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:

    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.

              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.
