About the Bodhrán

This 14" Tuneable Deep-Rim Bodhrán, by Paraic McNeela, is made with patience, passion and precision. When you play it, you'll hear that deep, mellow, resonating bass tone, only achieved from a quality, crafted drum. Every bodhrán player should have a 14" bodhrán in their possession - they're perfect for travel. Petite and younger bodhrán players will also enjoy the lush bass sound produced by the deep rim on this drum without suffering the uncomfortable stretch in the arms that large bodhráns demand.

As you probably know or have already guessed, yes, the skin is the most important part of the bodhrán. That's why we only use the best goat skins. Our skins are sustainably sourced, carefully selected and examined for quality. They produce great depth of sound and are easy to tune.  We've 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. Our skins are naturally hand-cured in lime, which gives that all-important bass tone, then 'pickled' to close up the pores and finally stretched and left to sun dry, achieving a lovely clean 'bleached' finish. We recommend loosening your bodhrán after each play to keep the skin in optimum condition.

“Whatever way Paraic cures them and treats them, I can get everything I want out of them. There’s a lovely sound to them.” - Jim Woods


All of Paraic’s bodhráns come with taped skin to help achieve that gorgeous McNeela bass sound. Inspired by drummers using E-rings on their drum kits to dampen the tone, Paraic found that taping the outer rim of the skin lowered the tone of the bodhrán and extended its harmonic range. Taping your bodhrán helps bring about a more harmonic overtone-to-basic tone relation and consequently a more melodic quality to the sound produced. In other words, it helps the bodhrán sound more like a musical instrument and ensures you'll always be welcome at a session!
