Tuneable - Small - Aidan MacRory
This is like a condensed version of Aidan's popular tuneable bodhran. We've never heard such a huge sound from such a small diameter drum but we suspect the unusually deep shell helps. There is a single cutaway to ease access to the skin and the tuning mechanism uses 6 allen bolts. A single crossbar is used and the finish is of a very high standard complete with leather banding and brass tacks. Diameter - 15 in. / 38 cm. Rim depth - outer 5 in. / 13 cm., inner 1 in. / 2.5 cm. Maker Bio - Aidan MacRory has been making bodhrans since 1984 and trades under the name of Mac Bodhrans. His trademark is the attention to detail and finish that is evident across his range. He also popularised the use of a 1 and 1/2 crossbar design which offers a great compromise between ease of play and structural rigidity. Famous users of Aidan's bodhrans include Larry Mullin (U2), Caroline Corr (The Corrs), Mary Black and Henry Geraty. € 147.07
