        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.

            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.

                I play Smallpipes. I was also a set drummer, so I know what comfort means. This throne is a well made and easy to set up/break down.

                    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.

                          for the money this seat works fine. Not as comfy as a $$$ throne, if that's what you're looking for you'll have to spend $$$. I was looking for a lightweight throne for easier portability that won't collapse on me and this does the job. It is a little loose feeling, but for me that's an acceptable trade-off.

                            I'd needed a space-saving, swiveling drum throne for playing and recording guitar and keyboard in my cramped home studio. For the price, this hit the spot. The first thing I noticed about it was that the hardware was much more substantial, and sturdier, than the price would have led me to expect. The rubber feet are also good-quality. The only complaint I have is that the seat could be considered insufficiently-padded, but its firmness lets the throne double as a nifty little drink table (no joke). I cannot say how this throne would suffice for playing drums, but for my purposes, it's great.

                                I bought this throne to go along with a jr kit for my 5 year old. She is tall for her age and has long legs, but even on the lowest setting, it's a stretch for her to be able to reach the pedal. That's the only drawback. I thought that because it was shown as an "accessory" with the Jr set, that it was suitable for kids.
