See above.


Probably not more than £50 to be honest. Will see if Ikea still has anything. My suround sound amp is doing fine at the moment.

The height is 43cm and IMO it looks really nice :)
The magazine holder is a bonus.

I am afraid I do not have the required skills. I bought it:

Have this one for all my cabs. Taito stool height, back support and nice foot-rest. Love it. :awe:

Got it in a container deal from Japan. Had never seen it before.

I stub my toe so hard on that clear stool. :oops:

Having recently got 2 used velvet taito stool to compare with my 2 black faux leather taito stools, I think the black ones are worth every penny. The velvet ones do have a little more character, especially because mine are blue and red, which just goes too perfectly with P1 & P2 in most shmups.

That looks pretty nice.

It folds up, or it could double up as a storage box as well.

I've been undecided on one for my cab, I'm just using a tatty fold up at the moment (although that does have some back support). This is cooler though!

Been using Ikea Frosta stools for years. I think I got them not too long after I got my cab, so coming up on about 10 years now. Unfortunately they're not sold in the US anymore for whatever reason, although there are some other companies that sell similar ones for a bit more. Decided to do a little project with them recently, from this:

To this:

One problem I just noticed though (besides a bunch of little screw ups with the paint), damn things are whiter than the cab.

I managed to pick up one of these for under a tenner, only problem was ... the colour;

I don't care though as they fold up in 5 seconds and get put out of the way when I'm done.

IKea seems a popular choice. I also use a couple of stools £12 each.

That looks great! The sharper angles really go with the Aero. 8-)
