Online

The Gibraltar 9608SFT "Softy" Drum Thrones features a 5" thick extra soft foam seat for maximum comfort. The softy drum throne allows for hours of playing without the discomfort of traditional drum thrones. An outer layer of plush courdura fabric adds to the comfort of the sitting surface.

The drum throne base features a die cast spindle style seat adjustment and double braced legs. The Gibraltar Super Foot adds to the stability of the tripod.

The legs and base are well engineered, and very solid...but the seat leaves a lot to be desired ---It's soft yes, but it compacts down pretty quick and you're basically left with a regular seat with a slightly squishy top. -Also, the diameter of the seat seems a little smaller than most others---and the suede-like cloth on the top seems to grip you and prevent your legs from moving laterally...uncomfortable and quite annoying when you're trying to quickly move your legs around to different pedals, etc. The pros and cons of drum thrones are a subjective topic, and a deeply personal one----your mileage may vary, but in my opinion this is a poorly executed design in terms of functionality and comfort, which is shame -- as every other piece of Gibraltar gear I've ever owned has been rock-solid.

I was trying a few thrones while in the store and after sitting on this one, I had to buy it. With the 4" thick pad and the softy top, it's the most comfortable throne to play on for a long gig.
