All O'Connors Tippers are made by an Irish Craftsman & bodhran player. (not imported from the far east as some are)
Made from a fine Cherry Wood with a very smooth and fine grained finish.
With Danish Oil applications for warmth of touch and protection.
With 4 ridges to aid grip and a little ornamentation at the top end for contrast and interest.
All our wood is obtained from a sustainable source with minimal carbon footprint.

Outstanding workmanship! Beautiful tipper - perfectly balanced and a dream to use! Just brilliant! Thanx so much!

Just wanted to say this tipper has exceeded my expectations. It arrived this morning and to see each dowel shaped to fit perfectly together was a fantastic surprise. I had purchased something similar for much less and have been very disappointed. Oh it plays amazing too. Thank you. Clive

I'm a beginning bodhran player teaching myself via YouTube and have little knowledge of what a tipper is "supposed" to be. I do know that I prefer this one to the traditional style one (solid with bulbous ends) that came with my bodhran. This tipper seems to give me more control. I can play faster, more dynamically, and more quietly. It is built solidly. After a couple of weeks of playing with it most days nothing has broken off or come loose. This tipper is definitely a quality product.

Great workmanship! It's really beautiful and is perfect for my bodhran. I'll be looking to this shop for future purchases.
