    3It's okay for what it is....
    By Dale Mc
    Not thrilled with the packaging, since it came in a padded envelope; I thought there should have been either a dowel rod taped to it, or cardboard tube around it to protect it more from bending or breaking in transit, but mine made it through my mailbox pretty well (envelope was bent just above the end of the tipper -- thankfully no breakage at the end.
    The tipper itself is pretty good, it's an effect. Not quite a brush sound on a bodhran, but...
    I found one of the bamboo skewers (yeah, it's made out of bamboo skewers!) had NOT been cut or sanded to match the others, and the skewers are NOT glued together under the wrap tape...they can be moved around, which then moves the cut and sanded sides out of alignment, but it can be twisted and re-aligned.
    Here's the bottom line... if you're lazy, go ahead and get it...just find the best deal so you don't pay more than the price of the tipper in shipping!!!

    If you're not, or are very crafty you can DIY as bamboo skewers are available at Dollar Tree or dollar deals, etc... for ...well, if you have to ask....a dollar plus local tax. (there's about 25 in a package). Add glue, sandpaper and either grip tape or string if you're really crafty, and about an hour of work...
    I'm not -- I did make my own, but I went ahead and bought one as well...and I use it....

    If you want an inexpensive, non boutique brush tipper, that you don't have to make yourself, this is it.

    I like the tipper, as it is different but it wasn't quite what I expected.

    By Matt
    Biggest waste of money you can go to the dollar store and buy a package of skiers and make about six of these for only one dollar
