Purchase a BOD Product

We are working hard to develop and trouble shoot a new website with full on-line shop, but until that is available, here’s how it works.

Please contact us through the form below and let us know what you would like.  We will reply to confirm availability, pricing and packing and shipping expenses, and if you are happy with that, we will raise an invoice which you can pay in British Pounds Sterling via BACS, international funds transfer or PayPal.  Upon receipt of payment, we will ship the goods from England via tracked and insured delivery; someone will have to sign for the package.  Be aware:  any import or customs duties or taxes will be your responsibility. If you are outside the UK you may want to check the regulations and possible charges for your country.

Do please read our full Terms and Conditions.

You can purchase off the shelf products as described on this site, or you can have your BODdrums customised – take a look at our Custom Finishes and Uniques pages to get some ideas.

Try Out a BODDrum

The BODdrum and Talking Bodhrán create a very different sound world from the traditional bodhrán, and need to be heard and played to be appreciated.

We are happy to get together so you can try out the drums before buying. We are based near Cambridge, Ely and Newmarket, and have a great new workshop space, with plenty of room indoors or out for social distancing.  Alternatively, we may be able to travel to meet up in the UK mainland, pub sessions are a great opportunity. Again, just contact us through the form below and we can arrange something.

Our basic 14 inch BODDrum is also available for sale through Hobgoblin Music, you can find BODDrums and give them a try at their shops in London, Canterbury and Brighton.

Keep an eye on our blog (you can subscribe over there on the right hand side of the page!) and our Friends page for news of festivals. For 2021 we hope to be back on the festival scene, Covid situation permitting.  We bring with us a full range of demo products and lots of product for sale.  Festivals are another great opportunity to hear our drums in action, as we have a growing coterie of professional drummers using BOD Drums.
