I have had this throne for about 6 months now, and I love it. It is super comfortable. This throne is not cheap or lightweight in any way. It is heavy duty, and for bigger guys. If you have the money get it, it will be the last throne you will buy. The only thing is, it is meant for studio use, but you can tour with too, but it is not very portable. It is HEAVY, but you feel like a King when you are behind your kit sitting on this throne. I like the freeing feeling, and it is super adjustable. It goes really high, and super low from the touch of a lever! Fantastic product. The one thing drummers overlook is the throne, and being comfortable when playing. DW made this product for comfortability, so you should try it out.
This throne is rock solid and comfortable. The fourth leg can be troublesome. The top DOES come off. Maybe the earlier models didn't but mine does. It swivels smoothly, which I like. It's VERY heavy and I keep it in the studio now. If you tote your own gear this is not the throne for you. If you want a solid steady air lift throne in the studio this is for you.
When I first saw this seat, I must admit I laughed at the size and thought it was completely ridiculous. However, the second I sat down in it I completely changed my tone. It is by far the most comfortable throne I've ever sat on. It might not be as soft as the roc-n-soc but its design makes for a very good overall feel. Plus its the only hydraulic seat I've found that isn't made of fabric. While fabric might be a little more comfortable, anyone who tours or just plays a lot is going to sweat quite a bit. Call me crazy but I don't want a seat that's not at least a little resistant to sweat.
I upgraded my throne from a basic Tama throne that came with my Tama Rockstar Custom kit, and what a difference this throne makes. I bought the Round version & I sit on this throne for hours on end. I feel no discomfort whatsoever. With my old Tama throne, it would be wobbly and I wouldn't feel any stability at all. With this throne I can spin around, move left to right and do just about anything and the throne feels secure. There are 2 cons though with this throne. 1.) It does not go low enough. 2.) The Top seat does not come off, so putting it in your Road case is useless because it won't fit. Other than the 2 cons, I believe this is one of the best thrones I have ever sat on. I tested all of the other thrones out in the store as well, Pork Pie, Pearl, Tama, Roc N Soc, and all of them felt wobbly to me where as the DW Airlift felt really secure...Don't take my word for it, go in the store and try em out and you'll see what I'm talking about
i am a working musician who spends many hrs a day sitting down behind my drums and this is built like a tank!. butt-hehe if you are looking for comfort forget it, this is the worst seat i think you could waste your money on! if you like pain and numbness in the butt well this is the seat for you!
