This Bodhran Tipper is made of Shesham (Indian Rosewood) and ribbed. One end is more pointed and slit into four sections, the other end is smooth and straight. A dozen or more ridges in the middle of the shaft keep this tipper from sliding in your hand as you play. Overall length is approximately 10 inches.
The tipper is swung back and forth against the head of a Bodhran to create lively rhythmic patterns.
The comfort and grip for each tipper is unique. You can also expect different sounds from different styles of tipper. So try a few!
A tipper is also called a bone, beater or cipin.
Length = 10"

Note: Each tipper is made from solid wood and hand turned on a lathe, therefore the profiles of the ends may vary slightly from the photograph, as well the color of the wood.
