Post Who Uses A Drum Stool OR Damn Spent More money on gear
Well Ive been wanting a drum stool for a while. Since I have my big real gig tomorrow I thought Id pick it up . Ill practice sitting on the stool so its a t the same height as my practice chair. Ive done a few gigs(I use that loosely) where i sit down and the seat heights are inconsitent which screws up my playing as I always play sitting down. Who else uses a drum stool? Or can you play sitting on anything?

I usually practice sitting down, but play standing up using the belt hook, haha It's actually a lot easier to play "standing up" for me! Still, there's nothing better than a nice comfy chair...

I have a gig tonight, could be a real fricken disaster hahaha I'm doing a Satriani type thing, just me, my guitar and amp and an ipod into the PA... Hearing my backtracks is sometimes an issue haha Next week I have a Stick thing to do, I might sit down for that one as I'll just be background noise...

Anyways, good luck on your gig, man!

Gigging, what a concept :|. In my experience playing out, that being pro-bono, busking, jam sessions or for some remuneration 8-), the chair is sometimes a crucial piece of kit.

It sounds like your gig is one of those take up space occasions. No offense, I have done more of these two or three hour sessions than anything else. If money is important have your case open and ideally have some CD's on display :ugeek: And be forewarned, regular folks have no respect for music or musicians. :o Sorry, but it goes with the territory. People will come up right in the middle of what ever you are playing (no matter how good it is) and say "what is that thing" or "is that a sitar". Don't worry, you will have plenty of time to decide to ignore them or explain the history of 'The Stick', again ;)...

But the drum stool? These are great for drummers :P. And, in the studio I use one at the desk
because you can swivel around and pick things up without arms or a back to get in the way.
For gigging though I think that 'Thrones' are way too heavy and bulky to carry around. I have used folding auditorium chairs: https://www.target.com/p/vinyl-folding- ... lsrc=aw.ds
for a long time because unlike their all metal ancestors these chairs are warm, soft and comfortable. And they fold :roll:. They are light and easy to carry.

Take the long way home

I prefer piano benches, because I like to rest the belthook on the front of the chair, and the rounded front is not as good as the square front.

Jeez, that's a pretty good idea! I'm going to try that!

I always have one of those foldable piano benches in the car... just in case there are no suitable piano benches at the venue...

Hell yes! I had forgotten about that! And what's better is that it looks like the Stick mounts in such a way as to be "free" so that one wouldn't have to use the 'ole thumbs to support the thing! I know lots of guys just rest the Stick on their shoulder when seated, but I really need to access those lower notes... Too cool.
