Bought a Roc & Soc Mac throne
 
While getting some new bass drum heads at Guitar Center I saw they had the Mac Saddles back in stock. After a few minutes sitting on it at one of the kits I was won over. This is one comfortable throne. Sorry Pearl & Tama, Roc & Soc has the design down pat. Tomorrow will be the first test with the band and 3 or 4 hours of jamming.

I guess this forum doesn't allow the image tag so here are a couple shots of the Tama kit from yesterday.

I had to white out the lyrics on the whiteboard from the other band in one shot. The bass player is a bit of a weird guy.

The throne is nice. Once I got back to my studio I setup the cymbals and played for another few hours. Keester felt fine though my legs were feelin it. I've been dealin with a naggin right big toe injury for the past few months. It's finally to the point where it's feeling better so I can have my throne back to it's normal height. Now it's a matter of getting the leg muscles conditioned again.

Very nice throne and kit. That's my
favorite throne, btw.

That looks like a ribbon crasher on the far-left pedal... that's sweet. Wish I could afford one.

Those Roc-n-Soc thrones are great, can't you get a backrest for them?

Roc-n-Soc is the bomb! I've been using one for years, very durable too.

Go Axis, Go Axis!!!! :) Those beaters you have, das what I'm talkin' bout! Lightning fast!

Very nice kit btw.

You guys with the Roc n Soc nitros, is the saddle when screwed on tight still meant to swivel or can it be locked rigid...if so how? Cheers

hm... i just bought a pearl roadster with back... its alright. Probobly should have went for the roc n soc or pork pie bike. Im glad it works well! Nice kit by the way man, very clean.

Nice kit Bostic, very similar to what I aspire to

Bostic 02-16-2006 03:15 PM

I wish the design of the seat attachment was like the Tama model. The Roc & Soc just uses a simple metal to metal, the wing nut tip touching the throne base. Which unfortunately means it doesn't stay put. I don't really care for the throne to move left or right while I'm playing. This is the case on both the original style top and the narrower 'hugger' model that I bought. The Tama thrones have the nylon insert in them so when you tighten the seat it does not move at all.

That Black Tama Rockstar kit and the cymbal stands have been sold. Still have the cymbals, and the Pearl and Sonor kits.

Nice drumkit!
but i think roc n soc thrones are so......
BIG
it feels kinda weird when your seat is bigger than
your snaredrum ?

Johnny 02-17-2006 09:47 AM

I hate the moving throne too. Over time, it becomes the wobbling throne. And that sucks.
