Default Do You Need an Extra Drum Throne?

Could you use an extra drum throne? Do you sit low behind your drum set? Or, are you like me with short arms and legs? I saw this a few minutes ago in a Facebook ad with a short video. I love canister thrones. I had one custom made for me that has a heavily-padded seat. The top of the canister throne seat is 21 inches above the floor. I measured card table chairs, desk chairs, and dining room chairs to be in the range of 17.5 to 21 inches. Look at the video in this link. I was going to order one at the $39.99 plus tax and shipping until I checked if I could do better on Amazon Prime. BINGO! I ordered one for $20.00 plus a couple bucks tax and free shipping to arrive tomorrow. I would have ordered my first color choice--gray--for almost $40. But, black with a red top and base will work just fine at half the price.

The collapsable aspect of it alone is note worthy. Very neat!

Not bad for under 20 sucks...ugly as sin, though (imo)....but, hey, if it's functional and you dig it...

I'll be curious to read more after you try it out.

It might be great for the suitcase kits.

Yep. For the gigging drummer--when that comes back--it would make sense to keep one in the car just in case the drum throne has issues. It also has many other applications that more than justify spending twenty bucks.

Hey Mike. I made sure to read the full description to see if the collapsible stool is rated to support us beefier guys.

Cool Re: Do You Need an Extra Drum Throne?

Please give us your opinion after you try it out...The price is right for sure...I'm curious about the stability of it over time since it is made of plastic primarily...

Cheers

Will do. I'm already thinking about getting a faux sheepskin bicycle seat cover for the seat part.

I was on a camping trip last year and we crossed paths with a guy on a multi-day backpacking trip who brought one of these with him. I thought he was nuts to lug it along until I tried it out. I made a mental note to pick one up when I got home, and then completely forgot about it (that's they way most of my mental notes go).
Thanks for the reminder, I'm going to order one now.
