They only are meant to be reference and archive for e.g. used drums.
These pages are also a kind of a Hedwitschak drums online museum ;o)

The SR might be produced again in the future but at the moment the production is simply to costly.

CL Anniversary

Written by

15th anniversary of HEDWITSCHAK DRUMS – time for a special drum model! :)

The fundamental idea of this model is, to mirror all the most important/elementar developments, features and inventions I have made through these years and the craftsman who were involved.
So here are the features:

  • In general it´s a CoreLine - the most successful drum model I´ve ever designed. "stripped down to the maximum" So in this case, it will be more an hybrid between HighEndLine and CoreLine.
  • concave frame. This shall mirror the cooperation with Stevie, my wood turner and, if you ask me - the best tipper maker of the world.
  • EdlauerSelect PRIME goatskin. The best of the best of my "standard skin" I´ve been using for 15 years now. This shall mirror the cooperation with Werner Edlauer who has worked so closely and exclusively with me in order to develop the best special bodhrán skins. The skins selected for this model are extremely even and of medium thickness, on the bit thinner side. Reliable, tuning-stabile, durable, easy to play and a great range of tones on a very universal sound character.
  • Compressor tuning rim. One of the big developments for a clearer, more defined and better-to-mike-up sound, developed, tested, university-proofed with Rolf Wagels.
  • ChangeHED skin holding system. My solution for a skin change system, where not only the skin, but also the tuning rim can be changed. The great thing is, that it also works for synthetic skins who are maker-modified for bodhrán specific use (low tension, bass-focused playing). So you can get different skins and tuning rims for that drum if your style/taste develops/changes over the years.
  • toolless tuning system with 6 open star tuners. Often described as the smoothest, best-to-operate tuning system with a fantastic sensitivity for skin tension feedback.

please note: to provide this great drum at an ever better price, this drum model is only available with the described features. Even for surcharge I can not offer a different skin or tuning rim for the basic setup. Thanks for your understanding!

startHED

Written by

Developed specifically for children aged 4-10, the startHED offers an easy and playful introduction to the world of drum and bodhrán playing. A tool-less, three-point tuning system makes the drum easy to tune, and resilient to possible tuning mistakes or to being put out of tune by accident. Although the startHED was designed for children (with rounded edges, and without any dangerous gaps, holes, or angles), it is NOT A TOY, but a musical instrument. As the tuning screws protrude from the frame, thus permitting the sound to escape even when placed on a flat surface, the startHED can also be used as a table drum. The startHED is equipped with a natural drum skin specifically selected for this purpose and is guaranteed to be of European origin (traceable!). A taped edge allows for a more harmonious sound. startHED means joy of playing right from the start… so get startHED!

Carbondhrán

Written by

The Carbondhran is the result of a spectacular collaboration.

While we were exhibiting at the international trade fair in 2014, we started chatting with the exhibitor next to us, a boat builder, who was presenting a carbon fiber part for a tidal power plant, which lead to the question whether the advantages of modern materials could also be used in bodhrán building.

We started working on the first pilots with great motivation, and asked Stevie Moises to join us as our mold maker.  

Our aim was to build a bodhrán frame with an optimum shape and optimum functionality, for which it would make sense to use such an expensive high-tech material. In other words, we wanted to design a bodhrán that would be impossible to build with common manufacturing processes and materials, and to break new ground in bodhrán building.

We had to invest a lot of time, considerable effort, and quite a bit of money, but the finished product speaks for itself:

CARBONDHRÁN BLACK/RED

  • 37x15
  • ChangeHED skin holding system
  • compressor tuning frame
  • REMO Skyntone drum skin (or different drum skin on request)

 Black:

Carbon with visible fading to black on the inside and outside, matt varnish. 695 EUR

 Red:

Red metallic varnish on the outside, carbon on the inside, high-gloss varnish. 725 EUR




The Carbondhran has a hand-friendly, elegant design, convex on the inside and concave on the outside, with a more pronounced layout than that of our concave wooden frames. In addition, the Carbondhran weighs less than a comparable wooden frame.

At the open side of the drum, the thin carbon frame is bordered by a black varnished, rounded wooden frame, providing the usual comfort to the player.

This outstanding drum is completed by our ChangeHED skin holding system and is delivered with a compressor tuning frame.

As we want to provide a coherent overall concept, we offer the Carbondhran with REMO Skyntone synthetic skin as the standard variant. Other drum skins are, of course, available on request.

To be able to keep the price down in spite of the extremely costly production process and material, this model is manufactured in small series and is therefore only available in one size and with two surface options.  

Special thanks goes to Antony Lenagan and Ulf-Michael Matthees, who both were enquiring about a carbon bodhrán at the same time independently. Both were supporting this project right from the start and were of great help!

 

GALLERY

Basic idea: to improve the acoustics of the bodhrán and to offer the bodhrán player a better sound gain (usually all the good sound exits at the back of the bodhrán).
The basic idea was to offer a bodhrán for people who do not wish to get their hand on a skin of a dead animal. In this framework I called the first prototypes "vegetarian solution".
Die DSDT war die einzige DoubleSkin Trommel, die ich je gebaut habe.
Leider ist das spezielle Furnier, das wir bei der GPS verwendet haben nicht mehr lieferbar. Wir haben uns deswegen entschlossen die GPS Produktion ruhen zu lassen.
Die MOS ist ein Sonder-Serienmodell, das nach meinen persönlichen Vorstellungen gestaltet wurde. Sie wurde von der MOS2 abgelöst.
