This Plain 18″ diameter Bodhran from Percussion Plus is a handcrafted Irish drum. This model is tuneable, the drum head can be stretched or relaxed to fine tune the tone of the drum. It’s ideal for folk jams, gigs in a variety of settings as well as teaching, learning and practice.
A bodhran is an Irish frame drum that has recently become very popular due to the resurgence of Irish traditional music.
The bodhran is traditionally played using a lathe-turned piece of wood called a bone or tipper (supplied), and can also be played using a modern brush stick, or the fingertips.
Quality construction and finish
A solid construction and well-built inner frame allows the player to confidently grip the drum to produce a clear and resonant tone. The natural skin is evenly stretched for a stable tone and long life.
What’s in the box?
This 18″ bodhran comes supplied with its own traditional style tipper, and a handy carry case to get you started on your bodhran playing journey.

We work with a small number of specialist logistic companies to deliver your order quickly and economically. The delivery method varies, depending on your location and the size of the order, as follows:
Orders up to 5kg – Courier 2 to 3 working day delivery. This would typically include books, smaller instruments, percussion baskets and djembes up to 40cm.

- Above timings are from dispatch date. Time from placing your order will usually be one or two days longer, depending on the order and destination.
- Delivery to offshore or Highland addresses may take longer and may cost more than to UK mainland addresses and we’ll quote and agree the costs with you in advance. Please note that in these cases it’s fine to go ahead and place your order, and there’s no obligation on your part until the delivery costs have been quoted and accepted by you.
- For some destinations, where a courier service isn’t available, we may send by Royal Mail instead.

Please let us know straight away if anything arrives damaged or otherwise in a substandard condition and we’ll be happy to replace it, refund the cost or provide you with an alternative product to your satisfaction. Speed is of the essence here as most courier companies will only accept responsibility for damage in transit if the damage is reported within 24 hours of delivery.
In the event of damage, please take photographs, including any damage to the packaging, and email these to us ASAP.
Similarly, if an instrument develops a fault within 12 months of purchase in the course of normal use (though excluding fair wear and tear), please let us know, and we’ll replace it or refund the cost. It’s also very helpful for us to see photos of the issue as this gives us solid information for changing the design, the production method or the packing materials.
But please do contact us before returning any damaged or substandard items. Once we’ve approved their return, please send to: Drums for Schools Limited, 21 Shaftesbury Avenue, Burton Joyce NG14 5GL
We really appreciate your feedback in the case of faults (or if you think an instrument could be improved in any way) and we take all such feedback very seriously indeed.
