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.
Here, you will find bodhráns, tippers and accessories. Also information about the bodhrán, workshop dates and sounds and videos.
The shop is a small family business, run by Rolf and Karola Wagels. We offer individual advice based on my experience of 30 years of professional bodhrán playing and teaching. You have come to the right place if you want to buy a bodhran!
Our showroom stocks all the products you find in the online sho. It is located near Hannover, Germany, please get in touch before you come, by appointment only!
We offer extensive information on the bodhrán, its history and construction and on tippers. We also have a buyer's guide on what to take in account when buying a bodhrán.
Bodhran-info is a Hedwitschak Drums Premium Partner. The Hedwitschak Drums Premium Partners are closely integrated in all development processes at Hedwitschak drums. They support the development of new drum and tipper models, and the further development of existing products through their vast experience and their innovative approach.
