About the McNeela 15” Performance Bodhrán

  • 8-Point Hand-Tuning System
  • Cross Bar (removable)

Bodhrán Skins:

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. We recommend treating your skin with DrumDiddly bodhrán conditioning cream to keep it in optimum condition.

There is a huge difference in sound between a professionally made bodhrán and a badly made one. Hand-cured and hand stretched, properly conditioned and treated goatskin wins every single time. Carefully removed goatskin is used because you get much more depth of sound from it. The curing of the skin has to be carried out with great care as if it's done incorrectly it can destroy the skin or the sound that comes from it.

Tuning System: 

Features an 8-point hand tuning system for complete playing flexibility in any environment.


All of my bodhráns come taped around the edges as standard to ensure that gorgeous McNeela bass sound, part of which has made my drums so popular. This technique creates a much deeper tone and sustain. It was discovered by observing drummers who use E-Rings on their drum kits to dampen the tone. In much the same way, the taping on the 15" bodhrán extends the harmonic range of the bodhrán and adds complexity to the bass.

From time to time we may need to substitute a beater with another beater of equal or greater value
