An ambient Celtic drum with a warm tone and a few modern age enhancements.

The Meinl Irish Bodhran features an extra-deep shell for a rich, full sound, and an extra dampening layer on the rim to reduce overtones. The traditional cross brace has been removed to enable direct hand pressure on the head for contemporary pitch-bending techniques.

  • Meinl Irish Bodrhan

    As reviewed by Daniel Talioaga on 10/19/2012

    This is my second bodrhan (pronounced "bow rann")to own. The inside tuning (with wrench included)is great and easy to use. The size, feel and tone is terrific, plus not having the traditional crossbars on the inside really make it easy to change tones (plus the smaller 14" head and deep 6" shell makes it easy to hold and keep control of the drum while moving your hand around to change tones. The tone for this small drum is warm, deep and resonant for its size. I am very pleased with it. My other bodrhan has a synthetic 16' head which definitely provides a different feel and tones (I purchased the other drum online from guitar center as well). My main reason for writing this review is to warn newcomers to this type of drum is that this meinl irish bodrhan does not come with a tipper, which is a specific stick suited for this style of drumming. Fortunately for me my other drum came with a tipper and I have since then purchased other tippers (which can affect tone and playability. There are other bodrhans like one from Pakistan which can be played beating by hand. However, this meinl Irish Bodrhan is meant to be played with a tipper. That one is not provided is my only complaint. Otherwise, this drum is lots of fun.
