FOH Chairs
« on: May 25, 2010, 04:44:47 pm »

Anyone have any suggestions on chairs for control areas that are comfortable and travel well?

I've seen a few companies packing third-pack trunks with a pair of chairs inside... I'm looking for something a little more compact!  Perhaps fitting four into a quarterpack?  Am I dreaming?

Perhaps something like this:

Anyone have any suggestions?

A roc-n-soc (sp?) throne with a back, mounted to office chair rollers is really comfy.  Here is a picture (without the optional seat back)  http://www.rocnsoc.com/images/LSGX%20FR%20O-G%20024.png

I use 30" directors chairs.  They are somewhat fragile, but don't take a ton of space when folded.  

The 30" height allows you to put the board high enough to mix while sitting or standing.  I bought the ones with nylon mesh fabric, rather than canvas, it breathes well.

I just throw them on top of the rest of the gear in the truck.  I wish they were in a case with wheels, so I didn't have to deal with them during load-in/out.  However, as you said, who wants to devote a 30x30 case to a couple chairs.

Dick Rees pointed these out in another thread.
Available in 25" and 29" seat heights.
The 25" is perfect for me.  Tall enough to be about where I would be if I was standing.
Sturdy and cheap.  $24.99 + shipping

Now all you need is a pair of GK SuperPhones and you're ready for the big-time.

I have a pair of "extreme isolation headphones" that are 29 db or so and are loaded w/7506 drivers.  That's pretty darn close isn't it?!

I have something with the same seat as the roc and soc but it has a 3 leg drum throne stool. Very tall  and works great for FOH to either sit in and adjust down a bit, or raise up to kind of half sit and stand before your ready to sit all the way,

You can take the seat off and it folds like a drum throne.

Tim, easy with the fat stuff, Smile  For me its normally a drunk "lady".

Something tall and comfortable. Make a canvas bag to protect it or not, but throw it on top of pile in the truck so it doesn't get crushed.

Be sure you label the back of it "FOH SOUND".

I got one of these as a gift last year and it's held up very well. When I assembled it I used plenty of Lock-tight on all the nuts and bolts including the foot pads. The chair with the hydraulics works for me..
OBTW. Cover up the CRAFTSMAN logo with gaff....
