See pics - Calling all the crafty folks. Any suggestions or work arounds to make something else work? Luckily I don’t really need to replace them but if I ever did/do how the heck would I go about it?

Very cool drum.
Hard to say on the wires.
Perhaps if you find wires with a length you can work with maybe you could fashion some end pieces out of plastic to match the originals and Epoxy them on top of the existing end pieces on the wires/then re drill to match.

That’s kind of what I thought too. I was just wondering if anyone had ever attempted this with any success. Thanks
