The 16” bodhrán is our best selling size. 16 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.
Adjust tuning with lightning speed to respond to performance requirements for when you need your bodhrán to match pitch, volume and tone. With the broad 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.
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.
