Description

The bodhrán is made of a goatskin stretched over a wooden frame. The word bodhrán is pronounced 'BOW-rawn', with the emphasis on the first syllable. It was used historically by the Irish forces as a battle drum. It provided a cadence for the pipers and warriors to keep to, as well as to announce the arrival of the army. It is the native drum of the Celts, with a musical history that predated Christianity. My one here was brought over from my family in Ireland (I myself am Irish). - 18 inches in diameter - comes with a 'tipper' or the wooden stick you use to hit the drum. (In this photo, the bodhran is hanging on the wall. The tipper is sitting on top of the bodhran) - this one was made by Waltons in Dublin, who are well-known and respected manufacturers of musical instruments. You can check out some info about the drum here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bodhr%C3%A1n ...and you can find a few decent videos with tutorials too. I like this lady here: http://www.BodhranExpert.com She provides decent lessons. Here she is, putting her bodhran through its paces: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vtMK0q5ZWA Deliberately setting the deposit a bit high because this was a gift and therefore has sentimental value (I want to be sure we get it back!) :-) We can do a handover either: - from my home, Astoria Queens, 5 minute walk from Broadway Station (N or Q line) OR - Penn station/Madison Square Garden area of Manhattan where I work.
