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.



Paul, Just letting you know the two drums arrived safely and we are thrilled. I didn't realize the privilege we we accorded to have custom drums made by the a legend. They will get good care, and I am slowly learning bit by bit, u-tube only is the nearest teacher at 400 miles away. With Luck and Grace in a couple of years we may be back over for a festival, lessons, and get to see you again.
