Thread Name: Bodhran Questions
Subject: RE: Bodhran Questions
I use lanolin once or twice a year on my bodhran skin. It's the natural substance that is found on beasts anyway and does keep the skin supple. Dead leather does have a tendency to dry out. However, I will stress moderation in the use of lanolin. The tiniest bit of it will spread amazingly with the warmth of one's hand and the patience of massaging it into the skin. Usually takes at least an hour to do the drum to my liking.
