About Drum Stools / Thrones

Drum stools and thrones are an essential factor in making you feel relaxed and confident while playing. They need to be sturdy, adjustable and comfortable.

There are two types of drum stools: a drum throne with a round, flat seat and thrones with a motorbike saddle-style seat. There’s no right or wrong choice between them, it all depends on personal preference. You can also get drum thrones with a backrest if you need lower back support while playing. How sturdy the drum throne is depends on the bracing. Single-braced drum thrones are affordable but more likely to collapse whereas double-braced drum thrones are much more reliable.

Why Should I Choose a Drum Stool / Throne?

  • Relaxed and confident playing
  • Plenty of choice for comfort
  • Drum stools are adjustable
