    I play steel-string guitar in classical position, with left foot raised on a footstool, and needed a chair that wouldn't make my back sore. It's hard to find a truly flat chair at just the right height; most chairs slope backwards and that's a killer. I did a lot of internet research and it came down to either The Original Guitar Chair, or this Original Roc-N-Soc throne with the threaded height adjustment. I chose the throne because it can go down to 18", it's a lot less expensive, and it swivels which is good in a lot of situations.

    I was worried that it might rock around a lot, but it doesn't. It's solid, stable and comfortable. I can't say exactly why but it doesn't make my back ache after playing several hours. That was becoming a big issue with my old office chair. When you're sore, you just don't feel like playing.

    It's also reasonably portable, especially if you remove the threaded stopper on the height adjustment screw, which knocks more than 1 pound off the weight (seriously, I put it on the kitchen scale - 18oz). The only purpose of that stopper is to restrict the height to 20", which may be good for drummers but is too high for me (I'm 6' + 1/2").

    My only complaint is that it would be even better if it could go down to 17 or 17.5 inches. Then I could play barefoot and still have the right thigh either parallel to the floor or slightly higher at the knee, which helps keep the guitar from slipping forward. Tip: soft plastic bumpers applied at the contact points are also a great help.

    The product appears to be solidly made, and it is relatively comfortable to sit on. However, there doesn't seem to be any positive mechanism to prevent the seat from rotating. There are a couple of set screws that can be tightened to the limit of one's strengh, but neither of them has a positive engagement with any notch or other receptacle in the seat post, at least that I have found.

      Comments about ROC-N-SOC Original Saddle Drum Throne:

      Been using this throne for just a month and is a huge improvement from my low end throne. I couldn't afford to spend a couple hundred on a throne alone and found this one which I think is great and built very solid. Adjustment is easy and lets you move around while playing which is what I prefer instead of being locked into one position. No issues with bolts coming loose or anything yet! But we'll see after a few more months of torture. You feel more grounded and solid with this throne which helped me improve my double bass playing and center of balance. Fabric is very nice and good quality stitching, padding feels of good quality and my back has actually stopped hurting a bit after long gigs. For me this throne makes me sit up right a bit straighter than my old dingy one. I would recommend this throne, great investment and not too bad on the wallet.

        I didn't buy this here, but what an incredible throne. Sitting on this throne is awesome. While playing, I can just keep going. This makes my legs, back and everything feel better and less fatigued.

            This is a basic solid drum throne. No frills just good solid construction. This is my second Roc&Soc, one for each kit. I am still enjoying the first one I purchased over 10 years ago.

            As a "person of size" I wanted a seat that not only would hold my weight, but remain comfortable after several hours of playing. So far no more sore back or numb behind!

              It's a good seat.. A bit bigger than I've been used to but I'm getting to like it. It fits in the case with all the other gear. Nice and soft. First saddle seat so still getting used to that....definately different. Feels like i'm leaning forward.... Overall I think it's a good value throne for the money. I'm doin 2 to 3 nights a week so you gotta be comfortable right.

              Overall just a great seat, I use it for drums and when I'm playing other instruments.
              Easy to adjust and setup
              Very sturdy, I'm 6.5" 350lbs and I sit with confidence.
              Good price considering the quality you get, and you do get what you pay for!

              If your butt or back hurts, BUY THIS SEAT!

              By Scott Ross

              from Alabama

              Comments about ROC-N-SOC Original Saddle Drum Throne:

              I used to play on the standard round seat, and after a 4 hour gig, I could hardly walk. Back and butt would kill me! After getting this seat, played 2 nights in a row, both 5 hour gigs, and felt great! This thing is like a seat from a 1968 Cadillac! It's Huge, and soft (but not too soft). This seat would even be great for guitar players who need a break. HIGHLY recommended!............
              Great adjustments. The only negative is if you are a super low sitter. But even then you can remove the locking collar and lower an extra 2".
              Super heavy duty. The seat is HUGE! Seat is made of top quality material.
              A bit pricey, but if you have back problems, this seat helps tremendously!
