Interesting but looks like it could be a bit uncomfortable. Where can I find more information on it ?
Can you please list those companies? I'd like to know. Tack på förhand!
This is exactly why my back feels better with my cheapo wal-mart office chair. It's basic, and kind of hard, and I can only be comfortable sitting straight.The idea is that because it has less padding then you really have to sit correctly to be comfortable.
Never tried one, just liked the idea, and I've not been liking how flexible and squishy pretty much all the thrones feel, so I wanted to give this a chance.
The Wacco Old School Set seems a little wacko. That doesn't mean they don't look cool. Maybe it should be Old, Old School. When were rope tensioned drumsets in vogue? Answer: Never.Ja men absolut.
I actually thought of 2 more after yesterday.
-Kumu Drums. They have been around longest, they make birch kits with different shell thicknesses.

-Saari-rummut. Sets and snares with their own wood lug design. Mikael Wikman has a kit or 2.

Not entirely sure if they make their own shells, but it's definitively more than just drum assembling.

Stave drums with really interesting design. The inside walls are wavy so they have quite dry overtones.

-Sorva Custom Drums
-Cast and seamless metal snares. I have one of their stainless steel snares and it's fantastic!

They mainly make true solid conga drums, but also done true solid snares carved from one piece of wood.

Not 100% sure if they make the shells in the house, but it looks like it.

There's a truism for rowing machines and I suspect it applies here too. Cushy plush seats feel nice at first. But I think the more padding you carry with you, the less padding you want on your chair. My 60lb kid who's sit bones gouge when he tries to sit in my lap could probably use a bit. Myself, too thick a padding causes my butt to go sleep, even if it feels comfy at first sit.This is exactly why my back feels better with my cheapo wal-mart office chair. It's basic, and kind of hard, and I can only be comfortable sitting straight.
I really, really love my Roc-N-Socs, but now you've got me thinking about this spartan drum throne.
There's a super rare Drouyn Bandstand kit for sale on reverb right now; check the listing: https://reverb.com/uk/item/56810608-drouyn-bandstand-1970-71-honey-maple?publish_confirmation=trueWhilst assembling material for an upcoming Top Vegemite-Eating Drummers, I stumbled across an astonishing news article revealing that Australia (pop. 25.9 million) -- a country heretofore known chiefly for Crocodile Dundee, the Croc Hunter (R.I.P), AC/DC and Kangaroos -- has an economy heavily weighted in the manufacture of drum sets, with as many drum factories as the number of Australian bands I can name off the top of my head: Divinyls, Rose Tattoo, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, The Easybeats, INXS, Midnight Oil, Cold Chisel (?) and Men at Work!
If you break this down on a per-capita basis, New York State alone should have at least six drum companies. Slackers.
