Height adjustable, rotates and should fit your bottom size.

It needs a clean and the vinyl is torn at places but other than that does what you are asking for.

Thanks Jean, but I'm not carting that around.
Hey, it is retro as. Imagine it being covered in leather and all the chrome polished to a blinding shine. You don't have to carry it around. Just for home use :D




Okay, no worries.
When faced with quality, I recognise it every time.

Back rest, foot rest and stool.

Thinking this through out loud:
I imagine being pretty much at standing height. I'm still ok playing standing up but post surgery, I never regained full motor control over my left leg. It's too inaccurate to work the pedalboard and standing on it alone requires more concentration that I have available while playing as well. So ideally, I'll just lean back and park my bum while I'm pedalboarding then stand up again.

So backrests and footrests are superfluous to my purpose and height is important. Need to figure out the ideal height.

If heights an issue could you find the most comfortable stool then adjust the pedalboard height to match? Might be easier to make a riser for your board than finding the perfect stool.

Bruce, instead of a stool, you should replace all your pedals with MIDI controllable equivalents, and program MIDI sequences to control your board. You’ll just need to make your drummer play to a click track, never vary your arrangements/song structures, and learn how to program MIDI. Simple.

I feel like we're all business analysts trying to define requirements for a product/feature. Along those lines... would you want to be flexible throughout the gig, i.e. stand and walk around some of the time, but have the support of a stool in front of the pedal board when you need to tap dance?

Left field suggestion: a loop switcher would eliminate the need for tap dancing.

The one Nik posted is probably perfect- folding and height adjustable. Just cut off the bits you don’t need.

This is the way, even better ditch pedals and amps entirely and use an AxeFX controlled by a DAW, small rack load in for the win!

Thinking from an engineering perspective, if you just want a bit of bum support to lean/perch on to give some stability to your left leg while your right leg is off the ground working the peddles you're biggest issue is likely to be guaranteed stability and not skudding off backwards when you lean in it.

Once you've solved that you don't want it getting in the way on stage any more than the minimum.

I'd be tempted to think of something like Gym equipment/Gig barriers but hopefully a little less heavy.

A plate you stand on, so your body weight is locking it down. In he middle a click in locator for a square bar pole that rises and has the pad on it (click in holder so you can disassemble and not take huge space up. The amount of plate behind you is what will stop it tipping when combined with your weight on to of it.

The thing might need a rubber type base to stop it slipping.

If you can't find anything off the shelf find a friendly metal worker and see what they could do. Maybe you could use Aluminium for lightness (but don't know how you weld that if needed).

if you stand stage left, could you use a flight case to your left to lean against ?

My vote also for a drummer's throne. You can get one with a back rest and they are strong, light & pack small.

Why should drummers be the only band members allowed to sit down on the job?
