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.

Testimonials

Just to let you know my bodhran arrived this morning and I am so pleased with it-it really is a beautiful instrument, thank you so much! My mum was here at the time and so it lead to talk of our Irish family and my mum’s childhood. If you don’t mind can I please put a link to your site on my blog and website? I have already had a friend looking at your bodhrans and I do like to spread the word when I receive something so special. Thank you again Lee
