Gibraltar 9608OS Oversized Motorcycle Drum Throne

Another member of the Gibraltar 9608 series, the 9608OS is a saddle style drum throne. Basically, this means that the drum throne is modeled off of am old-style motorcycle seat.

Beyond that, there aren’t any features that differentiate the 9608OS from other members of the series.

As implied by the name, the seat on the 9608OS is oversized. The padding has more give than your standard drum throne, so it may be a good fit for someone looking for a seat with more cushion.

The only thing to be wary of is that because you sink into the seat more it may impact your circulation, though this risk is offset by the saddle design.

Key Features

  • Seat Size: 17"
  • Height Adjustment Range: 20” to 28”
  • Height Adjustment Method: Friction
  • Extras: Memory Lock


This is a favorite with many heavy drummers who appreciate the larger saddle size in addition to its solid build. But it also gets many thumbs up from regularly sized drummers who find it both reliable and comfortable during long sessions.


There aren't any consistently reported negatives by drummers.


This is a better option for those who want a large saddle.
