GD6 Great Drum Throne

By: on 27 June 2022
Upon receiving the drum throne, I was pleasantly surprised how solid the GD6 drum throne is (it appeared a lot lighter in advert picture). I have arthritis in my lower neck and upper back and have experienced pain when playing drums for some years now. I have had no pain playing drums using the GD6 throne. I am very pleased with it and would recommend it to all drummers. Also very appreciative of the very low price without compromising quality as appears to be the case with all Artist Guitars products. Thank you Artist Guitars.

Good value ... but with limitations

By: on 10 April 2022
First the good: incredible value for money really. If you're wanting to try a saddle throne and/or backrest, this is a great place to start. It's well-built. The seat is firm, but comfy. I've spent hours on this chair over the last couple of months. No more numb bum or tingly toes like I had with my previous "name brand" throne of equal cost. Having a seat back was a revelation for me, I'm hooked. The not so good: it's big, it's bulky, I find it hard to fit in amongst my other hardware. My practice space is a bit constrained which doesn't help, but I hadn't appreciated when I ordered it just how much more room it would take up compared to my other throne. The bad: it wobbles - a lot! There's no memory lock which would also serve to stabilise it. There's also no way to stop it swivelling under you as you play. Some drummers like that, I don't. I want my stool to stay in place. Artist Guitars, I really really recommend that you add a memory lock to this stool and/or sort out the wobbles.

Value for money

By: on 25 December 2021
My wife bought me this for christmas and i must say this stool is amazing, very sturdy base with a nice big thick cusion that is very comfortable and as i have back issues and naturally slouch when im playing the drums i really wanted a new drum stool with a back rest but other brands were selling similar seats for double of not triple the price, this is truly value for money, easy to set up and the back reast adjusts to any angle as well as folds down with ease for easy storage, would definitely recommend this product

bad chair. it broke.

By: on 23 September 2021
I order my chair and was very happy and after building it i set it up infront of my drum kit and then i sat on it and then it broke. The metal in the chair bent, causing me to fall over backwards, breaking the back rest, which is why i bought the chair. This chair is obviously not meant for people of my gargantuan size, and not i will go back to sitting on my living room couch.

Best stool i have ever had, have back issues and this allows me to play for hours.

Great value!

Had mine for a while now-unfortunately the cast lug under the seat cracked off (lucky not during a gig!). Was wondering if I can buy another-seems a pity to throw out a good throne, the rest of it is in great condition. Thoughts anyone?

Great Size

By: on 8 September 2020
I purchased the electric drum kit that came with a stool (wasn’t for me) I purchased this stool as it looked bigger and more sturdy, I’m a bigger girl so I needed something that I didn’t feel like I was going to fall off. It was bigger than I thought it was going to be which is a good thing. Easy set up, fast delivery.. would recommend very happy with my purchase thanks

Great Drum Throne

By: on 3 September 2020
Super impressed with the build quality and sturdiness of this drum throne. You could easily pay double for other brands at this quality. The seat is firm, but really comfortable and the delivery time was speedy. Really impressed

All Rounded..

I not a drummer, but use the stool for guitar / pedal steel playing. very good .. Great value

Quite ok.

By: on 24 April 2020
Not what I'd describe as plush, but certainly comfy enough. Seems sturdy enough. Time will tell. I'm no skinny minny, but there are no untoward noises. Good price. Easy enough to assemble. Doubles as a guitar stool, beats the wooden stool I've been using for that! The usual kudos to Artist.

Solid throne

By: on 10 April 2020
Compared to my old round seat this is awesome. A large seat that's contoured. Its firm but very comfortable - no more numb bum! I am impressed about how sturdy the mechanisms are, and definitely recommend this throne. Four working days for delivery to a regional area in QLD which is great service. Thanks Artist Guitars!

Drum Throne with Backrest

By: on 18 March 2020
Speedy delivery, affordable product, sturdy and comfortable. Backrest ideal for people with back injuries. Staff couldn't hel any more - a pleasure to deal with.

Very Impressive!

By: on 23 October 2019
Bought as a drum throne/guitar stool and couldnt be more impressed. Very sturdy and the quality is there. I now own Artist cymbal and hardware bags and can honestly say I cannot fault them. Throne has great range of height and is very comfortable!

Much better quality than I thought great value to money! Very heavy duty

Great value for the money.

By: on 19 April 2019
Branded thrones with a backrest can cost upwards of $250. For the money you are getting a lot. It's comfortable and sturdy. The only issue is that the backrest was slightly twisted so it was not straight, nevertheless the price is right for this throne. If you don't care about brands, or even if you do, save your money and get this.

Drum Stool

By: on 15 March 2019
I was contemplating spending $500+ for a decent drum stool with back support when I came across Artists Guitars site. For $129 with free delivery and returns, I thought what have I got to lose? I was shocked when I opened the box and saw the quality of the stool. Heavy duty hardware and quality stitching on the wide seat makes this one of my best online purchases ever. Extremely pleased with this stool and I highly recommend it.

Great Stool for Guitarists, too!

By: on 6 March 2016
This stool was bought with the fear that it may not have suited a guitarist. And I'm glad it proved otherwise. It is excellent: supports you in all the right places, adjustable to the Nth degree and so comfortable, Excellent service, and even better delivery time.
