I'm shopping a Scared Stiff and wanted a Dancing Boogie men capability. I wanted to save the $90 to $100 they cost, being on a limited income, so I decided to try and fabricate my own. This is what I came up with. For the main boogie holder, I used 1/2" copper pipe flattened with a bench vise. I used a dremel and a drill for the rest, to cut away the material necessary to approximate the dimensions needed to work. Not too bad-looking from the player's perspective. I had the pipe and screws laying around, so it only cost me time. If a future buyer doesn't like it, it can be easily reversed.

Nice idea, getting ready to do this on mine and did not want to spend money on the kit either considering how simple it looked to come up with a home brew version. Let us know how it works out for you in the long term.

thanks for sharing, any other pics?

Nice, I think that if you have some silver spray paint around... it would look nicer.

Yes, I agree they'd look better with silver or some kind of paint on them. Some more pics, from before too.
