I've seen the many recommendations for the Original Guitar Chair and wish it could work for me. But aside from the high price, it's not height adjustable. For someone short like me -- 5'2" -- who sits about 16" off the ground, it's not ideal. But I appreciate your suggestion!Aucaman wrote:I have to sit forward (and occasionally bend forward) to play.
It would be very difficult (at least for me) to play leaning back on a chair. I have reduced back pain substantially by using a chair that does give me great support on my lower back (kidney level). It's called: "The Original Guitar Chair." The design is perfect. Moreover, it totally folds and can be put into a neat bag to take it wherever.
This chair and a Barnett guitar support -which allows me to sit straight with both feet on the floor- have helped me a lot.
As is any metal-tube chair with a tube cutter. Takes about five minutes. If I can do it, anyone can do it.robin loops wrote:Any wooden chair is height adjustable with a ruler and a saw.
For myself I find spinning chairs to be too unstable to use for classical playing. But there are ways to make them not spin, like using clamps or drilling a hole for a cotter pin (just make sure it doesn't compromise the gas seal in the piston that controls the height) etc. I do use one for casual playing that has removable armrests. That way I can leave the right armrest in place for more comfort when working in the music studio.Rick Beauregard wrote:I have been using an adjustable office chair (inexpensive from office deepeaux) with back and no arms. I don't mind the casters on carpet. And if you get casters with breaks on them it should work on hard floors too. I use the back to rest occaisionally.
