Irish made 16″ Bodhran. The 6″ shell is made from birch ply, which gives a lovely deep tone. The skin is AAA goat skin and carefully selected with a tone ring added, to dampen the over ring sound.
The Bodhran shell is painted black before being rubbed into the grain. The shell is then sprayed with a yellow colour laquer, followed by seven coats of a high gloss laquer. A cutaway is added to the Bodhran to allow players to hold the instrument with ease.
