Comfort Core

Tama understand that to achieve a successful performance, drummers need to feel comfortable and secure.

They need to feel confident in their equipment and trust it to perform correctly so that they can focus on their playing.

Tama’s research and design team, therefore, sought to improve their 1st chair range of drum thrones with one key focus in mind; to optimise comfort.

That’s why the Tama Glide Rider throne is designed around the Comfort Core concept. Each innovative feature of the Glide Rider stool was developed with comfort in mind.
Comfort is literally at the core of this stool.

Wide Rider Seat

The Tama Glide Rider drum throne features a saddle style seat with front cutaways to offer unimpeded freedom of movement for your legs.

The PVC covered seat has a moulded urethane foam cushion interior which has been specifically selected because of its ability to hold its shape.

This means the seat will hold its form for years to come, ensuring a consistently supportive, comfortable sitting position.

The base of the seat is constructed from 12mm thick plywood to provide extra strength and security for a playing position you can be confident in.

Newly Designed Cloth Top

The Tama HT530BC drum stool features a newly designed cloth top for luscious looks and a soft feel.

Made from a special fabric material that wicks away perspiration to ensure a comfortable solid seating position.

Often with PVC topped stools perspiration from playing can result in a slippy sitting surface.

By absorbing the perspiration and drawing it away from the seat surface, the cloth top ensures a consistently secure seating position throughout your playing session.

Glide-Tite Grip Joint

This patented design provides a much more secure attachment than standard throne joints.

Utilising a metal to metal contact point, the Glide-Tite provides an extremely strong, stable and secure joint grip, ensuring your height setting remains firmly in place throughout your performance.

No matter how much you move or how hard you hit, the Glide-Tite Grip Joint will make sure your stool remains sturdy.
Seat Lock

Another patented feature of the Tama Glide Rider is the seat lock design.

This attribute uses a 2-piece locking hinge collar mechanism to provide a superior throne to base connection.

This 2-piece system provides 360 degrees of pressure around the throne rod to ensure a super tight, extremely secure connection between the seat top and the throne base.

Offering reliable support, this seat lock design feature removes wobble to provide a stable seating position that you can trust.

Super Stabiliser Design

The Glide Rider drum throne also features a super stabiliser design which sees a reduction in the distance between the centre throne pipe and the floor.

This results in a lower centre of gravity which in turn provides a much more rugged, stable seating position.

Additionally, stability is added to the stool thanks to the lengthened tripod leg stabiliser bars which work to create a stronger more robust frame design.

The double braced tripod legs also add yet another layer of stability, utilising a design that doesn’t taper at the point at which the legs insert into the rubber feet.

The tapered design, which is extremely common on drum stools, can lead to a weaken set up, which Tama have sought to avoid with this non-tapered idea.

1st Chair Height Adjustment

The height adjustment design of this Tama Glide Rider drum stool features two different securing points.

Firstly, the threaded rod throne ensures a secure height adjustment setting is achieved to make sure you select your optimum playing position.

The T-bolt system then works to securely lock the adjusted height in place to provide a solid, reliable playing position that you can trust to remain consistent while you play.

Oversized Rubber Feet and Foot Life

At 1.5 times larger than previous Tama stool feet, the oversized rubber feet found on the Tama Glide Rider provide an extra-large footprint that allows for optimised stability and a secure stool placement.

In addition to these extra big feet, Tama have also incorporated their Foot Life design into the Glide Rider stool.

This feature includes an innovative plastic leg attachment which eliminates the wear and tear that can occur from metal to metal contact between the base leg and the inside of the foot.

The result is a set of stool feet that last much longer, meaning your stool will maintain a peak performance level for years to come.


The specially designed RockLok system of this stool features a nylon bushing at the bottom of the threaded rod to provide a much more secure stool centre.

The nylon bushing prevents the threaded rod from moving from side-to-side within the base frame which enables an exceptionally durable and stable playing feel.


This professional quality saddle style drum stool has been superbly designed to ensure the most stable, supportive, comfortable playing feel possible.

Topped with a super soft, perspiration wicking cloth material, the Tama HT530BC ensures a comfortable and secure seating position.

From the urethane foam cushioning seat and the Super Stabilizer Design to the RockLok and Seat Lock systems, this Tama Glide Rider throne offers the height of secure stability to ensure you feel confident in your playing position.

Added aspects like the Oversized Rubber Feet and Foot Life designs ensure this stool is road ready and built to last to keep you comfortable from studio to stage for years to come.
