Guitar stools
« on: March 06, 2018, 02:02:06 pm »
I'm trying to find a guitar stool when I play acoustic
I've tried every thing from chairs with no arm's to height stools I have at home but not comfortable at at all.
I saw a height adjustment stool at Steve's music school but are very expensive.
They started at 75 $C and up.
Can you recommend anything else I may have forgotten?
Thanks

An adjustable office chair with no arm rests. Or put your right foot on something to lift it up about three ir four inches.
This is if you have yourguitar on your right leg.

Buy a cheap wooden leg stool from a junk shop and cut the legs off to the right height, that’s what I did!

You can't beat a height adjustable foot rest.

I got a Hercules one, but cheaper versions exist and do the same job.

I'm using this:

It's a chair for kids from IKEA, but with a cushing on it is great for the purpose.

I just use my adjustable (height) officechair wich i got from Ikea. I removed the armrests and made got myself a little wooden box to put my foot up. That's it. There's really nothing more to it, i guess...

Oh, and it also reclines, so i can lay back, watch a movie and do some airchords while i'm watching.. or some scale or just out right fiddling with the guitar...  ;)
I'll get it in the end. Just don't give up, that's the key....

I use something similar this, found on ebay.ca if that helps. Mine was bought locally in France.

Adjustable height and the foot rest is about right for me although I do use one of adjustable foot stools normally.

Cheers

I have a chair and it is also a retro step stool. But it won't cost more than $40. It is slightly smaller than the original chair of the 1950s.

I like the retro look of it. I put it together and it takes about 30 minutes.

Here's what I'm (literally) rolling with in my music room:

Couldn't be happier. Gaming chairs give the lumbar and general back support needed for sitting comfortably for long periods of time. The arms fold up when you need to play.
