I picked up a used Dixon throne yesterday for 30 bucks. Not a bad deal. I needed something sturdier as my previous thrones haven't been all that great - too small, not adjustable enough, stripped threading where the wing bolt attaches to the shaft, etc - and this one seemed to fit the bill. The only bit of attention it needed at point-of-sale was a replacement wing bolt where the supports meet at the base of the shaft between the legs, so the ever-useful Jason at the shop found a spare DW wing bolt - good as new. And now my throne is 1% DW - classy! Big Smile

I think it's this one: http://intl.playdixon.com/Hardware/Detail.aspx?CID=4&ID=122852

Threaded shaft adjustment is much better than fixed-hole shaft positioning, in my opinion. I actually had a fixed-hole seat collapse under me in a recent gig. Bizarre.
