Tipper - enchantHED

Written by

EnchantHED tipper


ONE tipper to make you happy!

It’s the magical, the phenomenal, the feels-like-it’s-playing-itself, the fantastic, the revolutionary... the fun-fecking-tastic enchantHED tipper!

The only "normal wood tipper" I personally use is the result of over 15 years of tipper development together with Stevie Moises.

It’s a LIGHT tipper with the power of a heavy one. Perfectly balanced, weighted teardrop head, OVAL grip shape with adjustable rubber rings. The amount of bass for such a light and thin tipper is just surprising!
Suitable for all playing styles. Made of figured ash. A hard, light wood with perfectly balanced flexibility.

... enchantHED!

It is a beautifully balanced tipper weighted to perfection. The oval grip I really like with a thicker diameter for holding it and the thinner neck and head to give a lovely sharp, bouncy feel and sound. When I tried it for the first time I demanded that I get the first one when it became available. Highly, highly recommend it

Conor Martin (All Ireland Champion Bodhran Player 2013, bodhrán player of "Danceperados of Ireland")

"I am really enjoying this new tipper – it is well-balanced, playful, and sounds great through the entire range of my drum."

Andy Kruspe, bodhrán/percussion performer and educator

Client Feedback:


Benedict Kutzer (‚Bene‘, Breaking Strings):

GRIP: "Der Grip des entchantHED ist sehr gut gemacht, er eignet sich prinzipiell mehr für Baby Grip Spieler als Pencil Grip Spieler, obwohl beides gut spielbar ist. Beim Pencil Grip neigt er bei mir lediglich dazu, sich um die eigene Achse zu drehen. Beim Baby Grip lässt er sich meiner Meinung nach besser greifen als die meisten anderen Tipper und passt sich äußerst bequem ein, reibt nicht und sitzt absolut sicher in der Kuhle."
BALANCE: "Die Balance des entchantHED ist phänomenal. Schnelle Rolls lassen sich genauso leicht spielen wie langsamere single end/top end Triplets oder andere Standardpatterns. Der Tipper spielt sich quasi von selbst. Der Metallkern ist hier genau richtig platziert, um ein angenehmes, rundes und perfekt ausbalanciertes Spiel zu ermöglichen."
SOUND: "Holztipper sind eben Holztipper, in Irland mag man sie mehr, in Deutschland mag man eher Rods – für mich galt das bisher ebenso, doch der entchantHED ist für mich nicht zuletzt durch seine gute Spielbarkeit eine echte Innovation. Der Sound ist knackig, gerade Höhen kommen erwartungsgemäß extrem trocken und präzise, aber auch der Bass kommt überraschenderweise nicht zu kurz Ein starkes Stück Holz!"

MOpHed – The Practice Pad for your Tipper Hand

Need to warm up before a gig? Want to practice at home but your neighbours are a bit on the sensitive side? No matter if you’re at home, a hotel, or stuck in a traffic jam, the MopHed lets you train your tipper hand almost anywhere and anytime! This handy tool is a must-have for anyone who likes to use every spare minute to get in some practice!

  • Natural skin allows for a realistic playing feel
  • Natural rubber damping ensures a low sound
  • Lightweight, easy to store and carry
  • Elastic strap makes it effortless to hold
  • Obvious sound when you miss the playing surface, and an ideal surface size help you to develop precise playing


Diameter 17.5 cm
Playing surface 14.4 cm
Thickness 1.9 cm
Weight approx. 170 g

Due to the natural properties of the skin and the way it’s mounted onto the pad without the tension it would normally have on an actual bodhrán, the skin might have the occasional crease or dent. This does not affect the quality of the practice pad and is no reason for rejection!

...and what does the name mean ??? :)
Practise Pad, co-developed with Christian Hedwitschak... HED. Therefore not PAD but pHED. Made by Stevie Moises... MO. So: MOpHed :)

HotRod tippers are composed of several rods and have become very popular because of the powerful sound they can produce. This type of stick has been used for decades by kit drummers, and it didn't take long before it found its place in the wold of bodhrán playing.

And so it is with great pride that we present our newly developed HotRod bodhrán tippers:
The HedRods!


"What is the difference between the HedRods and other models?" 

Starting from scratch, we have questioned and optimised every single detail of construction and have emerged with a variety of tippers that provide the player with different sound variations but have the same structure. Therefore, all HedRods have a similar feel, and the changing from one to another requires less effort yet achieves a totally different sound. It is importantly a product which is suitable for all common playing styles and grips without limitations.

The name says it all! 
The way in which the model name works is as follows: HR refers to HedRod, the subsequent digit refers to the diameter of the rods in millimetres and and the final designation refers to the shape of the head, a critical detail to the desired sound.

The length of the HedRods is approximately 24.5 cm. Special designs are available at!

Cut and dismantled: A hedrod's inner workings


The handle is a new development: 

In order to facilitate every playing/grip style, we wanted to create a grip which offers controlled handling without limiting the player to a certain playing technique, no matter if it is held in the middle, at 2/3 of its length or close to the end.
We achieved this with the Precision Control Grip: This consists of a thin net under aspecial shrink tube which provides comfortable support, it is unobtrusive and nonrestrictive. Two adjustable rubber rings on the handle can be positioned individually to serve either as a quick positioning of the handle point, or as a grip area boundary.
The position and length of the grip area is deliberate and was found in terms of playability, sound and comfort as "just right". This area is also glued so that the rods can never slip orchange position. Because only the attack sound, rather than the typical hotrod sound is heard when playing double ended triplets with the upper end of the tipper, we decided that the HedRod should be unidirectional. Therefore the upper end of the tipper is solidly constructed regarding to the attack sound.

The basic materials we use for all models are top quality, hand selected wooden rods (beech/walnut/bamboo) indifferent diameters and bamboo sticks.

Each beech stick is individually oiled and waxed. The bamboo sticks are left natural.

The arrangement of the rods depends on the model and is either parallel to the axis of the tipper or slightly twisted in order to achieve a different click behaviour.

3-O-Ring-Setting: Compared to other hotrods, the HedRods have an additional rubber ring. This provides much more flexibility in the adjustment of the handling and has direct influence on the sound.

What exactly can be adjusted by these rings? Hotrods provide the ability to change the subjective perception of material behavior during play. A Hotrod always feels a little "softer" than a tipper made of solid wood. This property can be changed in asurprisingly large range:

The front ring: this is used to set the "click behaviour" of the rods, the farther forward it sits, the less the rods move during impact, the typical clicking noise decreases. Of course it then follows that the click sound increases the further you move the ring towards the handle, because the rods have more freedom to move. Depending on the design of the rods, a sound similar to that produced by jazz brushes can be achieved.

The two rear rings: You can determine how solid the Hedrod feels by adjusting these. For example, if the front ring is at the very end of the HedRod and the two rear rings close to the handle, a very clear attack close to that of a solid tipper will be the result, however, it will still have the softer feel of a hodrod. The reason for this is that the rods can move considerably between the foremost O-ring and the top of the handle - this causes energyt o be dampened and you will feel a less attacking response. At the same time, less ‘unsprung mass’ hits the drum head and a lower bass volume is the result. In short, you can now adjust the movement by moving the rings.

Compared to other hotrod models on the market this additional rubber ring provides the ability to achieve a feeling that almost equals that of a solid wood tipper, because it is possible to make the full length of the HedRod almost completely immobile.

Hedwitschak Drums recommend Moises Tippers !

Stevie Moises, who’d been making tippers with and for me for over 12 years, has now taken over the tipper business entirely. Since January 1, 2015, he’s now also been taking care of end-customer business. The HedRod series is the only exception and will still be distributed by me.


Please check out his website:

I’m convinced that the new arrangement Hedwitschak = bodhráns, Moises = tippers will bring only advantages for you und us. 

Stevie and I will, of course, continue working closely together and developing new projects.

I think with the continuous improvement of tippers as well as experiments and research, and above all, with his individual, highly impressive way of playing the bodhrán, Stevie has become THE tipper maker. Please give him the same support you’ve given me with my products, as he deserves it – he’s da maaan!
