About bodhrán-info

established 2005


Founded in 2005, bodhrán-info slowly became one of the leading sources for anything bodhrán related. The mix of information and the store for high quality bodhráns and high quality accessories makes bodhrán-info a unique resource.

Back in 1999 I built a small website from scratch. At first only to collect information about the bodhrán and to inform about my workshop dates at that time. When I started to sell bodhráns more often besides the workshops, I integrated a small store into the site and officially founded bodhrán-info in 2005.

The next big step was a completely new online presence in 2012, in which the store was significantly expanded and the CoreLine bodhrán series was added to the store. Fortunately, there was an increasing demand for high-quality bodhráns and accessories like tippers and I expanded the store in many steps.

But not only the store, but also information like a buying guide and background knowledge about the bodhrán was constantly expanded, so that people who want to buy a bodhrán can find as much background information as possible here.
