This is not a drum stool.

Its a THRONE.

This piece of gear is WHY its not called a drum stool- about an inch to an inch and a half of padding is enough for even the heftiest of hitters. The double braced tripod design is amazingly sturdy and the nitro adjustability is amazing.

Just one touch on the pneumatic lever and up you glide (or down for that matter) to your preferred seat height. There has never been a more adjustable and ergonomic throne.

The bicycle seat with the raised ridge in the back is very comfortable- but the 'bottle nose' in the front can stick up in a most uncomfortable way for some males sitting close to the front of the seat. (I personally performed a 'nose-ectomy on mine by pulling back the fabric and foam and cutting off part of the supporting material, then stitching it back together).

My only other gripe about this throne is its slightly ineffective compactability. The seat detaches from its tripod base via two nuts at the base of the seat, which both require a wrench for tightening and loosening. If you're not the kind who usually breaks down your throne this is not a problem, but if you're like me and have to break EVERYTHING down than this can cause a slight problem- although if you're a conga or bongo player the same hex wrench that you need to turn your lugs will fit the nuts on the Roc'n'Soc).

Another way of neutralizing this otherwise annoying point is to always carry around a wrench in your gig bag. Because my wrench kept falling out of my gig bag however, I eventually just made a holder out of two straps of backpack strap that I screwed into the supportive material on the bottom of the seat that hold my wrench nicely so that break down and set up are a snap.

This is easily the most comfortable and ergonomic drum throne I have ever sat on. Match that with unparalleled adjustability and, despite minor overcomable gripes, this is easily the best throne on the market.
