I had no expectations of this being the sturdiest throne, because I know good ones (I own a Tama and a Gibraltar as well), and I also owned some very basic/flimsy ones too. I suspected some issues knowing the price. But it did not meet my already lowered expectations. The comfort is okay, no real complains there. The back support is a bit weak, I can alter the angle of it just with my arm (with some force, but still). Not sure how it would behave under my full weight pressed to it. Not sure I want to find out either.
And it is wobbly as hell! I constantly have to retighten the screws, and the legs have no option to tighten them on the lower side of the throne-base (where the legs horizontally connect to the shaft in the middle). When I sit on it, it is wobbly, not really stable at all.
I altered the throne quite a bit to have a somewhat usable throne. Drilled a route for a winged screw to tighten the legs at the bottom, which improved the stability. I just cannot - in good conscience - recommend this! Not without some minor upgrades. And what is frustrating that with 2 minor tweaks this can be a decent mid-tier drumthrone. Stronger support for the back and a screw to make the legs stiff(?). For the price and for a beginner, this is okay(ish). But would I recommend to someone who wants to use it on the long run? Absolutely not! If you have the know-how and the willingness to modify it to work as it should, than go for it. I admit, I had worse thrones in the past! But as I grow older, my tolerance for design flaws... well... you know what I mean.
