I thought this came up a few years ago - you mean wheels that lock when playing or do you want to actually roll around while drumming? Makes no sense - your body weight is anchored with the stool and if you start playing, your arms and legs will actually push you away from the kit (and off the stage?)....don't know the scientific term for it (action - reaction?)......survey says "X"!
No no. I think they're meant so you can go from the drums to your desk top computer to, the dinner table, back to the drums, then over to the bathroom, back to the computer, over to the TV, to the front door to let the dog in, over to the refrigerator to get a drink, back to the drums, over to door to get the paper, into the living room to look for the remote, back to the drums, and then over to the couch, to nap.
Then back over to turn out the lights and turn the night lights on, then over to...
Naaaaaaaaaaay! I would kit myself off the riser and end up on the floor. If I were already set up the floor I would send myself across the room and have to fight it the whole time. No way, no for me, uhuh, nope, niet, nien.
I sat in on a kit with casters on the chair , I took the casters out between sets .
I was friends with the drummer , and yes I did a bit of smack talk about why in the
heck would you bring your office chair to a gig !!!!
I have used a (discontinued), DW canister throne with wheels for about 11 years, 100’s of gigs. The expandable PVC version, has a comfortable padded top, always the exact same height, almost indestructible. Someday I may need to replace the wheels. I have always wondered why it never was more popular presumably was too expensive?
