O'Connors Irish Bodhran Tipper Beater - Blackthorn 10"
O'Connors Irish Bodhran Beater Tipper Stick, made from Glens of Antrim Irish Blackthorn by an Irish craftsman.
Finished with Danish Oil for a warm feel and subtle sheen.
This is a unique tipper with a number of naturally occurring dark spots and one small area of bark at one end. It has cherry shaped, or dumbell shaped ends which are great for playing and also for looks.
Length 10" (inches)
Each Tipper is individually made and bears the rugged texture and markings of the Blackthorn (safe and smooth for your Bodhran)
The Tipper is also known as a cipin in irish.

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.
