The new ones are a bit expensive, methinks

Re: 16" tuneable bodhran for sale (handmade by Roddy Turner)

which do players prefer tuneable v non tuneable ?


personally i’ve never fancied the tuneable ones, though i don’t really know why, there’s just something about them that doesn’t agree with me.

I used to agree with you, but about two years ago I had a tuning mechanism fitted to my bodhran when it was being "serviced". It does keep the skin at perfect pitch 95% of the time, and no more heating the skin and all that.

Is the bodhran still for sale?
