Glenariffe 15" bespoke for different individuals

These bodhrans were comissioned for Pauls first cousin now living abroad.  All our 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.  The 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.  The Glenariffe 15" is fitted with a single-bar.   All tuneable and indeed fixed skins bodhrans come complete with one beater and our tuneables also have a unique tuner which has a wooden hand-turned handle.


Bags are optional and for a small cost they are excellent for storage or for taking to gigs or sessions and most are also lockabe.  

Tuneables usually do not have a design but again if a small design is wanted contact Paul for advise.



Padded Bodhran Carrying Bag I am loving my bodhran! I am practicing and it is coming SLOWLY - I am not a fast learner! It’s when I try to pick up the pace I go to pieces, scratching and banging away! I haven't treated the skin yet as I am a bit scared to.....but it does feel very taught and dry. Please can you advise if I need to treat it and what is the best way? I keep the drum in the lounge with my fiddle - so there's central heating and an open fire during these cold months.
