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

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

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

By 1327510

from New York, NY

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

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

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.

Very good for the money!

By Filip Szalewicz

from Macomb, MI

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

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.

Don't Bother

By TAWB

from Takoma Park, MD

This is great for beginners I guess, But you are much better off spending an extra $5-20 on a far superior throne. I'm a tall drummer; 6'7", so I have the throne up high and the screw always comes slightly loose and the seat slides down making it awkward to play. Also there are only about 5 Hight settings, not versatile at all. The seat is comfortable enough to play for extended time, but again you could spend another $5 for a throne with a better seat. Don't bother with this unless your going to use it to put next to a practice pad. or give it to a guitarist to sit on. Don't be cheap, spend another $5.

Gets the job done. Thats about it.

By Diego

from Newark, CA

I think it is way overpriced. It gets the job done, and that is about it. The reviews hyped it up more than they should have. It is good for a temporary throne or a practice throne. I would hardly call it a throne, more like a seat.
