I have had this throne for over a year, and it has held up AMAZINGLY! I have had large people on it, I play nearly every day, and it hold up great. The only problem is the thumb screw that keeps the seat from rotating lossens by itself, but some of you might like to have a little rotation. Really great for the price, especially learning drummers, and hobbyist. For active drummers on the road: try a more expensive, and more padded Pork Pie.

If you are a beginner and not sure drumming is for you, this is a great first throne to go with. It's cheap and fairly comfortable. However, if you decide drumming is for you, an upgrade will be in order. If you are an experienced drummer this is NOT the throne for you. While the legs are very sturdy, the seat is not. It swivels, which it's not supposed to do, way too much, and I could probably break it (at 150 lbs) without much effort.

    Good price for entry level db-braced legs; cushion is uncomfortably awful

    By Craig Smith

    from Elkhart, IN

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

    If you're a cheapskate and like the feel of sitting on the face end of a 4"x4" beam, then this is your throne. Seriously, the moment I sat on this cushion I knew I had to return it. I'll admit, the price was perfect--if I was only buying the lower half. Also, the cushion bracket had corrosion around it (not really sure what that was about). Yep, save an extra $30 and purchase either the 700 series or just wait a couple months and buy a DW tractor top or the Rok-N-Sok.

    Decent for the $$

    By Juan Camargo

    from Georgia

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

    Decent throne for the price. I found it too small for me, but it fit my tiny 8 year old perfectly (she was going to get it anyway). Hardware seems fairly solid, though I wonder about longevity (the frame under the seat seems to be pretty light aluminum or some such allow).

    Flimsy Junk

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

    Flimsy junk. You get what you pay for in this case. Wobbles all around. Hard to adjust height. Seat is very thin. Feels like it will break in no time. Don't waste your money.

    sturdy but that's it

    By Chrystal Dunmire

    from Greensburg, PA

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

    Can only sit on it for like 15 minutes before your behind falls asleep. I would recommend that you save your money for a more comfortable throne. Cheaper isn't always better in some instances. It's made nice, but would be so much better if it had a more cushioned seat. If you aren't going to sit for hours playing, then go ahead and purchase.

    Maybe should have spent a little more

    By Frank Han

    from Menlo Park, CA

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

    This throne seems sturdy, etc. However, the way the seat attaches to the post is just one thumbscrew directly into the post. As a result, it comes loose very easily and the seat isn't stable. I've stood up and had the seat fall off. If the seat would stay on the post, I would give this 4-5 stars for value and for doing the job.

    This is a great little seat, for the money you can not beat it. It works just fine and I would not spend any more for a home based setup.

    Good throne for not-too-crazy drumming.

    By Tom

    from Bloomingdale, IL

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

    The legs/stand are solid and sturdy, along with the height adjustable post. The only questionable item is the thumb screw used to attach the seat. It just screws into/against the post and holds in place via friction. Might be a better design if it screwed into a hole in the post.
