Scaffold Clamp Drum Rack

Can you build a drum rack out of scaffold clamps? Are there any manufacturers that produce the right adapters for drum mounts. I think scaffolds are 1". Also, if so what kind of pipe would you use, is scaffold pipe overkill? Could you use some other type of tubing, that is lighter and looks better?

Yamaha's old racks had 1" pipes, I believe. I think the old Collarlock racks did too. May have been 1.25" though

if you're never going to move it, scaffold pipe could work. But it's typically much thicker and heavier than the thin-walled chrome steel pipe used in drum racks. I would not recommend using it to gig with, unless you have your own road crew to move it for you.
