BOD Shop


BOD is relocating to spacious new quarters, which will open fantastic new opportunities once we are settled in.

Unfortunately, during the moving period, our on line shop will be on hiatus, until we can access our goods and fulfill orders promptly again.

Please do contact us to let us know your needs, and we can give you an update on the situation in regards to the particular instrument or accessory you need.

UK Customers only can now purchase our Beaters, Talking Sound Bar and MOpHED Bodhrán Practice Pad in the shop below.

To purchase one of our drums, cases or other items, please contact us directly.

International customers – please contact us directly for assistance on all products.

Note that each “Buy Now” button corresponds only to the item described directly above the button. You will be taken to a Paypal page where you can pay with debit or credit card or use your own Paypal account if you wish.  You will be charged for the item plus UK postage and packaging as described above each button.

If you are buying multiple items, you will need to make each purchase individually, and when we prepare for shipping, we will adjust the postage if necessary and credit you for any overpayment.

For more details and discussion of the playing style of each of our beaters please look at our Beaters page.  Also, if you would like to hear the hot-rod style beaters played on a BODdrum, take a listen to John’s demo video on our Videos page.
