Dear everyone,

My name is Miklos Kovacs, I am Hungarian. I would like to buy a good bodhran but it is not available here in Hungary, so please inform me how could I get one. Is anyone planning to come to Hungary soon (from Ireland or England)? Contact me. Thank you, best regards,

Miklos Kovacs

Miklos, there is a bodhran maker in Ireland who has a web site that you can reach through a link in this month's issue of the online magazine "Ireland's Eye". I bought my excellent bodhran here in the US (over the phone) from a company called Stringed Instrument Division, (onlinr at It came with a soft case, a tipper, and was under $100. Great deal for a beginner, and sounds and looks great.

Also many others - do a web search on bodhran and you'll find a bunch.

Mike Try a search 'Bodhran Page', there's a great list of makers & links to them.If you're looking for a good one & don't mind paying for what you want I would suggest checking Mance Grady on that page. I own 2 of his drums, the 1st is now about 14 yrs old & is is in the hands of my 2 kids, my 2nd is one with Mance's sliding bar grip, the backside of my hand no longer blisters & is great for hand slapping on the drums inside, he also has a tuning ring that I don't see how I could've gone without all these yrs. His drums, I would say, are the best I've ever played & his quality is the most consistent of any drum maker I've seen. His bodhran tape is a must for any drummer (he is also a great drummer). Barry

Whatever you do don't buy a non handmade bodhran. While I am sure there are o.k. one's out there, for a slightly higher price (not that much really) you can get a good quality handmade bodhran which will last you a lifetime. Mance Grady makes nice one's as do makers in nearly every inch of the world (mine was made by Malachy 'Bodhran' Kearns from Roundstone, Ireland). I have met some bodhran makers in some fairly interesting places. Another option is to make your own which can be done and there is a good guide on the Ceolas Celtic Webpage which gives step by step instructions if you are the adventorous type.
