I bought this stool a year ago for home use after I started playing the acoustic guitar again. I found that sitting on a drum stool for a couple of hours did my back, neck - and playing - no favours at all, so I wanted to buy something designed for the purpose.
I chose K&M because I liked the quality feel of a drum microphone clip I have made by them. This stool does not disappoint. The metal parts are all very well finished, and the saddle-style seat pad is a lovely piece of upholstery. It took longer to put together that I expected - there were more parts than just the base and the seat - but it was worth the effort.
The stool is absolutely as solid as a rock, and once you have found the right adjustment (and it is super adjustable), it is set for life. I have used it every day for a year and haven't had to tighten anything. It is not the lightest of things, but it will pay you back by lasting years and years and being utterly reliable. Very highly recommended indeed.
