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 tuneables please specify if you want a single-bar or not.

"I received my Glencloy bodhran in the mail the other day. When I opened the carrying bag and saw my bodhran, I instantly fell in love with it. What a gorgeous bit of workmanship! The finish of the bodhran is the work of a master craftsman. The meticulous attention to detail is the work of an artist. But the sound of the bodhran. This is the work of a man who knows what he is about and how to build a bodhran! The deep resonance and the wide range of tonal effects set this bodhran apart as a serious, world class instrument. If you are looking for a bodhran for any reason, then you need look no further. Stunning and beautiful, an exciting and satisfying sound, prompt and reliable service, and a reasonable price. Play on!"
