Komposik,

In any drumset, there are only 2 pieces of gear that you never want to skimp on:

1. Your ride cymbal
2. Your Throne.

You'll need to make an investment in a high-quality throne, since it's the only part of your kit that you will use every single time you play. (And your back will thank you, believe me!)

There are high quality options out there in all price ranges, but there are a few things you'll want to compare to find the best value for you;

1. Padding. Is the padding on the throne a few cm thick, or is it nice and cushy? Firm, or forgiving on the backside?
2. Backrest. While this can be added later in some cases, does the throne you want come with one?
3. Stability. Which thrones are single-braced and which are double? Which do you prefer?
4. Ease of motion. Do you want a hydraulic height system like in Roc-N-Soc, or the regular ol' threaded post system?

There are great thrones available from all major drum manufacturers, including Ludwig, Pearl, Tama, DW, Pacific, Pork Pie, Yamaha, and Mapex, and also companies that specialize in thrones, like Roc-N-Soc and SoundSeat.

You'll need to do your own research and come to your own conclusions. Good luck, and let us know what you wind up getting!!

Thanks for the answer. It is a pity, but except for budgetary throne I cannot feel anything better, and I want to order to myself something better. Whether has a place such concept, how noise, a scratch throne at work in studio?

Tell in detail about the understanding: In any drumset, there are only 2 pieces of gear that you never want to skimp on:

1. Your ride cymbal IT IS ESPECIAL
2. Your Throne.

what he means by that is that you should be mostly interested in rice cymbal and drum throne. buy something that is good, even though it costs more.
