WB's Tunable Irish Bodhran

LP's World Beat 18" Tunable Bodhran comes with a tuning wrench & easy-to-tune lugs.  The tuning lugs allow you to easily explore a large variety of tonal ranges.  This drum also comes with a tipper (two headed wood beater) & durable, black nylon carrying case.  The drum also has a removable cross bar.

The frame of the drum is made of rosewood & the head is goat skin.

Basic Playing Technique

The circular frame of the World Beat Bodhran is supported by a cross section, which the player can hold while playing.   Most commonly, the bodhran is played by either holding the cross section with one hand & beating the head with the other hand; or tucking the drum between the one arm and the chest so the free hand can beat & play the head. 

The head can be struck with the bare hand, fingers or tipper ( a double-headed stick; also known as a  beater or cipin, which is the Gaelic word for kindling).

 The hand using the tipper can strike in a variety of ways, such as rotating the forearms so that the tipper tips side-to-side or bouncing/striking the tipper upon the head.   Click to learn more about playing the bodhran

Bodhran's Basic Background

The Bodhran (pronounced "bow-rawn") are frame drums of Celtic origin. 

The bodhran (pronounced "bow-rawn") is a very resonant & reletively simple Irish frame drum, which was originally used as a husk sifter: that is, as a pan-like device to to shake the husks off grains. Gaelic peasants first converted the sifter to a musical instrument by replacing its wire mesh head with stretched goat skin.

The bodhran is a special drum which is at the heart of contemporary playing of traditional Irish music.  Yet it's only been outside of Southwest Ireland since 1960's.
