The best performance starts at the core.
Tama’s 1st Chair drum thrones were designed with core comfort in mind. Several new features have been developed in order to increase stabilization of the throne, and thereby the core, for maximum comfort and enhanced performance. From extra large rubber feet and significantly more stable legs to the upgraded “Seat Lock” seat holder and the extra smooth “Glide Tite Grip Joint”, the 1st chair thrones were reimagined from the ground up.
Also, by lowering the distance of the center throne pipe to the floor, Tama lowered the center of gravity for better stability and overall playing comfort. With these significant improvements, drummers can think less about physical stress or fatigue, and more about the music.
The extra large Round Rider XL seat provides the same classic shape with a wider surface area and a thicker seat.
A Glide-Tite Grip Joint allows for a more secure attachment by using a metal-to-metal contact point. It is an extremely solid base attachment, even for the heaviest hitters.
Seat Lock is a great design that utilizes two-piece locking hinge collar system for superior throne base to seat connection and oversized wing nut for easy and secure tightening. Tama removed the "wobble" which can typically affect the seat to throne base connection.
By lowering the distance of the center throne pipe to the floor, a lower center of gravity was achieved. Additional stability improved by lengthening the tripod leg stabilizer bar and designing double-braced tripod legs that do not taper at the point they insert into the rubber feet.
The Round Rider XL Seat supports diverse playing styles and provide the maximum in playing comfort, Tama developed the extra large and super-padded Round Rider seat top.

Comments about TAMA 1st Chair Round Rider XL Drum Throne:
I've used a couple dozen different thrones over the past 30+ years and this one is by far the best one. It's even a step up from the previous Tama 1st Chair models. The seat is large and very firm. After trying 4-5 manufacturer's variations on the bycyle-style seat, a round seat is the most comfortable (with proper posture) for me. I liked some hydraulic models for ease of adjustability while sitting down, but most would bounce when playing and mechanically fail after a few years. The Tama threaded height adjustment is rock solid, doesn't bounce or sway, and coupled with the round seat makes fine height adjustments even easier than hydraulic versions. The rubber feet are designed so the metal legs won't wear through them. This is a common problem and is practically guaranteed on typical backline/rehearsal space equipment. It will never happen on this throne. The legs fold up very smoothly. The seat also attaches to the rod easily and is secure with only one wing nut. The seat does not wobble or creak. This red bottom to the seat is a nice aesthetic touch. I can't imagine how a throne could be made better or last longer.
