OVERVIEW

An ambient Celtic drum with a warm tone and a few modern age enhancements.

The Meinl Irish Bodhran features an extra-deep shell for a rich, full sound, and an extra dampening layer on the rim to reduce overtones. The traditional cross brace has been removed to enable direct hand pressure on the head for contemporary pitch-bending techniques.

FEATURES
  • Extra deep shell for full sound development
  • Dampening layer around rim for reduced overtones
  • Rubber Wood (Hevea brasiliensis Muell.-Arg.)
  • Hand-selected goat head

A traditional drum used for a span of environments ranging from a battlefield to the pub. Order today.

      Comments about Meinl Irish Bodhran with Goatskin Head:

      Needed to be tuned down from how it arrived for a bit more thump, sounds terrific now. Huge sound from a fairly small drum. Looks and feels well-built.

        I bought this because I love the sound of a bodhran in a celtic group and want to learn to play it. I am not young (68) and the learning curve is a bit steep, but I love owning this instrument and playing it.

          Because of the ability to tune accurately to key a tune is, I will use this Bodhran more for recording.

              Comments about Meinl Irish Bodhran with Goatskin Head:

              I have been used to a larger bodhran, and I found this one just too small to handle well. And I saw where it was made...definitely not worth the price I paid for the workmanship...artificial wood body included. So I ordered the bodhran made by Walton Music...a beautiful instrument to look at and with a nice full sound. I learned an expensive lesson. I wouldn't call my first order a "bodhran"....just a "drum" in comparison.

              Service and delivery comments:

              I really appreciate my ability to track both shipments with the tracking info you included. Thanks.
