Things to consider

  • Budget - remember that you are investing in your posture and ability to sustain play for long periods of time, so get the best stool that you can afford
  • Beginner or advanced - if you’re just starting out then you may want to take your time trying out new seats and figuring out what is the best fit for you. The more advanced player will have a better understanding of what suits them and may be more willing to invest in a higher priced throne
  • Height - your knees should be bent at between 90 and 100-degree angles for correct posture
  • Time spent playing - if you play for significant periods of time, then you may benefit from investing in a drum throne that features a backrest for additional support. If you only play for a few minutes a day, then extra padding and rests may not be as beneficial
  • Stability - no drummer wants to slide around and adjust position mid performance. Ensure feet are robust, preferably with rubber feet to ensure lack of manoeuvrability on floor surfaces
  • Movement preference - whether you like some spin movement in your seat or prefer complete stability and lack of movement, ensure you select a throne that will move with you or lock out any movement accordingly
  • Portability - for the gigging drummer, portability is a key consideration. Ensure that the feet and all other mechanism on the stool can be collapsed down for ease of packing and transport
