I am really delighted and very proud to bring you the new and improved McNeela Wave Bodhrán, yes, it's back!
I think it’s a bit of a show stopper and bound to stand out in a crowd.
The Wave’s unique and innovative undulating rim looks like no other bodhrán and plays like no other bodhrán; the sound it produces will send tingles down your spine...
"My Wave Set arrived today and it is a religious experience" Christopher S.
"When I first saw my Wave bodhrán, I thought 'what an amazing piece of craftsmanship' and when I played it, I had goosebumps on my arms. I feel like a surfer who has finally completed the search for 'the perfect Wave'." Neil J.
Comes with a full Beginner to Master Online Bodhrán Course with Rónán Ó Snodaigh and whole host of other bodhrán goodies plus
**Discounted Priority Shipping to USA, Australia & Rest of World**
Unique Waved Rim I’ve created a unique undulating rim which allows the player to utilise every bit of the goatskin and exploit all of its myriad properties. The rim is plywood, lightweight yet sturdy, and travels well.
Extra Deep Rim I’ve managed to get great depth in the rim without interfering with ease of play, thanks to the the wave cutouts. This extra depth coupled with the undulating rim helps produce a luscious bass sound and tonal quality completely unique to the Wave.
Hand Tuners There are eight easy to use hand-tuners, brilliant for stage work and also very handy for effective reaction to environmental factors; you can play it all night without worrying about humidity or temperature.
Choice of Skin You have the choice of hand-selected milky goatskin or Lambeg skin, both give a fantastic response, clear resonant tones up and down and great attack. The Vellum goatskin gives mellow, creamy tones and deep bass resonance whereas the Lambeg skin gives brighter, clearer tones and a very flexible response to the beater.
Double Skinning Available at No Extra Charge
For a rolling thunder roar, I can add an extra skin to your bodhrán to increase depth of tone, sustain and volume.
