I've known my way around skins (Noble & Cooley), for at least 40 years and still play professionally, tho' mainly studio projects now - clubs and venues have lost their luster... something to do with carrying stuff around. Maybe shoulda played flute... tho' I did start off with bass... but I evolved. Learned to drool out of both sides...

Always have brushes, snare and a cymbal whilst traveling.

Suggestions anyone??

I need a source for heavy duty, quality, whatever we call it...not flimsey... "armless" folding camp chairs. Something a guitar, mandolin or (God help us) a banjo player could sit it while playing. Wal Mart ones don't meet the quals.
Anybody got a source?

Have you checked out Camping World - seems I've seen quite a few different types there... maybe something like Cabelas - they're a pretty good outdoor outfitter... here's a link I just googled...(folding camp chairs):
http://www.koolestproducts.com/pc-23...t-n-chill.aspx

REI has something pretty similar, too.

chairs

I looked at those you mentioned...nothing sturdy and armless. Still searching.
Some one mentioned Sams chairs....they are really nice but a card table style. I want something functional and comfortable. I know they are out there.

Heck, the "sit n' chill" holds up to 350lbs & it's armless... that's pretty stable unless one is 375.... I've used a lightweight tripod style outdoors a few times with no problem and playing drums, I'm moving around alot more than a gitar player! 'course, the ground wasn't wet either...

Hi - i also went on this search several years ago and came up empty. The saggy canvas seated armless chairs are just too uncomfortable for pickers.

We now take standard metal folding chairs along for this purpose. They are really strong, can double as a warming rack over your campfire and pack flat. Best of all banjo players won't steal 'em.......

Not elegant - but highly functional and very comfortable (cheap too).

I'm acquiring an old (antique??) oak armless folding chair that in its previous life was used at the Illinois State Fair. I need it for me and my Bluegrass Banjo--God help me--I will clear the campground for sure!!

By the way, I am a beginning country fiddle player as well. I plan to clear the whole county with that!

For the love of God missy, please tell me you aren't thinking of taking up the bagpipes too!

I had considered bagpipes, but my banjo's shiny metal rim goes better with the AS.

I'm not mult-talented. Just play the pedal steel guitar. Have been playing semi professionally for over 45 years. We just finished a 8000 mile trip with our Argosy and did some playing in the Jackson Hole area. Took a light amp, a single neck steel, and my pack-a-seat. Haven't had a lot of luck in runnng into a lot of musicians at the RV parks.

Earlier in this threat someone mentioned the Light Crust Doe Boys. I grew up in Dallas and know Smokey Robinson who I believe was one of the orginal members. Also knew Ronnie Dawson of the same group. I use to go with my gather when he was buying cattle at the Ft. Work Stockyards. If memory serves me right, I belive the Light Crust Doe Boys use to play on a daily radio from the stockyard that was hosted by Ted Gooley. Now, that's going back.

Pickin' chair

While sitting (on a box) under the West Texas starry sky last week end, surrounded by some great pickers, out of the darkness came a woeful sound. Somhow a banjo picker had sneaked in his concertinas ( I perfer to call it a squeeze box) and really did a nice job. He was from Alabama. We fogave him for these many transgressions.....banjo, concertina, Alabama.
