What are you guys using? Any recommendations on something comfortable and maybe somewhat ergonomic?
Took the arms off a desk chair.
Not a bad idea.
I use a desk chair that has arms that raise up.
These are pricey, but you didn't provide a limit-Soundseat. Originally designed by a drummer, he expanded his market to include guitarists. These are the most comfortable I've found.
Otherwise, my teacher had me use a hardwood stool with a small pillow on it.
I use a drum seat, the type with a back rest.
This is what I use and love it.
Same here, but usually I practice standing up. I don’t sit on stage, so I might as well stand.
My wife bought me an Amish made stool not quite as tall as a bar stool - the seat is bent oak shaped sort of like a saddle, lower in the middle and curving upwards maybe three inches on the rounded ends. It was meant to sit on with the higher parts on either side but the lower edge of most guitars tend to contact the raised side if I'm playing and moving, so I sit on it like a saddle. The best thing about it is the spindles are the perfect height so there's no muscle tension in my legs and my guitar knee is slightly raised so the guitar doesn't move away.
All that said, if the love of my life hadn't bought it for me I would get a good drum throne.
I actually just ordered a Yamaha PKBB1 that looks very similar to that....
I just sit in my Lazyboy.
Soooo much info out there!
I've tried everything conceivable for this but i'm very happy with my current: a square cube, upholstered all around but extra padding on the seat and lid lifts for inside storage. A present from my sister.
Standing, dining chair with no arms, and a cool old IKEA stool that is brushed chrome and black vinyl. If I'm tweaking the Fractal stuff, I want to be at eye level with it, or my laptop if using AxeEdit.
Anyone tried a sacco sack?
Eames DCM is my practice chair
Shorter rocking chair with no arms. A company in the Carolinas makes them but can't remember their name. Originally designed for nursing mother's, I think they sell more to guitar players now.
Corn cob pipe optional.
Me too. I fought arms on my home office chair for years and was ecstatic to trip across one when I was shopping for chairs last time. It isn't this exact one, but similar in style/function.
+1 for drum stool
office chair with arms removed, I had to be able to roll the chair around. I went to second hand furniture store that buys office and hotel furnishings. 600 dollar chair when it was new for 89 dollars. Plus I was patient. First trip there I didn't find a chair I liked that had removable arms. They constantly rotate stock and advised I try again in a week or two. Second trip I found the chair I currently use. I wouldn't hesitate in the slightest to go back should I need another.
