I want to have this effect by using ABC notation:

Single-line percussion instruments

In LilyPond, I can use \new RhythmicStaff to create such a staff. What's the equivalent in ABC notation?

In ABC, use K: perc stafflines=1. (See Clefs and Transpositions in the ABC standard reference.)

For example:

X: 1
T: Percussion example
M: 4/4
L: 1/8
K: perc stafflines = 1
BB B2 B2 B/2B/2B/2B/2 |
X: 1
T: Percussion example
M: 4/4
L: 1/8
K: perc stafflines = 1
BB B2 B2 B/2B/2B/2B/2 |
