The La-Z-Boy Recliner of drum thrones!Just got mine yesterday. Beautifully and intelligently designed. The seat has plenty of cushion, yet firm support. The backrest is easily adjustable, tilting forward to hit in just the right place for comfortable back 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.....

Drum ThroneI 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 doubt you'll find something more secured than this. Feels like something that will last a lifetime for me. I'm 50 and just started playing again after a 30 year sabatical. 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.

Tama HT741I am a keyboard musician having to sit for hours on end. I have tried adjustable benches that were comfortable, but my back would get tired, so I tried seats with backs. This helped my back, but they weren't fully adjustable and only fairly comfortable.
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.

feels great to the back, very comfortable with the feeling of security underneath me with no chance of tipping over.The Tama HT741 could not have been a better choice for me. The back rest allows me to sit back and relax between songs and the design and security of the 4 legs definately gives me a good sense of knowing that I'm not going to slip or slide all over the floor. Could not be any more pleased.

Comfortable and Intelligent Design...Excellent 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 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!

Great ProductCan't say enough good about the design of the back rest (does not get on the way like some others)and the solid density of the seat. I have it down low and forward in the small of my back. What a difference!. Minor complaint is the weight. It weighs a ton. I think 3 legs as opposed to 4 would be a good option. Well built though.

Awesome Piece of FurnitureWould've received all stars, but I need it just a little lower. But I suppose that's not the chair's fault that I'm 5.4! Let's face it - I am a 272 pound female who needed a large stool to use for practice sessions and this one seemed to fit the bill. I purchased it from Sweetwater and could tell it was going to be a winner right out of the box. Sturdy construction, pricy look (for my living room/studio) and it really does help you sit up straight. I just had to tighten the take down screw, which is done by hand with a large knob under the chair, after having it over a month or two and giving it plenty of use. I seem to rock it back an forth quite a bit because it is a little tall for me, but I didn't see any others that came shorter and no one else should have this problem. Just noting it because aside from that I don't think it would have even needed any adjustments, speaking of which, the backrest is awesome! You can put it in just that right spot, up or down, front or back and it stays put! I have mine pretty high compared to the pic. Go for it. Always worth getting something of value that will last and add to your home decor!

Great Piece of FurnitureI purchased this throne to use for playing my guitars. The backrest is awesome. It is very sturdy and the seat is nice and wide. I am overweight and would recommend it for someone else in that situation. I also happen to be a female, so I carry it a bit low... and this stool takes care of my needs. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I need it to go a bit lower as I have majorly short legs. I will find a way to make my feet go a little higher. Note that it does help in a significant way with posture improvement.
