Gearank Recommendation

The 9908 appeared on our recommended list for Saddle Drum Thrones from September 2017 until November 2019 when it had been out-ranked by other thrones.

Overview

As far as hardware is concerned, the Gibraltar 9908 Drum Throne is very similar to the 9608 series.

It has the same layout for the legs, is built with the same materials, and has the same height adjustment mechanism.

The main difference between this model and those in the cheaper 9608 series is the seat.

The seat on the 9908 was built and designed with a lot of care, and if you have back issues it’s definitely worth a look. In addition to its stitching, it was also built in a way that provides drummers with extra lumbar support.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options which you can see in our guide to The Best Drum Thrones.
