What can I get for $150 ballpark? Something that rolls around would be nice but not a requirement.

Any experience to share?

I use a Tama Ergorider drum chair. It has a back rest that provides good support for the lower back.

New, these will bust your budget. Y

ou can find 'em used for about $100 or so.

I have gone around on this a bunch.

At home I have a nice firm high back low seat armless chair in my music corner that really works nice. But it was probably more than $150. However i have had it for 10 years an it's still like new.

I have been doing rehearsals with a new band at a mate's house who is primarily a drummer. I find the high quality drum thrones are really comfortable.

However I'm not so sure about the wheels part. I think I would prefer it to be stable. I like to rest one foot higher than the other and if the chair had wheels I would be pushing myself around.

If you want to go cheap but comfy, check out office/desk chairs.

Not the thickly padded, high-backed upholstered ones--but the type for use at a workstation, designed for upright sitting at a computer.

This type of chair generally has adjustable height and usually has arm rests that are removable.

Such as this

In terms of office chairs I prefer the simple "secretary" chair. Like Peegoo's pic above except no armrests to get in the way.

Yeah, different names for office-type chairs, but the smaller and generally less expensive styles are most often grouped within “task chairs.”

I’ve done lot of shopping for these, since my desk’s chair opening is only 19.7 inches wide. Except for the very cheapest models, they often come with arms. Be sure the arms are *only* attached to the underside of the seat; you simply leave these off when you assemble it.

Everybody sells these less expensive chairs; seen them at Walmart, Big Lots. Here’s search results at Office Depot.

Yeah, the cheaper they are, the harder they are on your butt.

I’ve had one of these for a few years. It works well and you can put your leg up.

If you do go with a task chair, get one with a fairly narrow (width) back rest. The larger, wider ones that wrap around tend to get in the way of your elbows when sitting upright while playing.

Wow, that is a nice stool sample!


"Boss Office Products B245-BK Be Well Medical Spa Stool with Back in Black."

Great for playing AC/DC, I take it.

An office chair with flip-up arm rests is the way to go. I forget what I paid for ours, but I doubt it was all that expensive.

I use a hydraulic drum stool

I bought this prior to my hip replacement when I could no longer stand at practice or gigs

2 years since my hip replacement it still sits in from of my rig and a sit down often

One of these should do the job

Decided on a Doctors chair, Peegoo mentioned a Stool sample and my mind went into action! They are small, have no arm rests and roll around.

I have been using an old foldable metal chair from the 40's with a thick memory foam cushion on it and since my surgery I have had to endure it, it is not good. Been getting better daily but still get little sleep...

I have been working hard on my guitar skills and the only reason I have to take breaks is the chair discomfort. Thank you for the assistance and ideas.

I have an old oak secretary's chair (swivel, no arms) that I've removed the casters from to make it lower. I place it in the middle of my practice room, surrounded by my semi-circle of amps. Works great for me, and has a spring-loaded recline for when I just want to lean back a bit.

I have a padded folding chair and it works fine as I can carry it to the john with my Fly 3. Or out on my lanai etc. But I am surprised no one recommended this accessory.

Probably you're young and as agile as a giraffe and don't need it but for me this is a necessity.

I personally like a tall "drafting stool" with a back cushion, no arms, and a foot rest ring, like...

...this.
