Have you been to The Bodhran Page ? Try http://www.ceolas.org/instruments/bodhran/

There's lots of info on all aspects of the Hran - even some (new ?) jokes for Spaw.

Sounds like a good swap...

Seriously, it would depend on how it's played.

If played 'damped' - more of a 'clicky' sound, something like a Shure SM57 or Sennheiser E845 should work well.

If played more 'open' - more of a bass drum sound than clicks, then the old AKG D12 (if you can find a good secondhand one) is the best bet.

If it's for recording purposes, the AKG C414 would be ideal, but very expensive.

Visit your local sound hire company, and get them to show you what mics they have. Hire one for a gig or two, until you find something you like.

Good luck!

I have a second hand AKG. (I don't know the model #) It's one of those tringular ones that are built like a tank. I tried a kick drum mic, and it sounded great for the bodhrán but not good at all for bones, shaker etc. I also, play a lot of high end stuff on my drum. Rim shots, flat hand inside the drum, glissandras, etc. I often end up playing every thing through one mic. (Like when the house PA turns out to only have 6 channels) At any rate, I paid $70 used about a year and a half ago and have never had any complaints. I've tried playing with those clip on things and the one obvious problem is you can't get closer or further away from the mic. Granted, you can do more with dynamics by tipper control, but why give up mic proximity if you don't have to. On a crowded stage it could be a good thing, but I'm pretty good at carving out enough space for a boom stand.
Good luck with the Seinhauser, Skarpi. Please let me know how it works out.

Rich

My $25 (Aus) tie clip from Tandy (Radio Shack) works great....... is the Sennhauser one the one that is shaped like a pencil, and lies flat along the rim of the drum? If so I ahve heard very good reports of them.. but wouldn't be prepared to spend so much on them.......

even playing the drum holding the skin near to a Shure vocal mic does a good job....

The bodhrán microphone that I use is a Beyerdynamic TG-X5 percussion mic, which has a flexible swan neck and a really simple clip-on clamp to attach it to the rim.

In democratic countries you should be free to own and posess a bodhran mike. What should be illegal however is plugging it in.
Kinda like being allowed to own a gun but not being allowed to use it on innocent people. :-}

As I use Microvox systems for the concertinas I just put a Velcro pad on the inside of the rim pointing towards the skin. Also use them for whistles by sticking a pad below the fipple. The only time I really need to is when recording stuff.

No but it usually enables everyone else to be louder.

In order to make one quieter, it is necessary to use a different beater. I can recommend a Stanley knife.
