    Dear friends of 'old-school-bodhráns' :)
    Last chance for TrHED bodhráns orders which will be finished by end of October 2015 !
    I will start making on Wednesday, 7th of October, so orders will be accepted (depending on skin availability of course) until then.
    The skins for TrHED bodhráns are very rare and as there are just a few more left at the moment, only a few TrHED orders can be taken.

    Next TrHED series will presumably be made in summer/autumn 2016.
