Traditionally an Irish frame drum
played with a small double ended stick called a tipper.
Traditional playing techniques involving the hands
only do exist but are older and rarer. Also rare is
to find the bodhrán with jingles attached,
which can still be found today in some Irish pub music.
The one pictured here is made by
Drums and is an over sized version at 22 inches
with tuning hardware mounted in the back and a plastic
head. These larger drums are made to be played specifically
with innovative hand techniques.
