"It's all about the tone"

Professionally made Irish bodhrans & tunable bodhrans for sale by Paraic Mcneela

Testimonials from two very experienced bodhrán players


Connor Lyons - Connor was World Bodhrán Champion for 2008 and 2009 as well as an All Ireland Champion. Connor currently plays internationly with the band The Bonny Men. 

"I was always impressed with the quality of Paraic's bodhrans. They have that bass sound that you seldom get from other drum makers.  They have a nicely designed T-bar and a cut out, which is important for comfort & easy access to the rear of the drum. They also come standard with the black tape on the skin, giving them that extra bass tone that's very difficult to find on the market these days. I would highly recommend these drums as they are very well priced and of the highest quality.  I teach bodhrán and I find the 16" regular pro-bodhrán is ideal for adult beginners.

Best Wishes Paraic,

Connor Lyons"


Aoife Gaffney - Aoife came 2nd in Dublin Fleadh twice and plays with Malahide Kinsealy Comhaltas group. 

"I bought a 16" deep rim tuneable from Paraic almost 2 years ago. I love it as it has a lovely deep tone and I can tune up to get a nice high end which sounds great in sessions.  I was even able to bring it to be re-taped recently and he did it on the spot, free of charge. I was delighted as I play it constantly.

Thanks Paraic,
