Deep Shell Bodhrans
14” diameter $465.00
We created our Deep Shell Bodhran Drums in response to the evolving playing styles of today’s most progressive percussionists. An exceptionally deep, solid, single ply shell, a finely finished goatskin head, and a steep bearing edge, work together to produce a warm deep tone with a wide range of flexibility. Excellent for mic’ing and recording, the controlled overtones and full range of this drum, from crisp high notes to punchy bass tones, bring this instrument into the mix without being abrasive. The drum can be customized in a variety of ways upon request; custom orders may be differently priced.
- Our 6 1/2″ deep shell features a precision beveled bearing edge.
- The edge of the head is secured into an exteriorgroove, which is then covered with a colored knit cord. We designed this self-locking system to minimize the tendency of the head to pull away from the shell. This drum is available with a high quality goatskin head or a REMO synthetic head.
- Our patented internal tuning technology preserves the traditional appearance of the instrument and allows the player to maintain a complete range of motion, unencumbered by external hardwar. Tension on the head is adjusted by the action of an internal, lightweight, moveable bearing member. A T-grip Allen wrench and tuning instructions are included.
- Our arm cut-out, an arch design with smoothly rounded edges, allows for comfortable access to the underside of the head; there is no cross-piece handle.
- A hand rubbed, natural finish accentuates the beauty of the wood.
- A Cooperman signature padded soft case is included with each drum.
