Keyboard/Drum Throne

Ultra Keyboard Throne
How many times have you said your back is killing you?  Then why not sit in a chair that makes sense?  Oh, because some Classical music teacher had hard and fast rules about sitting on a regular piano bench and taught you all this nonsense about proper posture?  And then when you complain about your back bothering you, the advice you receive from other people is that you should do a bunch of exercises like sit-ups, to strengthen your back and stomach muscles?

Get Real!  What a bunch of hog wash!  If you had the proper chair supporting your back it wouldn't hurt in the first place!  Hopefully, you dumped the Classical piano teacher and bought yourself a chair that makes sense, good old common sense!  You'd think people would know better these days than to keep using a bench, when your going to play for long periods of time, like during a gig.

A chair with a back support is common sense.  Get smart......get back support!  You'll play better because you feel better!
