Hi As a Bodhran player I follow these threads with tongue in cheek as I know some smartass twoapenny insecure banjo/gutiar/fiddle player (grin) is going to come up with some comment that they think is funny.

The advice above is very good, don't buy a 'tourist' drum with thin skin and fancy graphics painted on it. If you buy a drum buy a good one from a reputable maker it will last a lifetime.

One such maker is Eamon Maguire here in Belfast. His tunable drums are not very expensive and he sends them all over the world.

Get a few good forceful traditional CDs and play away with them at home. Get the simple beat/s and build on it/them with practice.

I don't know how to make blue clickity things but Maguires web site is below.
