Ghost notes for drummers!

Hey there,

Been learning how to use ABC for the last couple of weeks and am loving it! Been really easy to use and helping me teach drum lessons with my own examples, its great! However I've stumbled across a problem...

In drum notation you write quieter notes (aka ghost notes) in one of two ways, either with parentheses around the note or by drawing a smaller note. I don't see any way of using parentheses around a note on abc but I can reduce the scale of a note. My question is; is there a way of reducing the scale of a single note but not the entire voice or stave?

Hope this makes sense
