The Genuine Irish Bodhrán

This is a genuine Irish Bodhrán—pronounced “Bow-rawn”—the traditional percussion instrument used in Gaelic music for centuries. Handcrafted in The Claddagh overlooking Galway Bay on Ireland’s west coast, each unique instrument is made by Michael Vignoles, an artisan with 30 years of experience. The drum is made from goatskin treated with closely guarded traditional techniques and stretched over a lacquered birch hoop frame where it is meticulously tacked in place and trimmed. The hardwood beater, or “tipper,” is used to strike the drum while altering the tension of the skin from the opposite side with the other hand, resulting in variations in timbre and color of sound. Includes DVD and carry case. 14" Diam x 4" H.
