Two 15" Glenarm with a 5" rim shipped to NSW, Australia

These two Glenarm 15" by 5" rims are our most popular range -  and are a lovely size for all players.  These particular bodhrans were hand picked by the Livingston family from Leonay, NSW, Australia and they show  the texture and grain of the natural wood - one has been stained with a ebony stain and the other a Natural Birch finish.  A customer can request a variety of skin weights and so we hand picked the skin to suit the players requirements.    

 

Our bodhrans have 6 tuners and  the skins we use are all goat skin and some are sourced from the Lambeg drum makers.  A single-bar can be fitted and again this is totally removable if preferred but please contact Paul to confirm your preference.  All our bodhrans come with one beater and also a tuner with a specially hand-turned wooden handle.

Please Note:  We use Natural Goat Skin and therefore the skins vary in density and texture, some may be quite see-through and others have small markings - these are all natural and do not affect the quality of the skin.  (The white skins are processed and mainly supplied from abroad)

Testimonials

"I received my Glencloy bodhran in the mail the other day. When I opened the carrying bag and saw my bodhran, I instantly fell in love with it. What a gorgeous bit of workmanship! The finish of the bodhran is the work of a master craftsman. The meticulous attention to detail is the work of an artist. But the sound of the bodhran. This is the work of a man who knows what he is about and how to build a bodhran! The deep resonance and the wide range of tonal effects set this bodhran apart as a serious, world class instrument. If you are looking for a bodhran for any reason, then you need look no further. Stunning and beautiful, an exciting and satisfying sound, prompt and reliable service, and a reasonable price. Play on!"
