Bodhrán Specs


o help you choose the specifications for your desired Bodhran , to suit you physically and your style of playing .
Each drum is handmade and is unique in many ways even beyond the choices that you make , like the variation in the grain of the wood and most importantly the skin which will be as individual as the goat which bore it in life !

All my Bodhrans are currently € 350 or £ 300 regardless of size as, as much work and practically as much materials go into the smaller ones as into the larger ones .
Postage and packing varies depending on where in the world I am sending the drums but is usually ,currently between € 25 and € 50 including insurance etc’.
