Extremely Comfortable Throne for Serious PlayersThe TAMA HT741 Ergo-Rider Quartet with Backrest drum throne delivers ergonomic comfort and support. Finding a balance between the comfort of a round seat and the playability of a saddle-style seat, the HT741's front cutaway allows for unimpeded thigh movement - even during rapid double bass patterns. What's more, two patented seat indentations and an upper insert of soft foam encourage the right drumming posture. As for the base, there's a stable 4-leg tetrapod - and the backrest is height adjustable and tiltable, so you can comfortably adjust your TAMA HT742 Ergo-Rider Quartet with Backrest.
TAMA HT741 Ergo-Rider Quartet with Backrest Drum Throne at a Glance:
Ergo-Rider seat is both ergonomic and comfortable
In designing the HT741 Ergo-Rider Quartet with Backrest drum throne, TAMA wanted to strike the perfect balance between extremely ergonomic playing comfort while also making sure the throne didn't get in the way of serious playing. In the end, they developed the Ergo-Rider - a hybrid of a round seat and and a saddle seat. Its front cutaway allows for unimpeded thigh movement, even during rapid double bass patterns. The seat also features two gentle indentations and a 20mm upper foam insert, which encourages the right playing posture.
Sit Tight, Rocklok, and Quartet base ensure wobble-free playing
Wobbling drum thrones are just plain frustrating - that's why TAMA put three different designs into place to squelch potential wobbling before it ever affects your playing. To start, the HT741 Ergo-Rider Quartet with Backrest drum throne features a "Sit Tight" seat clamp, which securely grips the throne's upper rod with a durable die-cast aluminum clamp. Then, TAMA added their specially designed "Rocklok" nylon bushing at the bottom of the throne's threaded rod - this helps to prevent side-to-side motion within the base. And, finally, the base of the HT741 is TAMA's Quartet 4-leg model, delivering rock-solid stability during intense playing.
Adjustable back rest folds down for easy transportation
The HT741's comfortable backrest is both height adjustable and tiltable - so you can enjoy the support you need, no matter you prefer to sit. Plus, the backrest can fold down onto the seat itself, without requiring any disassembly, making it compact and easy to travel with.

The La-Z-Boy Recliner of drum thrones!
by B. Butler from TXJust got mine yesterday. Beautifully and intelligently designed. The seat has plenty of cushion, yet firm support.

It's not a lightweight; the hardware looks sturdy enough to take a pounding on the road. Perfect for long hours at the studio keyboard. For me, this was a godsend..... close [-]

by Craig Smith from TXI held back on giving a 5.0 only because that's the kind of guy I am. The throne works great, heavy duty, feels very sturdy and comfortable. I would recommend it to others.

I needed the back support and well worth the investment if I'm going to spend any time at all playing. Which I plan to do. close [-]

I read the reviews for the Tama HT471 and decided to spring for it, although it was more money, but would last for years. I am very happy I did. It is super comfortable, built like a tank, and infinitely adjustable to any desired height.. To top it all off, the seat lifts off, the backrest folds down, and the legs fold up. This makes it easy to pack and transport.
The best seat, by far, I have ever had, and shouldn't ever have to buy another. close [-]
feels great to the back, very comfortable with the feeling of security underneath me with no chance of tipping over.

Comfortable and Intelligent Design...
by Dave from Nashville, TNExcellent product, I love the leather and firm but comfortable cushion. I play professionally and often play 5-8 hrs per day. Now, with a backrest, I can save my posture. I also like how minimalist... read more [+] the backrest is. It is easy for travel and folds up quickly, but still provides the support needed. The lower section looks as if its built with military spec so I'm expecting this to be my last drum throne purchase for a long time, Thank you TAMA! close [-]
