The epitome of cool looks and sophisticated, understated desgin, the T5165AB is beautifully designed and finished with hand-adjustable tuning and a huge range of tones. The unique all black finish with black rim and black skin is the perfect bodhran for the image conscious, contemporary Bodhran player who needs a compact but pro spec instrument with an immediately identifiable look that will make you stand out from the crowd. From “Top End” virtuoso playing to solid “Old School” rhythms and everything in between, this bodhran will bring your playing to new heights, whatever your preferred style.
With a handcrafted, ultra-durable, 5-times over-layered 5″ x 16″ frame, the T Series bodhran is manufactured using a highly-refined technique which has been developed by our Artisan bodhran makers over the last 40 years. The T-Series bodhrans guarantee a perfect balance of form and function at an astounding price.
Our hand-picked, premium quality goatskins are indivdually treated using a unique combination of age old traditions and 21st century science which allows us to maximise the skin potential while preserving the tonal and performance characteristics that give each of our T Series bodhrans its own individual personality while the AB skins are dyed black for a cool contemporary look.
All of our T Series bodhrans use an innovative hand tuning system developed by Christian Hedwitschak and exclusively licensed to Waltons for our T Series bodhrans. This system uses hand-turned tuning pins unlike the more conventional Allen screw system that requires a tool to tune the bodhran. This allows you to make lightning fast adjustments to skin tension so you are always in total control of your sound.
An amazing sounding Bodhran with a huge range of tones and dynamics, robust and durable build quality, and a unique contemporary aestethic, this instrument will bring your playing to new heights and open up a whole world of new musical possibilities.
