Glenarm Natural Birch 15" Tuneable Premier with a 5" rim

Glenarm 15" Premier Deluxe Tuneable Bodhran with 5" Rim - the most popular of all our tuneables.  The rim of this bodhran is a Natural Birch finish.  All tuneables come with a tuning key - hand turned handle and one standard beater.  All bodhrans are made and prefected by Paul.  He spends a lot of time on each bodhran and wants to produce the perfect bodhran for each player. 

 

Quality of skin ie light weight, medium weight or heavy weight skins can be requested.  Again the rim colour can be negotiated with Paul but basically there are 3 different colours, - ebony, medium oak and mahony Plus the Natural Birch - the most popular being the ebony. 

 Please Note:  We use Natural Goat Skin and therefore the skins vary in density and texture, some may be quite see-through and others have small markings - these are all natural and do not affect the quality of the skin.  (The white skins are processed and mainly supplied from abroad)

When placing an order please confirm via separate email  if you want a bar fitted -  otherwise your order will be completed "without a bar"

Testimonials

I am writing to say how pleased I am with my bodhran that you sent to me just before you left for Australia. When it arrived in January all I could do was a couple of quick, light strokes just to hear how the skin sounded. However, I was really pleased as soon as I opened the box. The quality of my bodhran is fantastic. Every part of it is smooth to the touch and just to handle it gives me such pleasure. I'm thrilled with the skin tone which is already rich and mellow. I'm so looking forward to being able to really explore its potential when my elbow permits. Thank you so much for discussing my purchase on the telephone, and the trouble and care you took over my bodhran. I'm so pleased I chose you to make it for me. I would recommend you, without hesitation, to anybody else that was considering buying a bodhran. Yours sincerely, Deborah Amor
