Default Guitar Chair

Does anyone know of a chair or stool that is designed specifically for guitar playing? I would like to hear recommendations from people who are actually using one.

Thanks!

One word: Soundseat. See them at www.soundseat.com

Lots of these folks have one, and you'll be hard pressed to find a soul that doesn't love it. I had wondered what the "big deal" was, but finally got to try several out at the MonroeStock event. Bought one on the spot, and use mine everyday.

It's wonderful, and J.R. Baker is the real deal. Give them a call and talk about it. Good luck.

PS: Come to think of it, they're on sale this month, too.

Oh, yes! Many TGF members are in love with J. R. Baker's Sound Seat. J. R.'s a member here. We let him hang out with us musicians even if he's a drummer.

Here's a thread of testimonials from a while back:

Contact J. R. about his Sound Seat at jrbaker919@earthlink.net.

Played a double last Saturday where I had to have two set ups which meant using my old architect chair at site 1 and the soundseat at site 2. It was nice to get to site 2 and the soundseat.

I have a Pick-N-Glider as well, but find it sits me too straight up. Just not comfortable for me. I have an old swap meet rocker called a 'sewing rocker' that's better, just a plain old rocking chair with no arms. I like it better...

But nobody's touching my Soundseat!

Default Question???

Where do I send the commission checks to you guys...OH!!... I forgot, I'm a drummer. I'd rather owe it to you than cheat you out of it! Never mind.



I would love to talk chairs with you Cliff. Just e-mail your phone number to me.

Thanks,

Yes, Soundseat is the answer. I tried some of the competition at NAMM and frankly, they were no competition. Get the break down model for easy transport to gigs. Worth every penny and I'm a cheap ***.

You send the commission checks right here buddy! Don't forget the person who hooked you up!!!! LOL....

Default Just like a consultant, David...

You borrow MY watch, then make me pay you for the time. If this ends up in court, do you know a good lawyer? Hold it! That's kind of an oxymoron, isn't it? If you choose to answer though, make sure you are not looking in the mirror.

Default David, BTW...

would you agree to represent me in my lawsuit against J. R. Rogers. I want to make him remove the hair from the ''EEK'' icon so it looks more like me.

Cliff, I also have a SoundSeat. Mine has casters so it doubles as a desk chair at the computer. I just roll it back and forth across the room. I can't recommend it highly enough. Very, very comfortable!!

J.R., get off here and get back to building chairs!! You don't have time to play around! Orders are coming!

Love my Soundseat . . . it is a superb piece of craftsmanship, er, craftdrummership, oh wait, that's an oxymoron. How a drummer with no hair manages to build these outrageously comfortable seats is beyond me.

Ring up J.R. and get him to build one for you. I kid you not, this thing is the cat's meow, the icing on the cake, the P in potato, the creme de la creme.
