Bodhrán Skins:

mcneela-bodhran-skin-workshop.jpgAs you may have guessed, yes the skin is the most important part of the bodhrán. That's why we only use the best goat skins, sustainably sourced.

We have done many blind tests and the results are staggering. Even non-bodhrán players can tell the difference between a good quality skin and a poor one - it's that obvious.

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 (without the use of chemicals) 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.


Please note that as goatskin is a natural product variations of skin thickness, surface details and colour will occur.
These are not defects but contribute to the unique qualities of your new bodhrán.

Hand-Tuning System

Features an 8-point hand tuning system for complete playing flexibility in all environments and conditions.

Bodhrán Taping

All of Paraic’s bodhráns come taped around the edges as standard to ensure that gorgeous McNeela bass sound, part of which has made his 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.

Taping the 16" bodhrán extends the harmonic range of the bodhrán and adds complexity to the bass.
