        Comments about Waltons Walton Music Bodhran WM1900 Irish Hand Drum:

        Learning to play it from Youtube tutorials and experimenting on my own. Really having fun with it. I've always wanted to play a drum and this bodhran is ideal. It's easy to handle, not too loud and besides that, I have a Celtic heritage.

              Quality frame and skin, great sound. The tipper is unfinished and flimsy, but it does the trick.

                The looks and feel of this bodran are beautiful. The factory tipper is smaller then I like, but that's an easy fix. Looking forward to bringing a Celtic flavor to the Worship team I play percussions with.

                    You have to be careful with the instrument, especially with the leather because the weather can affect the sound. I have another drums with skin, and I discovered that at least this bodhran is a little delicate (just a little). You may need another tipper, but is good for start. If you prefer slender tippers, this is great.
                    The bodhran looks better in person than the picture.

                      Removed the stick that spans the shell (I prefer unrestricted hand movement on skin underside) and treated the head with leather treatment containing mink oil. The head treatment loosened the over-tight 'ringy' head to a nice warm tone. Very nice for the price.

                      Comments about Waltons Walton Music Bodhran WM1900 Irish Hand Drum:

                      this is a perfect Bodhran to start off with, I'd recommend to buy a different tipper but the one it comes with isn't bad. Gets good sound out of the skin if you get your hand placed correctly, but other than that it is a very good bodhran.
