The Bodhrán - a Traditional Irish Frame Drum Made Easy





Introduction: The Bodhrán - a Traditional Irish Frame Drum Made Easy

More about the bodhran:

Here in Singapore, the bodhran is a very 'unknown' instrument to many. But for some reason I stumbled upon it and like how it is being played.

Unfortunately, buying one may burn a hole in my wallet.

So I decided to make one without traditional wood or goatskin (those would also cost a lot)
Check out the link. I used it to make my bodhran. 

I used some baking thingy for the body (it's metal and shiny! looks like a snare)
Drum head using tape : 

I think the bodhran I made is too small to be a bodhran, but makes a relatively good sound. I encourage you to try this project as it only takes a short time to make and it is fun.

Thanks for reading.
