As you may have guessed, yes the skin is the most important part of the bodhrán. That's why we only use the best of skins, sustainably sourced. We have done many blind tests and the results are staggering. Even non-bodhrán players can tell the difference between a good quality skin and a poor one - it's that obvious.
There is a huge difference in sound between a professionally made bodhrán and a badly made one. Hand-cured and hand stretched, properly conditioned and treated (without the use of chemicals) goatskin wins every single time. Carefully removed goatskin is used because you get much more depth of sound from it. The curing of the skin has to be carried out with great care as if it's done incorrectly it can destroy the skin or the sound that comes from it.
Our 8 point hand-tuning system means you can adjust your bodhrán without interrupting your performance.
The tuners are easy to grip and super fast to tune.
Environmental conditions can be conquered with a quick turn of the key so you can play all night without worrying about humidity or temperature.
All of Paraic’s bodhráns come taped around the edges as standard to ensure that lush McNeela bass sound - one of the many factors which make his drums so popular.
This technique creates a much deeper tone and sustain. It was discovered by observing drummers who use E rings on their drum kits to dampen the tone. In much the same way, the taping on the 16" bodhrán extends the harmonic range of the bodhrán and adds complexity to the bass tones.
