      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.

          This is my second Nitro Throne purchase for my second kit. The first one is still in service after 4 years and feels just like the day a bought it. It's true what they say about that it helps your back and legs. Great investment!

          I went from playing a piece of junk for like 5 years to this throne, and it's probably one of the best investments I've ever put into my kit.

          The hydraulic height adjustable is well worth the purchase. So easy. It's sturdy and lasts forever, BUT it's not what it used to be. The only thing that has held up, surprisingly is the hydraulics. The rubber feet have all broken after about a year. The legs stick terribly after about 6 months. It only took 6 months for the entire seat to wobble loudly as well. No tightening or adjustments help. The wobbling hinders my playing at times and the sound of it is extremely annoying and impossible to use in the studio. The back rest you can buy with it is TRASH by the way.

              Right out of the box it's quality. The chasis and legs are sturdy and the seat is very comfortable. The raised lip adds stability and makes it easier to balance exspecially for double bass playing. The fact that it allows some bounce is helpful to find the grove in the songs. Compared to round top thrones, this blows them out of the water. First bike seat however. Great product!

              I have been playing professionally for over 30 years. I am 54 and i have a bad back. If it weren't for this throne i would probably have to retire......seriously.
              I own 3 of these....what else can I say?!

                    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 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.
