McNeela bodhrán goatskins are always sustainably sourced as a by product from healthy animals, carefully selected and examined for quality. They produce great depth of sound and are easy to tune.
As our goatskin is a natural product no two pieces are alike so your skin is unique to you with all of its own natural characteristics. These can potentially include visible pores, minor differences in thickness across the skin plus colour variations. Natural goatskin, like our own skin, will benefit from conditioning from time to time so we recommend you use a bodhrán conditioning cream like DrumDiddly to keep your skin flexible and protected and elongate its playing life.
The skins are naturally hand-cured in lime, which gives that all-important bass tone, then 'pickled' to close up the pores and finally stretched and left to sun dry, achieving a lovely clean 'bleached' finish.
They give great attack and a fast response and the sound they produce is rich and luscious with a warm mellow bass tone.
