Folding chair for FOH use
« on: August 22, 2019, 06:09:14 pm »

Has anyone found a decent chair that's easily collapsable yet comfortable enough for use at FOH?

Right now I bring a nice tall drafting chair, but it's such a pain to find room to pack it in the truck.  You'd think someone would make something that comes apart easily and can pack into a reasonably sized package, right?

Havenít used one myself, but the CozyRoadie looks really nice.

If you need a taller option, they are working on one.  Check out the second video (the one from NAMM 2019).

I use a drum throne with a back.

Gator frameworks guitar stool.  $70 at guitar center and so convenient. Even has back rest.

I have this chair for 2 months and I love it:



It comes apart easily and it's fast to setup up.
I bought it with the backpack bag so It could be easy to transport in the van.

The bag it's bigger in reality than what appears on the photos, so it's not a small item, but during a full afternoon soundcheck and a long concert I always regret when I don't take it with me.

Seems like a good option , considering the price is half of the Thomann.
Tough to beat the comfort of the drafting chair, and the fact it rolls,  but it is a pain to pack.

Check companies that sell astronomy equipment as well, these style of stools are often sold as observation seats with telescopes.

Otherwise, another option a friend and I have been using is one of these:

Big and sturdy, yet folds up. Side car with drink holder. 

Best regards,

John

I have a foam cushion cut to fit on top of a Pelican Storm case.

I have tried that but, in my case, too hard on the back with no backrest and foot rest.
Still a better option than standing all day :)
Walmart has "directors chairs" for a low cost.
