Introduced over 20 years ago, Roosebeck Bodhrans are a favorite with players of Irish Frame Drums of many skill levels. Affordable for the beginning player, yet crafted of quality components that accomplished players appreciate. With one of the largest selection of Bodhrans available, you'll find that special Bodhran that is just the right one for you. All handcrafted from quality materials and value priced.
The bodhrán, properly pronounced bow-rawn, like "Cow Brawn", with a slight emphasis on the first syllable, is an Irish frame drum. It is most often played with a tipper, also called a cipín (pronounced ki-PEEN). A goatskin head is attached to one side, and the other side is open ended for one hand to be placed against the inside of the drum head to control the pitch and timbre. The most popular playing styles are the Kerry style, and the West Limerick style. Today, the bodhran is typically associated with Irish and Scottish music. Some believe the bodhran was introduced to Ireland as deffs or frame drums from Africa or Central Asia. Those whom support the Irish origin point out that the bodhran is played with beaters and not fingers. They use this difference as proof that the bodhran developed independently from other frame drums. Some suggest it developed from an Irish tambourine, while others suggest it evolved from a winnowing tray. Thanks to a number of performers the bodhran was eventually introduced to the world.
