The chair is amazing and definitely will pass on this company for their products to other producers. Thank you guys for putting out great products.

So I could barely find any reviews on this desk chair before purchasing. After assessing my options I took the plunge and received it (U.S) with in about a week and a half. To my surprise it arrived at my curb in a semi truck, not your typical UPS truck.
pictured: is my very first impression of the build quality. This is the weld job for the "feet" part of the chair. even though this center part gets covered by a decorative plastic cap, I was a little disappointed in the messy weld for a chair in such price range. Albeit, that's admittedly a petty complaint but the armrests have a similar and more conspicuous weld spot. The assembly was very quick and easy. No missing parts or complications of any kind. Took under a half hour to unbox and assemble by myself.
Once installed I took her for a test drive with my Commander V2 it fit well. the wheels rolled smoothly even though they're plastic and seemingly cheap. It truly works on carpet/rugs. I'm impressed with the balance design. It's actually difficult for me to tip the chair over when trying. I do only weigh about 140lbs. but still worth mentioning.
Another gripe I have noticed is one other producers will surely agree with me on: when leaning forward from reclined position the leather from the back and seat rubs consistently and somewhat loudly. I've thought to try some kind of lubricant. But am wary of harming the leather.
The biggest question on my mind when choosing this chair was it's compatibility with guitar. Since it's designed for music engineers and has forward/backward adjustable armrests, I thought maybe this chair would be better than alternatives because of this. But after a week or so with the armrests, I decided to remove them and now I'm very happy and comfortable when tracking guitars.
With my negatives out of the way, let's mention the positives!
this chair is really comfortable and supportive in the lower back. I tend to slouch and practice poor posture. I have been using it for gaming, watching YouTube, producing music. I honestly have never had a desk chair in this price range before but this totally met my expectations in terms of comfort. the lower back arch looks a bit extreme but It's not intrusive at all, for me anyway.
In terms of looks, I'm very happy that I purchased this chair. my back certainly is.
Don't expect this chair to be perfect. like Studio Desk's other products, it is nice but still over priced.
hope this helps anyone else shopping for a desk chair.
