16" Irish bodhran with Bahia Bass head by Remo. The deep shell Irish Bodhrans are available in 14” and 16” diameter and are designed with a 4.5” deep Acousticon® shell. Each drum is fashioned with an internal tuning system and a synthetic Bahia Bass drumhead. The Bahia Bass drumhead produces a soft attack and deep bass tones and is pliable to produce pitch bending notes. Remo’s Irish Bodhrans include a hex tuning key and tipper drumstick. The Bodhran is the historic drum of Ireland and is the primary rhythmic accompaniment for the folk music of the Emerald Isle. The Bodhran is typically low pitched and is played with a double headed wooden mallet called a cipín, tipper, or beater.
