    Default Drum thrones

    Just curious how many of you use a drum throne with a backrest?
    My wife says I am no longer permitted to buy any more drums...I said okay you cant buy any more shoes...we are presently at an impasse! I see drums...she sees shoes!

    Just added one to my Roc-n-Soc hydraulic. Took a little adjusting to get used to it, but I find it to be a very helpful addition.

    Iíve been using a backrest for about 15 years. I can play longer without any back pain and it promotes good posture. It takes a little time to dial it in to where it feels good. Itís kind of like getting a new car with lumbar support. You have to adjust it back - forth, and up-down. But once itís set, it will feel so good. On some songs where you have to lean into your drums, the backrest doesnít do much, but on so many others, it feels great.
    If youíre in a bar or restaurant and they have stools with and without backrests, which would you choose?

    Roc-N-Soc Nitro with backrest for me. Even if you aren't riding the backrest while playing, giving your back a rest between songs during a long night can be really helpful. Just make sure to keep a leg behind you and don't lean back too far!

    Does a back rest help your posture? I swear by rock n soc saddle drum thrones and will never use anything else but I notice you can get an add on back rest. My posture is admittedly poor ie slouching. I have wanted to work on this for some time now and if a back rest helps you not round your lower back or slouch over it might be worth the investment.

    I don't know how much I actually use my backrest while playing, but I prefer having it there.

    I'll also add that the rotating and up and down movement of the Nitro Rock N Soc is important to me too.
    I recently played on my old Gibraltar Moto throne, which is basically the same but with the threaded spindle height adjustment,
    and it was much more fatiguing.

    It definitely helps mine. I used to slouch at times just to have a change of position. Now it feels so much better to have something padded and comfy to lean against. I have two Pearl thrones. I think they’re model D1000. Both came with round seats but when I noticed that they were contributing to my sciatica pain I switched to the Roc n soc saddle seats on both. They are sturdy, well padded and comfy. Add a backrest and it’s drum furniture .
    There have been many discussions on this forum about backrests. Most if not all agreed that it helped their posture and wished they had started to use a backrest sooner. Next thrones will be nitro models.
