Tama HT130 Standard Throne
Tama’s HT130 is a basic but wonderful throne for your consideration. This pick has a firm, round seat covered by leather which makes it very affordable and durable. While I have several drum thrones for a variety of different playing situations, I often use the HT130 for recording because it seems to keep me in the moment. I’ll admit it’s a little harder than most thrones, but this throne is still comfortable enough to use for short playing sessions.
The thrones height adjustment mechanism is similar to a cymbal stand along with a locking clamp to prevent it from falling if the tightening wing nut fails. The base of the throne is very solid in comparison to other entry level thrones and its pretty lightweight which means easy transportation when you’re gigging. I also appreciate that the top of the seat detaches with a simple turn of a wing nut for travel purposes. Overall this seat is a great value for the budget conscious drummer.
