Product Description


 The New McNeela 16" Deep-Rim Performance Bodhrán

After months of testing, researching, experimenting with different skins and trying new techniques, I am very pleased to announce that my new Signature Bodhran is finally ready!

Key Features:

  • Comes in three sizes 16inches, 15inches and 14inches.
  • Produces the perfect tone, great sound and has a great range. 
  • Super easy and fast to tune. 
  • Has a lovely matt green finish.
  • Has a cut out for even more playing comfort. 
  • Comes with a free canvas gig bag and weighted tipper. 

I am delighted with this bodhrán review from Jim Woods when I was first testing the New Performance Bodhrán range, I'd personally say Jim is one of the best Bodhrán players if not the best in the world, so for him to send me this video really made my day! Check out the video below and listen to that beat!

The Performance is something I am very proud of, I believe I have created a knockout and I am thrilled at the reviews I have received so far. When handcrafting new Bodhrans I always think of the players needs and wants, my main focus is to create a Bodhran which is easy and enjoyable to play, tune and it must produce an outstanding sound. I am satisfied and delighted that the Performance provides this.

Comes with a free Canvas Bodhran Gig Bag and a free Weighted Tipper.

The Performance comes in three sizes 16 inches, 14 inches and 13 inches. It has 8 hand tuners, the hand tuners are easy to grip and super fast to tune; very convenient for tuning during a performance. The skin has specifically selected and is perfectly cured and treated. 

The Performance produces the perfect tone, great sound and has a great range.
