Default Gibraltar snare stand for rack only?

Hi, I've seen the Gibraltar snare stands for racks, and am wondering if you can attach that to your high hat stand or crash stand? I'm looking to set up an aux. snare (not piccolo though) to my left. Is there some other mount I can get or would that be totally unsteady? Thanks.

The one with no legs right?

That stand should work off a cymbal stand. The attachment bar looks long enough in the pics of it.
I wouldn't put it off of a cheap-o stand. You'd want a good cymbal stand to work with, but it should be just fine for what you want to do.

I knew a guy years ago who flew an aux snare off his HH stand via a clamp (I didn't really pay attention, but I'm sure the clamp was longer than normal). At this point it's worth adding that it wasn't a specialised Gibraltar stand....just the top part of an old Pearl from memory (same idea though, just using different components).

It seemed to work well for him, but I did notice that he also placed a couple of small sand bags on the opposing legs of his hat stand for added stability. No idea how necessary the sand bags were, but he had them anyway.

You can do it with a SC-EA300 extension arm from Gibraltar.

Does it have to be off a cymbal stand? I would just get a stand with legs, it's far more stable.

If you're looking for a solid snare stand from Gibraltar, look at the 6600 series stands. Solid as a rock, and I use them so I have a lot of experience with them. Never had a problem.
