Premier 2112 2000 Series Drum Stool by Premier Drums
The 2000 series of Premier hardware was designed to save weight, room and cost, and yet be strong and versatile. The 2112 drum stool achieves that in my opinion. Of solid construction the bolts securely lock the height and 4 months since buying this I am still finding it easy to carry yet secure and comfortable - even after long gigs! Good quality drum stool from a long established company who know what drummers require - 4*.
