Very powerful HedRod with focus on lower frequencies and good clicking. Twisted dowel positioning. Nice handling thanks to the MoGrip and full sound. The stability and elasticity of the dowels is tested individually with a specially designed test method. Only absolutely flawless dowels have what it takes to become a MoGrip tipper! All dowels are treated with a hard oil wax finish.
What makes the MoGrip series special is that the player gets the same shape of handle for all types of tippers! Regardless of whether you use a hot rod, a click tipper, a brush or simply a classic stick, the grip will al-ways feel the same.
A ball-shaped part in just the right position – the MoBall – makes sure the tipper doesn’t slip, which is particularly handy for beginners using this playing style. The MoBall allows you to hold the tipper loosely and therefore makes it easy to control, which is very important for this way of playing.
I then determined the optimum weight and length of each type of tipper in relation to this fixed point. For weight distribution reasons, the MoGrip handles have a small hollow space at the back. This is necessary to balance the total weight in relation to the weight of the head. To give this hole another useful purpose, it is tuned to concert pitch (A = 440 Hz). ;-)
Thanks to the stability of the wooden handle and the resulting smaller length of the individual dowels of the MoGrip hot rod tippers, only one single O-ring is required to adjust the click behaviour.
