Bodhrán Buyer's Guide

A Top-Quality Bodhrán Design:

Sporting a luscious deep sea green colour, our new Green Wave Bodhrán’s wave shape design makes this instrument effortless to play while having a beautifully resonant and full tone. It has our own 8-point hand tuning system for smooth tuning, alongside our signature vellum goatskin which offers a great deal of versatility in the tones it can play. The outer rim is constructed from a high grade leather and features a series of intricate harp designs engraved on the rim.

Bodhrán Skins

Each of our bodhrán skins are completely and entirely sustainable sourced. We have carried out many different studies to judge the quality of our bodhráns and they’ve all been incredibly positive in outlining the quality of our skins.

The difference in sound between poorly made bodhráns and professionally made ones can be staggeringly wide. If the curing of the skin is done incorrectly through mistreatment or chemicals, the sound will ultimately be destroyed. That’s why we take great pride in conditioning and treating our goatskins very carefully to make sure that we get the best sound possible.

The Tuning System

Our 8-point hand tuning system has been widely acclaimed and successful from its ease of use and high quality tuners to make tuning our bodhráns a very smooth process. One of the biggest benefits of our tuners is that they allow you to adjust the tension of the bodhrán to make sure it’s unaffected by temperature or humidity, which are the common obstacles that most bodhráns struggle to overcome. That way, you can keep your bodhrán in-tune for longer and keep up with the energy of any trad session!

 

Extra Bodhrán Lessons With Rónán Ó’snodaigh

For a limited time only, every one of these bodhráns comes with access to eight free expertly taught bodhrán lessons by Rónán Ó’Snodaigh, one of the worlds best bodhrán players and frontman for the incredible Irish trad-fusion band ‘Kíla’.
 
These virtual lessons will be sure to walk you through the basic techniques for beginners and work your way up into some of the trickier techniques. Thanks to Rónán’s expertise, these lessons will be sure to cover all of the bodhrán-playing bases ranging from learning the traditional Irish dance timings, performance, alternative grooves, caring for your bodhran skin, and everything else you need to become a competent bodhrán player.
 
These lessons are exclusive to McNeela products and instruments and are sure to get you up and playing as soon as possible.
