Item details

Bodhrán tippers/Beaters for beginners or professionals. These tippers are ca. 9" long with heavier ends to allow a solid beat of the drum and achieve triplets easily (using both ends of the stick). Many also have rings on the shaft to allow the tipper to be held easily without slipping while still having a smooth finish to allow for adjustment in the hand without missing a stroke if necessary. I make them here in Milltown Co. Kerry home to the World Bodhrán Championships. I use a variety of finishes including Friction polish, Sanding sealer, Bees wax and Carnuba wax to achieve a smooth, long lasting finish. I prefer to make items to order to best suit the customers needs. The beaters are perfectly suited to beginners, hobbyists and professionals who like a louder sound or prefer to play without an amplifier. Please feel free to message me with any queries you may have regarding these items.....

Average review
I recently purchased a bodhran, but it was unclear if it came with a tipper. I found GrainOfSense, and contacted Tom. As a novice, Tom answered my questions and crafted a beautiful tipper for me to play my new bodhran. When my drum arrived, it did come with a very plain, unfinished tipper. This tipper could NOT hold a candle to Tom's finished piece. Tom's tipper is much easier to handle and it was passed around at the music meetup with envy. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TOM AS A CRAFTSMAN! Great Shop, great product, and great people!?
