Rattan tipper used to play the bodhran. Several strands of rattan are wrapped, and held tight by a band, to make one slightly flexible tipper. Slide off the smaller restraining band and it almost gives a brushed or snare sound. This beater can be used either way.

The tipper is swung back and forth against the head of a Bodhran to create lively rhythmic patterns. A tipper is also called a: bone, beater or Vipin.

The comfort and grip of each tipper are unique. You can also expect different sounds from different styles of tipper. So try a few different styles!

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.

9.5″ long x 5/8″ in diameter.
