The 18" Shamrock Bodhran from Percussion Plus
This bodhran from Percussion Plus is a genuine handcrafted Irish drum, supplied with traditional style tipper, bag and instructional DVD.
With an attractive design and quality sound, this bodhran is ideal for folk jams, gigs in a variety of settings as well as teaching, learning and practice.
Traditional playing methods
A Bodhran is an Irish frame drum that is believed to have evolved from the tambourine, however more recently popularised due to the resurgence of Irish traditional music. The Bodhran is traditionally played using a lathe-turned piece of wood called a bone or tipper (supplied), and can also be played using a modern brush stick, or even your bare hands.
Quality construction and finish
A solid construction and well-built inner frame allows the player to confidently grip the drum to produce a precise and resonant tone. The natural skin drum is evenly stretched for accurate tone production and for a long life.
What's in the box?
This 18" bodhran comes supplied with its own traditional style tipper, a handy carry case, and an instructional DVD to get you started on your bodhran playing journey.
Please note: The PP1121 model was previously supplied with the Skellig design, which was discontinued in December 2020
