People who sit while you practice - what do you sit on? Pics appreciated.

Do you stand or sit while playing, or both?

Out there
My wife got this Gabrylly chair for the office and it has become my go to for sit down practice and gaming. Really comfortable and sturdy, and reasonably priced.

My low-back stool. It was a Costco special.
It even has a gas cylinder shock for soft landings!

Is that a Phantom, hanging up there?
A copy?
How does it play?

BTW, "back support" isn't necessarily something for your back to lean on.
I have an adjustable flat-top stool set to medium high, one foot on the floor, the other on a rung.
The guitar hangs as if I'm standing, and my back is straight.
A straight back is good.

It's a repro I got 15 or so years ago made by PGW (Jack Charles' outfit out of Clatskanie OR. If you were in Portland in the late 70/80's he was kind of ubiquitous, playing with Quarterflash & others).

Regarding playability, I like the neck & find the body surprisingly comfortable for an oddball shape, but the pickups always seemed anemic to me. I keep it out of sentimentality, plus it reminds me of Greg Kihn which is a good thing in my book.

Here's my stool sample: Tama Ergorider drum chair.

Super comfy, no arms to get in the way, height adjustable, it swivels, and it's built like a battleship. The low lumbar support makes sitting for extended periods very comfortable. I've had it 20 years and still looks new.

I refuse to call these things a "throne" because drummers are already far too consumed with delusions of grandeur :oops:

Similar, mine is a Gibraltar drum chair which also has a backrest.
