Re: Sit or Stand? Guitarist and Bassists only
I have in the past used drum thrones and those portable keyboard benches.
few months back I bought A tall "universal throne". It has a padded seat
and backrest, does not swivel but has a built in foot stool. It is
and so a little more cumbersome to pack, than either a drum throne or
bench, but it sits higher (adjustable to something like 37" from floor to
bottom of seat) so I sit taller to the audience, which adds to visual
of performance. This also helps in switching from sitting to standing
p[ositions as the difference between the two is not so...drastic (even tho
am also quite tall).

Kim made a great point about hiding behind one's gear. If you must have
such a complicated setup, and do a lot of tweaking of it........let the
audience see that as well! And yes, neaten up those cords. How many
have we seen "one of out own" digging thru a cord-orgy to find the culprit
of a technological SNAFU...while on stage!
