Overview

Remo's deep-shell Irish Bodhran is available in both 16" and 14" diameters, with a 4-1/2" deep Acousticon shell. Each drum is fashioned with an internal tuning system and a synthetic Bahia Bass drumhead. The Bahia Bass drumhead produces a soft attack and deep bass tones and is pliable to produce pitch bending notes. Remo's Irish Bodhran includes a hex tuning key and tipper drumstick.

The Bodhran is the historic drum of Ireland and is the primary rhythmic accompaniment for the folk music of the Emerald Isle. The Bodhran is typically low pitched and is played with a double headed wooden mallet called a cip­n, tipper, or beater (sold separately).

Comments about Remo Irish Bodhran Drum with Bahia Bass Head:

The sound is OK but it rings like a bell it needs a ring of muffler. The tuning system is a joke Removable cross braces are needed to really bend notes. Trent Rowe , Winter Haven, Florida

About Me Novice

Comments about Remo Irish Bodhran Drum with Bahia Bass Head:

I wanted to have an inexpensive guitar at the office for down times when I need to de-stress. This one suits my purposes. It sounds nice and plays nice. I did take one star off because I had to install a strap button on the bottom, and because it only has two fret markers. To the other reviewers who complain that the instrument doesn't stay in tune, I'd point out that it is not the instrument but the nylon strings. Nylon strings are elastic and need to be physically stretched. Hold down the bridge, grab the strings three at a time and pull them up a few times, or tune the strings up when not in use to increase tension; then the strings will hold their tune.
