All bodhrans are made and prefected by Paul.  He spends a lot of time on each bodhran and wants to produce the perfect bodhran for each player.  Quality of skin ie light weight, medium weight or heavy weight skins can be requested.  Again the rim colour can be negotiated with Paul but basically there are 3 different colours, - ebony, medium oak and mahony - the most popular being the ebony.  All tuneable and indeed fixed skins come complete with tuners and one beater. 

For orders of tuneables please specify if you want a single-bar or not.

Hi Paul! This evening I got the bodhran at home. I’ve just played it for a short time by now (mind neighbors, you know…) and I’m not an expert either but I think I love the sound already and the tonal change response is also great. My thought that you were a truthful professional has become right as I feel that the best has been put to make the best possible bodhran for me. Really happy you signed on it! The beaters are exactly what I wanted and I have to thank you for that extra too. I’m sure I’ll enjoy playing it a lot. Thanks again! Hugo
