Below you will find our shortlist of chairs for musicians in order of cheapest with the least functionality to expensive with the most amount of features. 

Amazon Basics Low-Back

Amazon Basics Low-Back

The Amazon basics low back chair is likely the best musician chair for those on a budget. It's affordable, has a minimalist design and sadly as a result is provides an inadequate lumbar support and is unsuitable for prolonged usage. It has decent wheels to move around your workspace. It may not be the ideal choice for a primary studio chair used full-time. If you require an additional seat for partners or a chair without armrests for recording or playing guitar, it is worth considering. Keep in mind, though, that it may not provide enough back support for longer sessions.

Secret Lab chair

Secret lab musician gaming chair

The Secret Lab chair is great for taller individuals as it provides a high back support and has numerous customisation options available. It is a gaming chair and so the look may not appeal to everyone and the armrests do not fold down. This chair is marketed as a gaming chair, but is also an excellent studio chair considering that both gamers and producers spend long hours sitting in front of their setups. These chairs can recline up to 165 degrees and are wide enough to allow you to sit cross-legged if you wanted to. You can comfortably spend entire days working on music in this chair but you probably shouldn't because exercise is always good!

Herman Miller Aeron Chair

Herman Miller Aeron Chair
The Herman Miller Aeron is a widely recognized chair, renowned for its remarkable comfort during long periods of use. Its exceptional design has earned it a place in the Museum of Modern Art. It's a popular choice in boardrooms and recording studios worldwide for its mesh back and seat that ensure breathability and ergonomic design that provides long-term comfort. The chair is adjustable to suit every need. The Herman Miller Aeron comes with a hefty price tag, similar to that of a decent computer when purchased new. Nevertheless, investing in this chair is a wise decision, especially for those seeking the best chair for music production.
