A bodhrán is an Irish frame drum consisting of a circular wooden frame covered with a goatskin head on one side. It is played by striking the skin with a small wooden stick known as a bodhrán beater, tipper or cipín. The other side of the drum is open-ended allowing one hand to be placed against the inside of the drum head to control pitch and timbre. This versatile musical instrument is the most popular Irish percussion instrument today and one of the most recognisable frame drums in the world.
