Some years back I was able to find & buy anodized black 1-1/2" tubing for my Yamaha edrum set. It matched the original tubing perfectly, in size & and in color. I purchased two 5 foot long tubes so I could extend my rack system upwards. Last year I wanted to find one more 5 foot long tube, and searched for quite a while on line & couldn’t find any lengths like this, that were anodized black. No, they were NOT official Yamaha tubes!
I have no clue who & where I purchased this from, all I remember I bought it on-line…or was it by phone?..either way it was shipped to me. It could have been a music retailer? I think I MAY have called around to various music retailers that would sell edrum kits.
For now, what I’m doing it ‘stacking’ vertically, one longer Yamaha tube on top of one shorter Yamaha tube (originals from DTXpress racks) and using a “T” coupling to join them. This T coupling has a tube extending to the left as well. It’s actually holding up very well & stable now, but I’d prefer to use one single long lenth like I have on two other sections.
I recall using my original Yamaha DTXPress kit as it came, and when jamming the rack would jiggle like crazy! Joining a few DTXpress kits, and rack parts together, along with my two vertical 5 foot tubes at center area’s left/right, it doesn’t budge a bit!
Anyone have a clue where to buy anodized black 1-1/2" tubing in long lenths?
