Need my backrest

I agreed to play a gig with a local big band, along with three rehearsals beforehand. They said there was a set of drums there, so I took snare drum and cymbals. I also loaded the bag with throne, hat, and snare stand, but when I got there decided to use the hardware they had. I'm sorry I did so. The stands were all flimsy, but serviceable, but the throne about killed me. After an hour of playing without a backrest my neck started hurting, and I realized that my posture was to blame. Next week I'll leave my bag at home, but will definitely take my Roc 'n Soc, including the backrest.

I'll use whatever gear is backline, but I always bring my throne. I don't have a backrest any more, but it is set up to the perfect height for me to get the right posture, plus it's broken in to my butt shape.

And BTW: Recently, I have been adjusting mine a little closer to my back than normal. I think I feel more dependent on it or a since of security even while playing.
