14 inches is a great size suiting both petite and younger players as well as travelling musicians who need a more compact drum, without compromising on quality.
The 6 inch rim depth produces a rich, deep bass tone. The deeper the rim, the more resonant the bass sound will be. The 6" rim is perfect for creating our signature McNeela lush, booming bass and great volume.
Hand Tuning System
Our 8 point hand-tuning system makes it easy to adjust your bodhrán tuning, without interrupting your performance.
The tuners are easy to grip and fast to tune. The McNeela tuning system will allow you to get the best sound from your bodhrán skin, no matter the playing conditions.
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 spread of tonal options 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 sustainable product and each skin will be unique to your bodhrán, waiting for you to explore its myriad properties.
Use McNeela's DrumDiddly bodhrán conditioning cream (included in the set) to keep your new bodhrán skin in optimum condition.
How to Use DrumDiddly Bodhrán Cream to Condition Your Bodhrán Skin
Just remove a small amount of cream from the container and, using your fingers, massage it into the skin on the front of the bodhrán. Use large circular motions to spread the cream over the skin. Then, leave it overnight to soak in.
The following day, take a soft, lint-free cloth and, again using large circular motions, wipe the skin with the cloth. This will remove any excess product from the skin. Continue to buff until the skin is dry and no longer sticky.
You’ll notice a difference immediately in not just the feel and texture of the skin, but also the sound it produces.
I recommend only treating the outside (front or top) of the bodhrán skin, especially for non-tuneable bodhráns.
Why? Conditioning creams affect moisture absorption. In order to adjust the tone of a non-tuneable bodhrán you’ll need it to be capable of absorbing water; the easiest way to adjust the tone of a non-tuneable bodhrán is by lightly misting it with water, wetting it down with a spray bottle.
