IIRC, some of the industrial fittings are designed to fit pipe (nominal i.d. sizing), while others are designed to fit tubing (nominal o.d. sizing).  1.5" pipe is about 1.9", o.d., which is close to 2" tubing, but a (too) loose fit. A 50 mm clamp will work just fine on 1.5" pipe, FWIW.

Theater fly battens are very often 1.5" pipe.  USA spec aluminum truss is usually 2" tubing. "Euro" truss is 50 mm o.d.  I love standards, there are so many to choose from!

K&M makes a top hat that can bolt to a bar to make a t-bar. It is steel.
Mike at Audiopile sold me mine.

I took Debbie's idea of a keyboard soft case and can nest a pair of t-bars with 4 flat pars on each. I went to a banjo center with a tape measure and looked at them all before finding the one I wanted.

I have the same stands Steve has and love them. Outside of my ST-132 they are the sturdiest stand I own. I even use them for high speaker stands by flipping the top pole and inserting 2 ft 3/8 pole inside.

Cheaper at PSSL

Yes, that is my best stand and I'm considering getting 2 more to replace my 2 Odyssey stands. Can you look at the knobs on yours and confirm the actual brand? Mine say Accu-Stand.

Quick update...

I purchased four of the LTS-2 stands from ADJ and four of the Gator 88-key "slim" keyboard cases and couldn't be any happier. The Gator cases hold the assembled T-bars with ease, and the LTS-2 is a great overall stand.

Thanks, everyone!!! I owe you all a virtual adult beverage (or three)!

This sounds cool. What lights do you have on the T-bars that fit in a keyboard case? I think my PAR LED fixtures are too large to do that but love the idea. Their dimensions are 11.5" x 8.5" x 12.0"

Thanks for the ideas

I'm using a mix of lights... Blizzard Rock Box and the generic Chinese LED PAR lights (7x10 watt) from an earlier thread. They're nearly identical in overall dimensions and fit *perfectly* in the Slim88 cases.

We now have six of the Blizzard Storm systems.  I know it is a little out of scope for this discussion but the "wow" factor is very high with these.  They are the finest wash lights, super compact just very pricey.


As always Mike Pyle has the best deal.
