Sounds good, I like bassy. Is it quite a thick skin, like say a Belgarth?

Hi Mike, the Deerskin drum is very bassy & doesn't have the wide range of tones that a Goatskin drum has, so it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but I like it for its different voice.

How does it compare with goatskin, I've got a goatskin Paul McAuley. Sonically it's very similar to Seamus O'Kane

Does anyone else here play a Deerskin Bodhran?

This Paul McAuley Bodhran is tuneable & made from Scottish Deerskin.

Forgot to mention the web site for Albert:

In addition to really nice drums, he makes an incredible array of tippers, mostly from laminated "Diamond Wood."

Mance Grady from RI USA. Terrific bodhran maker and a fine performer and teacher.

I play a Brendan White double skin. I really like its tonal range. He is easy to get a hold of and stands behind his drums. His web is Check him out.
