New Project (11) (1) (2) (1) (1).jpg

The Bodhran Series Banjolele, or Bodhralele as we prefer to call it, represents the fusion of two very different cultures into one incredible and fun musical instrument - Irish and Hawaiian.


Your Bodhralele will be made uniquely for you. It isn't an off-the-peg instrument. Until the moment your order is received, your instrument exists only as raw materials in our workshop. That's when we get to work creating your unique one of a kind Bodhralele.


The Bodhralele is hand crafted from the finest of materials, and features a genuine Irish Bodhran drum for its body, giving a softer, warmer tone than a regular banjolele.


Making one instrument at a time from the absolute finest of materials, we don't start work on a new instrument until the previous one has been completed, inspected, tested and signed off as perfect. This of course means that every Bodhralele is a labour of love.


You get to choose between a plain undecorated skin, or you can specify the design on the drum skin. You can email me a jpeg of the image you want included - you can send me a link to an image you'd like replicated, or you can choose a random celtic design featuring either knotwork or shamrocks.


Every Bodhralele will have an under-bridge piezo pickup fitted, and the design features a 2-bolt adjustable angle neck made from mahogany and real hide drum skin.

  • Made To Order

    Please be aware when purchasing this item that it is 100% made to order.
    Until we receive your order, your bodhralele exists only as raw materials in our workshop. This means it will take a few weeks to produce, finish and post your instrument to you, but the trade off is that you will own a completely bespoke instrument made 100% for you and nobody else.
    If you would rather not pay the full balance up front, you can email us to reserve a place in our production queue and depending on circumstances, the only cost will be a £50 non refundable deposit, with the remaining balance due payable upon completion and before the bodhralele is shipped.
