A Bodhran is an Irish frame drum that is believed to have evolved from the tambourine. The Bodhran is played with the bare hand or with a lathe-turned piece of wood called a bone or tipper. Tension is controlled by the player placing their hand on the inside of the skin; the Bodhran is then struck with the other hand.
This 18" (46cm) Bodhran is a genuine hand crafted Irish drum with a plain design. This drum is supplied with a beater (tipper).
