The bodhrán (pronounced bough-rawn) is a special kind of frame drum native to Ireland and is said to be the heartbeat of Irish music. It is an ancient instrument traditionally made with a wooden body and a goat-skin head and ranges in size from 10" to 26" in diameter. The bodhrán can be played with one hand, a double-headed stick called a cipín, a tipper, a beater, a hotrod or a brush. Some are also crafted with a tuning mechanism.  Shop our selection of Waltons and synthetic head bodhráns at our store or online.
