Hello fellow ljs here’s my first post, these are some of the various tippers I make.
A tipper is the stick used to play the Irish frame drum, the Bodhran.
They are made from woods such as Snakewood, Coromandel, Ebony, Cocobolo, African Blackwood, Pink Ivory, Brazilian Tulipwood, Kingwood, Purpleheart and Beech.
All the woods have different playing characteristics depending on the style of play.
Traditional players will often use thick heavy ended tippers of anything from Beech to Ebony and everything in between, depending on weight preference and also looks.
Modern style players tend towards slim tippers in heavy hardwoods, mainly Snakewood and Coromandel, depending on how much flex they like.
I hope you guys like them, the pictures aren’t the best…...sorry !!
