Good first instrument
Caroline D, 24.03.2021
I wanted to start playing the bodhran but didn't know if I would end up liking it, so I didn't want to spend too much on it. I also know that if you have a very bad quality instrument, there is not much you can do about its use and sound and, as a beginner, it can make you quit pretty easily. This revealed to be a happy middle.

I was afraid that the sound would be too high pitched with a 14'' frame, but it actually sounds deep enough for me and the people I play with, to everyone's surprise. The size is perfect for my arms (I am a 1m67 tall woman) and it is quite light and easy to carry.

I really like the fact that it is tunable, which helps a lot when you need to play in an ensemble. The skin was really tense when I received mine (it seemed to be tuned like a regular drum), so don't hesitate to loosen the screws until you hear that your tonal hand placement actually makes a sound difference.

In conclusion:
- very good for beginners;
- nice sound;
- don't hesitate to loosen the skin.

Good starting point.

Great Bodhràn to get started with the instrument!
Pretty nice soud, sturdy build.
The skin used is good, gives out a nice response to hits!
The tuning system could be a little tighter as it easily detunes.

Excellent premier bodhran
L'ours Fred, 01.04.2017
Il s'agit de mon premier bodhran. Je débute en percussion.
Je prends énormément de plaisir à jouer (mal) avec.

Le rapport qualité prix me semble tout à fait satisfaisant.


Comme d'autres on pu le faire je conseille d'acheter plusieurs beater.

J'en ai pris 3 :
Meinl FDT3 Bodhran Beater
Millenium Bodhran Beater #5
Meinl FDT1 Bodhran Beater

Chacun permet une approche différente du jeu.

gefällt mir richtig gut!!
05.11.2016
Weil in unserer kleinen Amatuerband Percussion und Basstöne fehlten, habe ich beschlossen Bodhran zu lernen. Da wir nicht nur Irish, sondern auch Folk, Rock, Pop und Jazz spielen, sollte der Sound nicht zu wild und urig sein, sondern eher präzise. Deshalb habe ich mich für eine kleinere Bodhran entschieden.

Die Meinl 14"x 6" hat genau diesen präzisen Sound, klingt dabei aber dennoch richtig voll. (Das hängt wohl mit dem tieferen Rahmen zusammen.)

Meinen verwöhnten Ohren gefällt es. Die Klangvielfalt dieses Instruments ist beeindruckend und es macht einfach richtig Spaß darauf zu spielen.

Das Naturfell bietet verschiedene Nuancen, je nachdem in welcher Position man die Bodhran hält. Positiv finde ich auch, dass das Instrument kein Kreuz und keine Stange hat, das würde nur einschränken.

Wegen des geringen Durchmessers der Bodhran stelle ich den linken Fuß auf ein Gitarrenfußbänkchen oder ich spiele im Stehen und stelle das linke Bein auf einen Stuhl, dann stimmt für mich die Haltung.

Fazit:
Die Meinl 14" x 6" ist genau das Instrument, das ich gesucht habe und preislich ist sie für mich auch im Rahmen.
