Designed in partnership with Gordon Falconer of Falconwood Tippers, my signature tipper features a powerful drumstick-style design made out of Macassar Ebony. The tipper has a unique 2 layer rubberized grip over a triangular profile for maximum comfort & control. Designed for a combination of single and double-ended playing, this versatile tipper has a flared section above the grip for ease of double-ended ornaments. The acorn-shaped tip at the bottom of the stick provides the perfect combination of tone and articulation on the bodhrán. I chose Macassar Ebony for my signature tipper as it’s dense enough to get plenty of volume and tone on the drum, but it’s also still light enough to be quite fast.
