round throne you can kind of go where you need to be. With a tractor style seat you are in a set position. Also the leg cutouts are non-existent so if you sit high it's hard for your knees to be lower than your hips. With the ridge in the back, you better like where you're sitting because there's nowhere to move. A highly rated best seller and it will probably work for 90% of the players out there but there is a small percentage of drummers that this throne, or this style of throne, won't work for. And if you're squirming around trying to get comfortable, you can do some damage. Just take a bit of time in the shop and make sure it will work for you. If not, keep your receipt.

          The gas shock absorber extends upward when throne is not in use. Don't know if this is by design but it really sucks to have to re-adjust EVERYTIME!! VERY INCONVENIENT!!

            This is a good drum throne. Setup is simple - hydraulic lift has a good range - frame is sturdy and durable. I actually selected a different throne initially but it was not available so I went with this one - glad that I did!

            Great throne, not so reliability

                  Comments about ROC-N-SOC Nitro Throne:

                  Great looking, functional, and very comfortable throne with INSTANTLY adjustable height. The last characteristic is especially handy to me, because I sit higher behind electronic drums at home, lower behind acoustic drums at practice place, and "all over the place" behind practice pad (higher for marching-type stroke exercises and lower otherwise).

                  The seat itself is easily detached from throne stand, and the latter easily folds for transportation. And need I say this throne saves the night when we have more guests for dinner occasion than chairs at the table ;)

                  BUT!!!!, within days from arrival I had to return it to MF for exchange, because the gas cylinder in the stand was constantly deflating, thus annoyingly lowering me from the desired height. This problem, however, has plagued me with several office chairs of hydraulic type. So I think this is the inherent problem of hydraulic chairs. Kudos to MF for very swift exchange; within days I had a new throne of the same model, which to this day has been very solid. If the problem recurs beyond warranty, replacement gas cylinders are sold online.

                      The Roc N Soc gas lift throne is a very solid throne, the gas lift is very convenient and easy to use. it swivels very smoothly and has a very comfortable seat which is aided by the bounce of the gas lift. It is an excellent choice for any drummer or just about any seated instrument for that matter. I am very pleased with this product; it is worth the money.

                        Purchased as a gift for twelve year old granddaughter ... she is HAPPY! My message here is really about the shopping experience; this well may be the one of the best online merchandisers on the internet. If you need musical equipment, shop here first; you will not likely go elsewhere.

                            Most sturdy and comfortable throne I have ever sat on. It takes all the pressure off your spine and lower back. Absolutely remarkable.

                                This throne is great. Very soft and comfortabale. This is my first throne (being a new drummer) and I don't think I could have chosen a better one. I am big (245 lbs) and it takes my weight without any problems at all.
