Setting layer scale and symbology

Is it possible to set the visible scale of a layer using ArcPy? What i'm aiming to do is apply the symbology from one layer to a number of other layers but vary the scale at which each layer is visible using Arcpy

For example, we have 5 feature classes essentially showing the same data at different resolutions e.g 1m,10m, 100m. I want to create a layer file for one feature class, then using arcpy assign this symbology to create layer files for the other feature classes but at the same time alter the display scale depening on the resolution
