Slow setup, but very sturdy (and silent!)

Blickfanger, 30.07.2014
My Gibraltar 9608D Drum Throne will probably never see a drummer. I purchased this stool to be used in my voice booth, for singers and voice-over actors, so it needed to be very silent when someone is sitting on it. It's absolutely perfect for this job: it gives a great (high) sitting posture with no pressure on the abdomen, so it allows for free breathing. There is no stuff that sticks out, like arm or back rests, which would inevitably cause noises or change the room's acoustics. The height adjustment procedure is very slow (much slower than Tama stools for example), but is also extremely stable once set and locked. Tamas will remain wobbly, even after tightening the knobs strongly, because of the toy-like center column fixing mechanism. But the Gibraltar 9608D's legs and columns are totally rocksteady due to the serious locking mechanisms. It does not make any mechanical noises when you sit and move on it.

The seat is a bit softer than the Tama I also have. This can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on one's preference. I feel that the slightly harder seat of the Tama is less fatiguing and allows for better blood circulation, but the Gibraltar is certainly not bad in this respect either. The velvet cloth on top is of a lovely texture: natural feeling thickness and softness. Hopefully it will last long. The velvet on my Tama stool feels more synthetic and sandpaper-like, although that gives great grip as well. The Gibraltar foam has some memory effect, but keeps pushing back just enough not to loose its sitting-ball function.

Metal finishing and cloth sewing are all of very high quality. It's a heavy stool compared to most others, but if you intend not to travel too much with it this is only a good thing. In case the top might wear out you can simply buy another. I expect a very long life out of the metal work and mechanisms. All in all I am very happy with this stool.

Please note that the drum key that you need for the memory lock is not included, so it's better to order one with it if you don't have one. Thomann has a nice one on offer for a low price. The Gibraltar 9608D Drum Throne is made in Taiwan. This is something I would have liked to know in advance of buying (like I always wish to know where some product is being made).

Professional drum throne for a good price

10.08.2016
I use the chair now for a good year for hours in the practice room, he was already at some gigs a good companion and I am until now very satisfied!

It is therefore massively processed, wide rubber feet, which ensure a non-slip stand and make tilting impossible. It is easy to assemble and dismantle, the screws are easy to operate and an additional support can be used to attach the well-adjustable pivot for its height so that there is no problem with a possible fall in height, which is the case with some drum thrones Unfortunately often is the case. Until now, there are no weaknesses in the thread, which is infinitely variable in height.
The seat itself is beautifully finished and has a pleasantly soft fabric surface. With frequent play loosen the fastening screws below unfortunately a little, whereby he minimally wiggle and turn starts, which is however not bad, 10 seconds and he stops again. :)
At first, I was skeptical of his dome-shaped seat, but that's what makes the game look evener. It is really comfortable, not too soft or too hard padded, a healthy medium, so I can play for hours without getting physical discomfort. Because of its round shape, I also play my thighs on the double-bass drum, which does not limit my movements.
Because of its massive equipment, the chair is also not the lightest and needs more space than you think, but for a stable product is worth it!

Conclusion: Hammer, stable, not too soft and very comfortable professional drum throne, which will surely still hold a good time, so for this price unbeatable! Currently the best thing I could use so far and I have already experienced a lot!
