The TAMA brand drum throne that I have used for as long as I can remember has become quite tergid over the years. The gradual transition has gone unnoticed from my posterior much like the slow progress of water whittling away at stone. Once the realization struck that something wasn’t feeling right in my lower back I decided to do some research into the subject.
After reading many reviews online and at Sweetwater.com I decided on the Roc-N-Soc Nitro Extended Hydraulic Throne, of course with a blue top. I was wanting to keep the kit consistent by purchasing a DW Heavy-Duty Air Lift Throne but held off after comparing reviews and prices. I also liked that the Roc-N-Soc has a soft cloth top instead of just the leather that can make things much hotter downtown ha. I am also looking forward to the hydraulic action and give in pressure when playing that is supposed to reduce strain on your lower back.
On that note, more to follow as I break this bad boy in.
After a brutal summer of excessive heat, family reunions, running a business with my Dad, choosing to paint my house on my own, illness in the family, and spending time with the love of my life Bre, I am getting the itch to play again. One of my most treasured hobbies sometimes has to take a back seat to life and the events that unfold. I am sure this is common with most hobbyist musicians and I truly understand. God knows I have some things I want to do on the set and my blog for a long time.
Upcoming blog posts, Fluid Drumming, Drumming In The Negative Space and Drumming Mechanical Leverage. These themes are somewhat complex and rolling around in my mind. Working to get them to the visual and written understandable words over the next few weeks.
Until next time, keep on drumming.
