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.

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.

    INAPPROPRIATELY ADVERTISED AS HEAVY DUTY

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

    I purchased this throne to round out a used set that I am selling. I feel misled since the throne is advertised as heavy duty. It implies that an adult can use it. A normal adult can barely get one cheek on the the tiny round, very thin, sit upon. This throne is a light duty throne for underfed elementary schoolers. I will be returning it.

    A little rickety but it works and the price is right. Great for beginners (like me), cheap skates (like me), or as a back-up.

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

    I needed a throne fast to go with my drum set I ordered , but didn't have much money left to throw at a expensive throne but this fit the bill.. its functional but after while the seat began to become uncomfortable, so taking breaks or walking help a lot, but I will be saving up for a better throne.....but still not bad if you need something to hold you down for practicing or backup.

    You get what you pay for.

    Pros

    • Decent Padding

    Cons

    • Difficult To Adjust

    Best Uses

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

      After sitting on this throne for a bit, it became ridiculously difficult to adjust. I had to use a wrench to pound (and I do mean pound!) out the bolt that secures the height adjustment. After that, I had to use the wrench and a considerable amount of elbow grease to move the adjusting pole. It took so much force that I physically marred the product.

      I gave it two stars because it does work. I recommend getting it adjusted properly immediately right from the get go so you never need adjust it again. At that point, you're good to go. Otherwise, get ready to impart some corporal punishment.
