Glencloy 15" with a 6" rim front view

This is our Glencloy 15" bodhran with a 6" rim and can be finished with a natural or ebony stain rim.  These bodhrans have 6 tuners and the skin can be hand picked to suit the individuals choice ie light to heavy skin - the skins we use are all goat skin and some are sourced from the Lambeg drum makers.  A cross-bar can be fitted and again this is totally removable if preferred.  All tuneables come with one beater and one tuner with a wooden hand-turned handle made by Paul.

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)

A bag is a good idea for both storage and also for taking to gigs or lessons.  Contact Paul for more details
