Hi! I would love to add a floating snare system to my ukulele, which I play in a percussive style. However, 10" is too wide to fit. Any chance you might build me one in a custom size? I need about 6"x2". I'm willing to pay for the customization, because I know it entails extra work for your shop. Let me know!
I have experimented with this; unfortunately I couldn't get the snare wires to respond after they were cut. The smaller wires seem too "stiff" to create the snare sound on the uke body. I've tried a full size snare attachment on a guitar body as well. The result was that the vibration from the strings through the soundboard would cause the snare wires to sound while playing the guitar. Not a pleasant sound! Haha.
Im willing to mess around with the idea more for you, because I think it would be rad! But I'm not sure it's going to work out!
What type of metal is the snare mesh! Thanks
They are steel snare wire, chrome plated.
