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 - the most popular being the ebony.  All tuneable and indeed fixed skins come complete with tuners and one beater. 

For orders of tunables please specify if you want a single-bar or not.

 

Bags are optional and for a small cost they are an excellent storage or for taking to gigs or sessions and most are also lockabe.   Tunables usually do not have a design but again if a small design is wanted contact Paul for advise.
