What We Think

Tama's 1st Chair HYDRAULIX throne allows for effortless height adjustment simply by activating a lever. And because the HYDRAULIX features a seat top that can be removed from the base, this innovative throne offers easy storage for transporting. The newly designed cloth top features a special fabric material that wicks away perspiration and prevents drummers from slipping while playing. Tama has also added Seat Lock, a 2-piece locking hinge collar system, that provides an amazingly secure connection between your seat top and the base of the throne.

Manufacturer's Description from Tama

The Ergo-Rider provides absolute ergonomic comfort and support. The hybrid of a round seat and a saddle style seat, it offers the maneuverability of the former, and the playing support of the latter. The front cutaway allows unimpeded thigh movement even during the most rapid double bass patterns. By lowering the distance of the center throne pipe to the floor, a lower center of gravity was achieved. Additional stability improved by lengthening the tripod leg stabilizer bar and designing double-braced tripod legs that do not taper at the point they insert into the rubber feet.

About Manufacturer

For over forty years, Tama has been an industry leader in professional drums and drum hardware. Their concerted effort to create high-quality products has given enthusiasts and professionals a wide variety of product options. 

The Tama name is derived from the first name of founder Yositaro Hoshino’s wife, Tama Hoshino. "Hoshino" translates to "star field." That's the origin of the star theme that unifies the entire Tama product line — from their entry-level Imperialstar drums and popular Starclassic series to their top-of-the-line Star series drums.  

Tama's innovations can be found in their entry-level sets all the way up to their professional Star series drums. The Starclassic line has been producing premium shell drums like maple, birch, andbubingawith exquisite finishes for over two decades. Their patented Starcast Mount and Star Mount have continued to improve tone and aesthetics without sacrificing quality.

Their high-performance hardware has been one of the most trusted names for quality and durability since 1977 when they bought a portion of the Camco company. Today, the Iron Cobra and Speed Cobra lines have multiple options for players with a variety of needs. 

Whether you are after drums or hardware, Tama continues to be one of the best companies when it comes to getting the most for your money.
