Bodhran

The bodhran is an Irish framed drum with a goatskin or kangaroo head similar to North African frame drums. Today it is widely used in Irish traditional music.The bodhrán plural bodhráns or bodhráin) is an Irish frame drum ranging from 10" to 26" in diameter, with most drums measuring 14" to 18". The sides of the drum are 3½" to 8" deep. A goatskin head is tacked to one side (although nowadays, synthetic heads, or new materials like kangaroo skin, are sometimes used).

The other side is open ended for one hand to be placed against the inside of the drum head to control the pitch and timbre. One or two crossbars may be inside the frame but this is increasingly rare on professional instruments. Some professional modern bodhráin integrate mechanical tuning systems similar to those used on drums found in drum kits.
