When I'm playing the concertina, I'll sit on anything, even a concertina case (or I'll stand). When I play the cello, I prefer a good dining room type chair or piano bench. Folding or stackable chairs are horrible for playing cello. I've never heard of this one before, but it looks like it has potential. Three legs means it won't rock (is that a good thing in a musician's chair?). Picture here.

Mick Jagger tells me y're right about it not rocking and hence why he did not buy one.


It seems the porch model may be more appropriate for the bulk of the membership:

and I Mock u not:
"Trying to be as friendly as possible, Scout leads Boo to the porch and assists him into a rocking chair placed in a darker corner, where she thinks he will feel most comfortable. As she helps Boo along, she feels the odd sensation of her fantasy about finding him sitting on the porch one day coming true."

here's the utube- I gave up waiting for him to plaay his geetaw as my bandwidth is so bad soI'm going to bed!

No mention of pricing or availability yet, but I'd definitely want to 'test-sit' one prior to purchase, and considering the carbon-fiber construction, I wouldn't expect it to come cheap.

I doesnt seem to be available, but I have emailed the researcher suggesting that he could do a kickstarter campaign to raise funds. I think I would want to try one out as well. If they don't come cheap, I think I mint still be interested. I have been looking for a good chair for years!
