        A nice seat, a little shaky but overall it's alright if your just looking for a seat to get.
        The seat is just the right size for me, I am 13 and about 120 lbs. The seat is pretty supporting.
        The seat is a little shaky, even if you tighten it all the way and one of the legs came a little loose for me, but overall its nice.
        It seems like a good deal, although, I would recommend getting a better one if your a heavier/older person, as it will work better for kids/lightweight people.

        This product provides an inexpensive, entry level quality drum throne, but not much else. When I first got this 18 months ago, the first thing I noticed is the bolt that attaches the seat to the downtube does not have a hole, it just rubs against the downtube which causes the seat to move around and squeak while playing, but it can be partially resolved by tightening it very tight with a pair of pliers. The seat itself has very thin padding and is not comfortable to sit on for more than 20 minutes at a time, less when I'm doing double bass, though the leather covering is relatively durable. The legs will not retain their setting unless you tighten that bolt with a pliers as well, but otherwise are of average stability. The downtube only has three adjustment holes and may not be able to adjust quite high enough, I know it wasn't quite enough for me, and before I got the chance to add another hole with a drill, the downtube snapped in half at the middle adjustment hole today. And that is the end of my experience with this product. Don't buy this unless you have less than the forty or more quid that it would take to purchase a higher quality throne. Save your buttocks, lower back, and legs a lot of pain.

          Comments about Universal Percussion UP197 Round Double-Braced Drum Throne:

          I've been teaching students to play drums for decades. Many times when I give lessons in their homes, I notice their drum thrones are either broken, or very poor quality (sometimes a cooler and a pillow). So I feel responsible to get them a good throne for all the right reasons, posture, stability, comfort to play longer, and practice more. This drum throne has it all, strength and stability at a great price... I can donate it without going broke. Everybody wins...I get a quality throne to sit on when I visit them, they get a good throne to keep and take care of, and the parents are happy for the donation. A great throne for a beginner, or as a backup throne for practicing...Highly recommended.

              Great for my 7 year old daughter to use for watching TV. The drum set I ordered from Musicians Friend has been backordered and re backordered and backordered again. Hopefully they will be here in time for her 8th birthday.

                      I have owned several of these thrones, they are great quality, sturdy, and affordable. Obviously, there are more comfortable thrones made but you will pay 5 times more for those. I buy these for my students to use at lessons and have never had a complaint. I will continue to buy these thrones, get one.

                            You are getting what you pay for. It is cheap because it is low quality. I am a high school teacher and bought it for simple use at a drum set. Both thrones I bought fell apart within the first month.

                              I have three teenagers who love RB3 as much as I do. On a typical weekend night we usually have 5-8 playing or singing. This throne has held up to everything we have thrown at it. I agree with the other review that lists it as a "nifty" place to put your drink, and it makes a great foot rest when your kicking back between gigs. Thanks Musician's Friend, another great purchase. You guys rock.

                                    purchased for my teenager to practice his drums. Main concern for me is that the legs dont mark up the floor and this throne has great rubber ends that Im happy with. Also sturdy enough so it supports his 165 lbs without tipping over, and folds nicely for transport.
