First of all apologies as i know very little to bugger all about drums etc - however i’m looking to buy my father a new “throne” for xmas.
My dad has kitted himself out with plenty of kit but has the crappest seat ever & as its only been in the past year or so picked up his sticks again after a good 20yrs & is now practicing regularly + reformed the old band - given he’s in his, well, half century plus years Thought best get him something comfy to sit on.
I’ve done some research so far, but finding a bit tough to get reviews & top 10’s etc for drum stools/seats (or thrones as i’m learning they are called).
So far i’ve come across “roc’n'soc & “Pork Pie” but are out of my price range.
I’ve also come across - Tama first chair HT530 - this is more in my price range & seems to get good reviews, also there seems to be a back rest which he could buy later on for extra comfort.
Apart from that the only other one thats caught my eye is the Gibralter 9608VA - as he continually looks for places to keep his drinks, spare sticks etc - so this could be ideal, but a bit worried its more a gimic than a comfy & sturdy place to sit.
Any advice is much appreciated - or pointers in the right directions as to where i can find out more
