To 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 !
Constructed from the best quality Scandinavian birch plywood.

All drums are fitted with a set of eight Forkner/Barlett hand-tunable tuners.
