Bodhran Tipper Spotlight & Give-Away

by MichelleStewart on December 14, 2012

I can’t boast to have as big or as fancy a bodhran tipper collection as many of my students, but I AM the proud owner of one very unique beater I have yet to see anywhere else.

I’m referring to this very special moose antler tipper that was gifted to me by one of my online students and dear friend, Dean, from Newfoundland.

The hand-carved bald eagle ends only add to its uniqueness.

I’ve been inspired by another one of my student’s tipper collections in my previous blog posts “I Have Bodhran Tipper Envy’ PART 1 & PART 2, that featured my friend Lauraileen’s impressive collection.

Send In Your Tipper Collection Pic To Be Entered In The Give-Away

I want to start an album entitled ‘Tipper Collections From Around The World’ and I would love to see your collection.

Everyone who sends in a photo of their tipper collection (big or small) by Thursday, February 14, 2013 will be entered into a draw to win a special gift from me. If you could include a description of each tipper, listing left to right makers if possible, your name, where you’re from and any other additional that would be great. Please send all entries directly to me at with the subject line ‘Tippers Of The World’.

The goal is simply to share our mutual passion for bodhran and possibly even enlighten others about tippers from the world with your own tipper collection.

Keep Calm and Drum On!
