Rattan tipper used to play the bodhran. Several strands of rattan are wrapped, and help 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 cipin.
The comfort and grip for each tipper is 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.
