A special model.

In every sense.

The FireBall bodhrán is a special model created of my own conception with the objective to create a design expressing the special sound qualities. 

Definitely not a drum for beginners. But advanced players will have their joy !

The core of what this drum is all about is a special drum skin: A TwinSkinBrilliance.
It is a specially produced drum skin consisting of two skins which work as a single one. This has nothing to do with DoubleSkin or 'laminated skins'.
New skin qualities are created due to this unique production technique. TwinSkins are also more stabile in tuning as any other skins.
For the FireBall a pre-used, ultra-thin Lambeg skin is taken for the outer skin layer.
These drum skins had an earlier life on one of the big Lambeg drums which are typically used in the north of Ireland.
On the interior of thisTwinSkin a pre-tensioned DRAGONSkinvelvet is used.
Both skins are laminated in a special technique and a 'center dot' (small skin patch) is sandwiched between them as a proof. 
On the exterior a pimple structure is created which causes a more homogeneous and eqally vibrating skin surface.

The frame is made of beech, concave crafted and finished with a red/black dyed polyurethane varnish surface.

Matching to the overall design, the compresser tuning frame is also finished red/black.

The compressor tuning system provides a precise, short-cut overall sound which is very good to mike up and mix/record.

Six open star tuners ensure quick, exact and smooth-running tuning.

All in all perfectly balanced high-end instrument. Not a sportive vehicle. But a racing car.
