Yes, we can re-skin most Bodhrans. Send us a query through our contacts page and we will contact you to quote (around £40-50 dependent on the drum and the skin choice).  Postage is at your own cost.

Playing and enjoying your bodhran is often the best care that you can give it. You can condition the skin from time to time if it is drying out or becoming 'tinny' by rubbing a palm-ful beeswax into the skin. Do not let your skin become too tight and dry. Loosen the tuning ring if this happens.

Following custom drum order confirmation and timescales being set, we will work to ensure your drum arrives in a timely manner. We use Royal Mail, UPS and DHL as our couriers, we do not accept responsibility and can not gaurantee their service although will keep you up to date with tracking numbers and order updates where possible.
