BT3. Three-knob beater. This is a popular beater because it gives the greatest volume of sound of all our beaters, and is solid and weighted in your hand. Our talented young bodhran-playing friend in Texas thinks this is the greatest beater that was ever made, and he used to practically strong-arm our customers at the Arlington Scottish show to buy it! Coloring can vary. 9 1/2 " long. NA
BT5. Rosewood beater with double raised circles in center. 9" long. NA
