Many a time I've attempted to play in places without a suitable chair. Of course, chairs with arms are the worst, but too small-armed chairs and various high stools can be uncomfortable/inappropriate for playing UPs.

Any recommendations for portable chairs/stools? Maybe a foldable version that can be packed in the case with the set ? :)

Cheers,

Mike

I use a folding keyboard stool:

This one is a whopping $16 on eVilbay.
If the height is not adjustable, make sure you try it first. Just an inch or two either way make a huge difference after a long sit. Some drummer's stools have a small back support which looks tempting...

I use this one, a Proline PL1250: http://prolinestands.com/pl1250-keyboard-bench-memory-foam/

It is height adjustable, and the memory foam is easy on the bum. But it will set you back $92 US on Amazon.com.

My first pipe instructor always took a cane-stool to highland games

Never used one myself, but I think they're pretty ingenious. There are several versions of this concept if you look around.

Each time I see the thread title I think 'Piper's Chair', before reverting to 'not the one they are asking about'. Sunday morning brain.

[channeling Rory] “Piper’s stool” is a recognized medical condition, for which is described the orthopedic piper’s chair.
