Tuneable - Large - Aidan MacRory
Here at the top of Aidan's range sits a truly profesional bodhran. As we have said before Aidan is renowned for his attention to detail and this bodhran is no exception, from the bevelled single crossbar to the leather banding through to the exceptional skin used. The tuning mechanism uses eight bolts to press the inner ring against the inside of the skin allowing the player control of their tone regardless of the conditions. Diameter - 18&1/4 in. / 46.5 cm. Rim depth - outer 4 in. / 10 cm., inner 1&1/4 in. / 3 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. € 157.66
