The saddle style DW5120 was noted to be a great improvement over stock thrones. One user with posture issues while drumming quickly felt more comfortable with the DW5120. The plush padding also kept posterior soreness and pressure to a minimum.


One user noted that the screws tend to wear out if over-tightened.


For an ergonomic drum throne, the DW5120 scores big on comfort and stability. Get it if you need a good, anatomically shaped throne at a good price.
