    When @Oddly posted a picture of his fresh stool in another thread, I thought it may be handy to have a thread for the miscellaneous kit (chairs, stools, footrests, etc) that provide comfort during practice/play.

    For me, when my smashed body gets a bit weary, I'm relying on a Gibraltar 9608 Drum Throne to provide some relief.

    Well, as the inspiration for this thread, I feel I should contribute....

    I'm liking your practice space, btw.

    Have you considered raising your amp up though, or mainly headphones used there?

    @Oddly potentially used the amp (as a stool sAMP) until he went and got himself a proper place to park his derriere :)

    I see you have a nice apple on your stool. Does anyone here have corn in their stool?

    Hopefully others will provide you with samples to analyze.

    If it doesn't fold flat I won't use it. I bought a stool from K-Mart (I think) a few years ago. Perfect height, folds flat, light weight. Cost me $12-ish. It's not to sit on all night, just to take a load off my back, feet, and shoulders now and then.

    In all seriousness, the Ikea Urban chair fits my needs. It's not foldable/portable though.

    Foldable because you use during gigs, as well?

    In the country band I'm in the back row, and anyone who plays country knows there is nothing more boring on bass than a country waltz in 3/4 time. My cue to literally take a back seat. ;)

    Am I the only one to be amused by a topic 'Check my stool' being replied to by an 'MD'? :D

    It's mainly headphones or low volume. I've only got the amp a week or two so it hasn't been outside to play yet.
    I do have a rehearsal with a new band next week and am planning on using it there. I'll most likely stick it on a beer crate or something for that.

    I use a collapsible, acoustical decoupling platform under my 1x12. The hinges are buffered for maximum sympathetic resonance attenuation.

    After having a speaker sitting on it for a long time, does your stool get impacted?

    I haven't looked at it since I put the speaker there a week or two ago. I know that's a long time to have it in place with no movement. Yeah, I'm a little retentive...
