Piano seat with backrest
on: October 29, 2020, 10:27:55 AM
I've been having problems with my upper back for a long time, but recently it became quite serious problem to me. Even though I make regular brakes, both at the piano and at work, and do regular stretches and exercises, it still seems to be progressing. It's much better when I play seating on my office chair with high backrest. The problem is the backrest severely restricts my arm movements and the chair itself is a bit too low.

I did some research on suitable chairs and someone suggested using a drum throne. Have you guys any experience with those? Maybe you could suggest some other more suitable chair?
Would it be better to get a shaped seat, like that one:
or would it be better to use a round one?

Jansen makes a few

Maybe you could get an ergonomic office chair which you can remove the arms. 
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach
