You’ll learn the up-beat, down-beat and the roll as well as jig-timing and reel-timing along with extra features such as how to get the most from your goatskin and an extensive introduction to the many beaters and tippers available; invaluable for any beginner player.

This 14” tuneable bodhrán by Paraic McNeela produces a rich tone and is not intrusive when playing in sessions. These bodhráns are strongly recommended for intermediate players who don't want to take over the show. Instead, it produces a beautiful soft tone that can't but sound great and bring the session together. The four inch rim has an added layer of wood to provide extra strength while tuning, and a T-bar and arm cut-out for even more playing comfort. The T-bar is removable if preferred. Paraic's trademark tuning system, which has evolved enormously in the past fifteen years, provides unbeatable (pardon the pun!) tone control and flexible volume, making it perfect for every playing situation. With its beautifully finished signature black frame and the hand-cured goat skin, this is a bodhrán made for life and comes taped around the edges for a deeper bass and richer tone.
