Neo on the Shamibuddy?

I was wondering if I Can use a regular neo on the shamibuddy to make it look nicer and more unique?

Hi Dean!
Aaah, good question. Unfortunately, the bottom spike of the Shamibuddy is a bit too wide for a regular Neo to fit. :frowning: The bottom spike also sticks out much lower on a regular shamisen (roughly the middle of the dou) than the 'Buddy, so for both reasons it couldn’t work. I wish it could though. :slight_smile:

thank you for the info :slightly_smiling_face:! but do you think you can make a video on how to string and replace the neo the shamibuddy v2? its pretty different than the original

I’d be happy to make a video on stringing! :slight_smile: Just to clarify, by “replacing the neo”, do you mean putting it back on, or putting a different one on?

Just Replacing the little string that is the shamibuddy neo Just in case it rips I know what type of string, the exact length of string, and how to tie it properly and fit it on the end :grin:

Many thanks Kyle!

Ooooh! Great point! Yes indeed, I’ll show that as well! I should be able to make a video hopefully this coming week! :smiley:

Thanks for suggesting it, Dean!
