posture and throne position aiding in playing
i was moving drums around and moved a couple of cymbals and while doing so moved my throne. it was in a different spot more back and it just made both of my double pedals feel a lot better and allowed for better posture and less soreness (i have back issues).

so i don't know how many of you will benefit or if its relevant, but just give it a shot you move it back to where it was.

I hate the feeling of sitting on top of the pedals for sure, I always sit pretty far back and high up which I find is majorly conducive to fast double bass playing. Throne is definitely one of the most important parts of any kit, it's a shame that so many people overlook it, I can play well on almost any setup but I really enjoy the feeling of a good, sturdy throne, that's the one piece of gear (besides pedals) that I try to always bring for the sake of my own comfort.

In reference to your back problems have your tried adjusting your seat height? You should have your legs bent at about a 90 degree angle. Also maybe try adjusting your drums at different angle so you don't have to strain to hit them as much.

its right at 90* and was previously, but before i was closer to the bass pedal, now there is a little smaller back. the sore back coulf come from 4 hour gigs and a les paul or wolfgang.
