  • Guitar chair recommendation

    Posted by HarryH on December 22, 2021 at 7:38 am

    I just signed up and was browsing the Community Support pages and was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a comfortable chair for playing. The chair I’m currently using is my office chair and I’m not sure it’s ideally suited for playing. Any advise is appreciated!

    Thanks.

    Harry

    I bought a core trainer desk chair thing on amazon called ErgoErgo that is great for guitar. Its basically a springy stool type of chair that adjusts with air pressure

    I also bought a chair on guitarcenter.com that is basically a computer roller chair without arms that is great too is you want something with a back. Great if you do you guitar stuff on a desktop computer

    Welcome to the TAC community @HarryH !

    Every person has their own wants and needs when it comes to seating. I purchased a padded stool type chair from Amazon, but my go to chair of choice when playing is my dining room chair.

    These work really well for my wife and me — https://www.amazon.com/Stakmore-Solid-Folding-Chair-2-Pack/dp/B07JJM4C3B. We got ours at Costco, where they were sold individually and for about half this price, but things come and go at Costco, and at present they have gone. Any padded armless chair with a flat seat and straight back works well for me, though, unless it has wheels, in which case I end up scooting around like a sugared up six year old. Hopefully you find something that suits your preferences as well!

    Hi @HarryH and Welcome to TAC!!

    I’m always looking for some kind of comfy ergonomic guitar playing chair myself… at my age, it’s not exactly comfortable to sit and play for hours.

    I don’t have a magic amazon link to recommend, but I have found that a regular armless dining chair (without wheels) does just fine, and adding a flat pillow to sit on makes things a bit more comfy. I also use a footrest to elevate my left foot. Even so, I find that taking frequent breaks is a must. Let me know if you find a magic comfy ergonomic guitar chair we could get a group discount 🙂

    Thanks to all of you for the recommendations. I may have to try a few different types to see which works best. I suspect height of the seat will play a big part. Also, the material it’s made of. Happy Holidays to all!
