Most players that I know here (Dublin/Galway) don't have any
cross-stick(s) at all on the bodhra/n, they just play it by
balancing it between their leg and the hand at the back of
the skin. They say that having a cross-stick impedes how well
they can control tone using the "skin-hand". What's the concensus
on that from bodhra/n-players on the list?
