Hey guys, do you know if this is a huge issue? My zagane is stuck on the handle and it comes out of the neck. I am able to tighten the string without any issues though so I’m. Thinking to use a little bit of wood glue to keep the zagane in place. Any info is greatly appreciated!
The zagane are mainly there for two reasons - one is that it keeps keep the wood from wearing, but really it’s particularly there for looks
It shouldn’t be a huge issue, and if the wood glue works, all the better.
Thanks! Kyle pretty much said the same. Time to get sticky!!!
Any time! Best of luck
I wonder if crazy glue (carefully applied so as to not get any on the itomaki) might work better than wood glue.
I am on holidays, far away from my shamisen. I think Gorilla glue will be the winner. I will let you all know how it went.
Update on the Zagane! I used a light coating of Gorilla Glue and it worked like a charm! Catherine, you are absolutely right about not using the wood glue as it doesn’t bind all too well to metal.
great to hear that it worked out!
excellent idea, the gorilla glue.
