The Round Rider features a traditional and gently rounded cushion shape that is very popular due to its versatility. The newly designed cloth top features a special fabric material that wicks away perspiration and prevents drummers from slipping while playing. The new "Seat Link" casting securely grips the entire circumference of the throne’s upper rod with a nylon bushing. TAMA's "Rocklok" features a specially designed Nylon Bushing at the bottom of the throne's threaded rod that prevents side-to-side motion within the base. This special feature provides exceptional durability and stability.
