Gibraltar 9608MB Motorcycle Seat Drum Throne

Gearank High Notes

Gearank Recommendation

The 9608MB appeared on our recommended list for Drum Thrones With Backrest from September 2017 until December 2021 when it had been out-ranked by the Mapex T775 and Tama HT741B.


Another member of the 9608 series, the Gibraltar 9608MB Motorcycle Drum Seat Throne combines the fantastic features found in the series with the extra support of a back rest.

If you need the extra support, the 9608MB is actually a pretty good bargain. The throne is actually cheaper than buying a different member of the series and a back rest separately.

Beyond that, there isn’t a reason to buy this throne over another member of the series. There aren’t any features that differentiate it from other models in the series beyond the backrest.

It still comes with the great hardware the brand is known for, as well as the memory lock mechanism.

If you need additional back support, and your playing style doesn't have you leaning in to the kit where the support is ineffective, then you aught to find this an improvement over your regular throne.


  • Height Adjustment Range: 20” to 28”
  • Height Adjustment Method: Friction
  • Extras: Back Rest, Memory Lock
Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Drum Thrones.
