My name is Stevie Moises, I´m a woodturner and have run my own business as a master craftsman since 1988. As one of the founding members of TROYAN DRUMS, the world-renowned drum-making company, I had the privilege of accumulating extensive expertise in the building of drums and other instruments.
As a drummer and percussionist myself, I´ve been very lucky to have been on stage with many good musicians, gathering experience from innumerable concerts. It goes without saying that I´ve made my own drum sticks for many years now.
In 2002, I started developing bodhrán tippers in close cooperation with Christian Hedwitschak. Since 2004, I´ve been making all solid-wood tippers, and since 2010, also all hot rods and special effect tippers supplied by Christian Hedwitschak and myself. Today, I offer over 50 different tipper models.
Apart from tippers and drum sticks, I also make the usual items produced by woodturners such as bowls, spice mills and other home and kitchen accessories. The concave form of various models in Christian´s range of bodhráns is also shaped on my lathe.
Long, extensive tests, trial runs and collaborative efforts with professional bodhrán players are the foundation of my tipper making.
The constant further development of tippers, and striving to fulfil my customers' requirements and wishes is very important to me.
I also take great pains to ensure that my products are environmentally friendly and sustainable.
