        Comments about Meinl Bodhran Tipper:

        I haven't used this tipper long enough to comment on its longevity, but it seems to be well-made. I prefer a lighter weight tipper, and this one is quite heavy, so it is cumbersome for my playing style. If you like a more substantial tipper, this is a good one.

        FT-1 Tpper for Bodhran drum

            Comments about Meinl Bodhran Tipper:

            As my hands get older and stiffer I find that the lighter weight tippers seem to get lost in my hands. I needed something thicker and with more weight so I could feel the tipper rock in my hand. also the larger heads make for a better and fuller tone on the bodhran. The FT-1 does the trick for these old hands and the center swell keeps the tipper from shifting in my hand when I do a heal kick with the lower part of my hand. It is well made and should last atleast as long as I do.

            Comments about Meinl Bodhran Tipper:

            I was at a session the other night and decided to try out this tipper. It was fine at first, nice and light without loosing any sound.however, as the night went on, I noticed that paid t was rubbing off of the tipper and onto the skin. The rigges are also placed right in the grip which gave me blisters. I ultimately switched back to my old tipper. I wouldn't use this tipper for a full session, but a begginer shouldn't have these problems. I think you could get a better tipper for the same price though.
