CoreLine Series Bodhráns

CoreLine Bodhran overview

from the very core of our experience and competency in bodhrán making.

The CoreLine

When we developed the CoreLine, our aim was to deliver a top quality instrument in a wide range of sizes, providing the customer with great value for money.

Now, the CoreLine series sets the standards for an universal bodhrán series. As the name CoreLine suggests, these models are high-quality instruments focusing on what is essential, on the core of the matter.

The CoreLine models are not bound to a certain sound, they are not designed for a specific playing style, and they do not focus on a specific look. That is why the CoreLine is a great choice for beginners and players who are looking for an outstanding drum at the best possible price.

Especially beginners may find it difficult to grasp the differences between individual skins (for example Lambeg skin, DRAGONSkin or deer skin) and the various drum models' designs. A CoreLine model is an all-purpose tool and the ideal companion to help you develop your own playing style and to help you find out which sound is for you. It will be fairly easy to resell a CoreLine model if you want to switch to a different drum model.

The good availability (most models are always in stock) and short delivery times are another strong reason for choosing a CoreLine model.

The Concept

From the choice of material to the construction of the frame and the finish of the surfaces, all components and details are perfectly balanced.

The CoreLine entered the marked in 2012 and has been improved ever since. By now, it is available in nine different model variants that cover all wishes in terms of size and model characteristics.

We also offer a starter package at a discounted price.

The Skin

We are using drum skins made by one of the best skin makers worldwide: Werner Edlauer

The new Edlauer Select Premium drum skins are made especially for the CoreLine series. They are specially chosen goat skins and are produced in a unique way exclusively for Hedwitschak drums.Next,  the suitable skin areas for the given CoreLine model are selected.

Characteristics of the EdlauerSelect Premium skins are: Harmonious timbre, great flexibility, comfortable surface feel, easy reaction to the skin hand with effortless tonal modulation and stable tuning in almost any climate zone. 

A premium drum skin for an outstanding bodhrán series.

Attention to the smallest details

The Design

The multipoint tuning system works smoothly and allows for precise, quick and easy tuning. Thanks to the skillful shaping of the inner part of the tuning rim, the hand nestles naturally into place and is therefore very comfortable to play.

With the intricate contours and the flush to the rim skin mounting, the design of the CoreLine bodhrán demonstrates simple elegance and timelessness.

Consistent but variable

The Sound

The different models of the CoreLine series also offer different sounds: from the compressed sound of the CoreLine Bullet to the open sound of the CoreLine Maxi, the model range offers a wide spectrum.

Within the individual models, however, the sound is consistent: through clever selection of the natural skins, identical models sound very similar. If you have fallen in love with the sound of the "Bullet", the "Universal" or the "Classic", you can order online and you will get almost the identical sound.

All models, but especially the "Universal" model, are ideal for beginners, because they are not only ready to play "out of the box", but also offer a pleasant, balanced and session-compatible sound. At the same time, the CoreLine series is not a beginner's instrument, but also offers advanced players a wide range of sounds and thus long-term playing pleasure.
