SoundSeat, Inc.

I had the pleasure to sit down and interview SoundSeat, Inc. founder and builder, James "JR" Baker, during the 2008 Chet Atkins Appreciation Society convention, located at the Sheraton Hotel in Nashville, TN.

I first came in contact with J.R. Baker back in 2001 when he joined the Drummer Cafe community forum, and later, supplied me with a SoundSeat BreakDown Gas Lift Drum Throne which I reviewed in 2002 and still use to this day. In fact I own three of JR's chairs! Besides the Gas Lift Drum Throne, I own the Retro-Fit Seat and the Gas Lift Guitar Seat which is my main chair in my home production studio.

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of James "JR" Baker who died on Friday, August 16, 2013 in Salisbury, NC.
Rest in Peace, JR. (September 19, 1948 - August 16, 2013)

On November 11, 2013, Bretta Baker, JR Baker's wife, announced that she would continue to operate SoundSeat.
