For a very limited time only, with every purchase of any of my tuneable bodhráns you will receive eight lessons, YES eight lessons, with Rónán Ó Snodaigh, one of the greatest bodhrán players ever.

These online lessons will cover everything from basic traditional Irish dance beat timing, traditional Irish music session performance, alternative beats, how to get the most out of your bodhrán skin, how to tune your bodhrán and everything else you need to get started on your bodhrán learning journey.

With Rónán’s magical way of teaching I guarantee you will fall completely and utterly in love with bodhrán playing.

These lessons are exclusive to McNeela Instruments and will have you accompanying traditional Irish music sessions with gusto in no time!

Bodhrán Size
The 15” bodhrán is our best selling size. 15 inches is a great all-rounder size suiting both petite players and larger players without compromising on the McNeela signature lush bass sound. The 6 inch rim depth produces a deep bass tone with great volume potential.

Performance
Adjust tuning with lightning speed to respond to performance requirements for when you need your bodhrán to match pitch, volume and tone. With the borad spread of tonal options available you can offer a subtle accompaniment in quieter session spaces and a full resonating bass in concert settings.

Hand Tuning System
Our 8-point hand tuning system means you can adjust your bodhrán without interrupting your performance; the tuners are easy to grip and super fast to tune. Environmental conditions can be conquered with a quick turn of the hand so you can play all night without worrying about humidity or temperature.

Thanks to our hand tuners you can adjust the tension of your skin with total ease and minimum distraction and bring something of a wow factor to the session, hup! 

Bodhrán Goatskin
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.

Why we use rosewood: 

Rosewood is a remarkably beautiful hardwood and is quite dense. The more dense the wood the better the resonance. Rosewood is hard enough to allow for a strong earthy resonance, it’s also very good looking and cost effective at the same time. We use Indian Rosewood, a highly sustainable and renewable form of rosewood.

Exemptions for all musical instruments crafted with rosewood now apply. Please visit CITES.org for more information.

Good to know:

  • 14 day money back trial from the day you receive the Rosewood Deep Rim 15" Tuneable Bodhrán.
  • 1 year guarantee (this is very important when considering which bodhrán to buy).
  • Has a removable T-bar and arm cut-out for even more playing comfort.
  • If purchased before 12pm (Monday-Friday), it is shipped the same business day.
  • 100% refundable including shipping (For any reason, just return it up to 14 days from when you receive the bodhrán). 

Over to Paraic:

"A lot of people may overlook the bodhrán making process and think it's unimportant, however the way a bodhrán is crafted is extremely important. Time and time again, I get calls from people telling me how they have just bought a cheap bodhrán, and after just a few hours of playing they realise that the sound quality is poor and no amount of playing or practising will make it sound good - this is the last thing any musician wants."
