The heavy duty swivel has a 90 degree stop on it and a spring return.   It was first made for keyboard players but since its introduction many  other musicians have decided to purchase them as well.  One use that  several steel players mentioned is if they play a second instrument they  can swivel to the left or right and play that instrument rather than  getting up and moving to another seat.  Some guitar players and bass  players not only want the swivel but a taller seat which is also  available from steelseats.

Available on all models without losing any storage space. 

The additional price for the swivel option is $100.00.

 Steel seats are a strange accessory, necessary (to me) and with  variables like cushion density and adjustability that make the "fit"  somewhat personal. I understand much of the brand loyalty.  I started  with an original Marrs ShoBud seat in the late 70's, wore it out, and  since have owned every one of the major brands and several custom jobs.  In all honesty your seat is the most comfortable and best fit for me of  any of the many I've tried.  The lite version is fantastic for smaller  gigs, and the laminate covering is perfect for road wear.  Your build  quality is stellar. So, I recommend your seats to all my students and  road buddies, and any time it comes up in discussion.  As you may  recall, I purchased my lite seat used, and you went out of your way to  help me get the legs right, even though I wasn't "really" a customer.   The steel community appreciates stellar service, and I never forget it! - Mark Van Allen

He has also played with The Supremes, as well as an impressive array of country giants at the 1994 Super Bowl half-time show featuring Clint Black, Tanya Tucker, and The Judds. In 1992, Tommy played the role  of a musician in When the Music Stopped, a season-6 episode of  In the Heat of the Night  with Carroll O'Connor and Robert Goulet. However, he says his greatest claim-to-fame came early in 1972 while playing with JD Sumner and the Stamps, when he actually shared the stage with Elvis!

 "My Lite Seat built by Joe is outstanding in many ways. It is compact,  light, sturdy, comfortable, durable, spacious, and attractively  designed. It takes up roughly half the amount of space in my SUV as my  former seat, yet still has that strong, dense cushion for which Steel  Seat is famous. Best of all, my wife can lift it...ha! Great job, Joe!" Chris LeDrew

Hi Joe,  I got my seat from you a few weeks ago and am loving it.  I prefer sitting in a natural position when I play rather than balancing on a bar stool and  my SteelSeat is the perfect height to play, sing and work floor effects comfortably. The custom compartments inside fit everything from my CD's to cables and effects perfectly, snug but easy to get everything in and out.  Your craftsmanship and attention to detail is really impressive and the seat really feels like it's built to last.  It's simply exactly what I needed.  The only thing it's missing is a cupholder.

  I love my "Steelseat" Swivel.  It allows me to play my piano sitting in the normal frontal position and, as I choose, swivel either left or right to communicate with other band members on stage with ease.  I also use my seat in my music room to swivel back and forth from piano to computer and return.  This is so very helpful when writing charts, etc.  Being a piano player, Joe customized the inside of my seat to allow me to carry charts, piano pedal and cables, etc. Thanks Joe, for building the seat that I've needed for so many years

 Great work. Very pleased at quality of construction and materials used.  The big surprise: I had been using one of those $35 folding piano stools  for the 4 years I have been playing steel and I knew my posture was not  good when playing. Sitting on my Steel-Seat, I found myself leaning  back (glad I got the backrest) and then found I could see pedals and sit  up straight and play with my arms extended in a very natural way, all  at the same time. So much more comfortable!!!       
     Thanks for a great product.  - Fred Rogan

About Us

Joe and Denise Naylor

At the age of six Joe started playing lap steel guitar. I have loved music (especially country) all my life.  At twelve, I started playing the 6-string.  Many years later I began playing the Pedal Steel guitar.  After working with Desert Rose pedal steel guitars and building other guitars. I bought steelseat.com.  Before buying steelseat I worked in the engineering field and traveled all over the USA and the World.

History of Steelseat.com

 W. C. Edger started the company in Kansas, and then a record deal forced him to sell the company.  Thom and LuAnn Beeman bought the company and moved it to Apple Valley, CA.  After Thom's passing in Feb '09, Luann and Joe Naylor discussed the continuation of the company. Joe still says, "There is a little bit of W. C. and Thom in every seat."  Rest in Peace Mr. Thom.
