15 inches is a great all-rounder size catering both for the travelling musician who doesn’t want to compromise on depth of tone and also producing supreme playability for the petite and younger bodhrán player. If you can’t decide between a 14” and a 16” this is the perfect compromise.
Adjust tuning with lightning speed to respond to performance requirements for when you need your bodhrán to match pitch, volume and tone. With the wide range of tones available you can offer a subtle accompaniment in quieter session spaces and a full resonating bass in concert settings
Each goatskin is hand-selected for quality, responsiveness and sustain. This is a natural product and each skin will be unique to your bodhrán, waiting for you to explore its myriad properties. We recommend treating your skin with DrumDiddly bodhrán conditioning cream to keep it in optimum condition.
