Re-launch of our New Webpage

From August 2012 Paul McAuley Bodhrans have re-launched their new up-dated webpage featuring their full range of bodhrans.  All our bodhrans are made from start to finish by Paul and most are specially comissioned to purchasers specification. 

All tuneable bodhrans are finished to a high standard and as a rule do not come with a cross bar, so if you want one please confirm with Paul  by email or phone.   A tipper/beater and a tuning key with a wooden, hand-turned handle are included in the price. 

We offer 2 sizes in our Fixed skin bodhrans - a Glenariffe 15" and a Glentaisie 18" - these can be personalised with a simple Celtic design, name of birth, wedding or basically any date of importance.  These designs are hand completed by Paul and will only wear off with constant playing. 

We use goat skins and try, where possible, to source skins from our local Lambeg makers and hand pick skins to suit each individual choice.  Rims can be finished in three basic finishes, ebony, mahogany and natural oak so again just confirm with Paul your choice.
