  • Aluminum Tubes

    Does anyone have a decent source for aluminum rack tubes? I want to add a couple of arms to my existing Roland rack. I know Drumbalaya used to carry them but that does me no good without a time machine. A search turned up lots of info on PVC and steel, but no aluminum.

    Thanks

    I've got some short pieces of Hart rack tubing that I no longer need. I think they are a brushed steel as opposed to aluminum though. Great stuff however.

      Thanks Chris, but actually I need something around 2 feet long as I want to make some vertical posts.

        I've got two 2 foot pieces, two three foot pieces and one four foot (approx.). They were all done custom for me.

          I'm thinking you could order them from musiciansfriend or other online store and use a reciprocating saw and cut to length.

            Attached is a pic of the extra tubes I have.

            Also, I measured and the lengths are:
            • (2) 22.0"
            • (2) 30.5"
            • (1) 36.0"

              I'm interested in the 1.5" cross clamps(I need two)...and maybe two 30.5" tubes....if you will sell to just anybody that is

                Of course! Let me find out what Jim decides on tubes (we've been PM'ing) and I'll get back to you shortly.

                  I think it is reasonable to assume that Chris tells people that certain "items" of his are longer than they actually are. ;-)

                    Jim decided to take the three longer tubes and two clamps. So I will only have the two shorter tubes and two clamps left I'm afraid.

                    I have been known to "stretch it" occasionally.

                      That's fine by me, just don't "stretch it" in public.

                          If no one wants the shorter ones I could use them.
