Hybrid Hotrods


Wooden handle plus dowels

Hybrid Hotrods

Hotrrod tippers, i.e. tippers composed of several sticks, are among the most popular tippers of all because they produce a very powerful and rounded sound.

This type of drumstick has been used in drumming for several decades and was transferred to the bodhrán early on by various players.

We have two types of hotrods: Classic Hotrods, which consist only of rods made of different woods, and Hybid Hotrods, which consist of a wooden handle and rods made of different woods. 

Hybrid hotrods offer the possibility to have a familiar grip and always the same feel, but still achieve different sounds. Once you get used to one grip, you don't have to adjust.

Here is an overview and details of the hybrid hotrods:

MoGrip and RWE -Grip (Rolf Wagels Edition)


the grip will always feel the same

MoGrip

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 always 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.

The optimum weight and length of each type of tipper in relation to this fixed point was then determined. 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.

secure grip

RWE - Grip (Rolf Wagels Edition)

We have developed this tipper grip to provide a perfect handle for all situations and to ensure a secure grip. All RWE-Grip hotrods have the MoGrip shape, but are additionally covered with a red shrink hose. This has worked extremely well in my hands, even in very fast playing situations. The RWE-Grip allows a slightly looser grip, as nothing slips, and thus enables relaxed playing. In addition to the hotrods, we also developed a solid sankewood tipper with the RWE - Grip.

Exklusivly for bodhran-info tippermaker Stevie Moises provides the follwoing special models with the RWE - Grip:

  • RWE - Grip RockMo
  • RWE - Grip JazzMo
  • RWE - Grip SlapMo

HED Tipper - IncrHEDible (Christian Hedwitschak Special)

perfectly matched

HED Tippers - IncrHEDible (Christian Hedwitschak Spezial)

The combined experience of Christian Hedwitschak and Stevie Moises is reflected in every aspect of this product.

Length, weight, hitting weight, and balance point were meticulously calculated and perfectly matched to each other. These optimal physical properties make for a tipper that practically plays by itself :)

The grip design is based on the proven design of the enchantHED solid wood tipper, but was adapted to suit the dynamic properties of a "hot rod tipper" – which are quite different from those of a tipper made of on piece of solid wood. The grip is made of flame maple, a wood that is stiffer and more fine-pored than the more flexible and coarse-pored ash wood used for the enchantHED tipper. The shape of the grip is characterized by its oval cross section in the middle, and round cross sections at the top and bottom. This, in combination with its freely adjustable rubber rings, makes this grip suitable for all playing styles.

The HED tippers are carefully handcrafted by Stevie Moises in Bavaria, Germany, using sustainable raw materials. Its complex handcrafting process, high-quality material, and many years of meticulous development make each HED tipper a valuable and unique item.
