Hello Rob, Just got my drum last week and it is awesome! The craftsmanship is superb and the sound is exactly the way I wanted it in full tonal with the boom when needed...It is twice as light as my previous drum and a joy to play. I have been playing with my band and at the local session and drawing attention already to that crisp, fresh sound. Thank you very much, definitely worth the wait and hope to get ya up here to the Irish Festival of Oulu in the near future www.irkku.fi ... all the best, Brent Cassidy

Hi Rob: I already ordered my 14"x3.5" Lambeg with patch and protective rim cover via email. Just thought I would sign your guestbook. Jim "seamus" Cusick Pittsburgh, PA (friend of Kip's)

Can you make a 14 inch Lambeg drum with a cutout? And would that pose any limitations to playing? I am interested in ordering. How long is the wait? Thanks

I've had my Metloef drum for more than four years. I was a bit apprehensive at first due to its size, and the dynamic range of the drum was unlike anything I had encountered before. Quite simply, the drum challenged me to look at the bodhran from a totally different perspective. I had to rethink my approach to the instrument. The kangaroo skin head is reliable, flexible, low/no maintenance, forgiving, rarely affected by changes in humidity. The range and tone of the skin are absolutely magnificent. Iím in a working band, and on one occasion, our rhythm guitarist stopped in the middle of a tune and said to me, "My God, you're playing thirds and fifths against the melody!" Rob, thank you so very much for the joy you have given me in this drum.

Dear Rob, long time no speaky. I bought a 15" kangaroo skin adjustable drum from you about 3 years ago. It is sounding fine and I love the adjustable screws for the tuning mechanism. It is particularly good for playing ringing bass notes and I have been working with some jazz musicians recently as well as some killer sessions with Noreen Cullen and Adrian Burns. AM fascinated by the experimental stuff in collaborations and drums - do you still make the double headed drums? What about a drume with a really deep shell, up to 24 inches? Keep up the good work.

Dear Rob, I have been playing the bodhran for 3 yrs now with an OK synthetic skin instrument. I would love to purchase a bodhran from you, one with a good deep sound. Do you have one I could buy before you move to Denmark? Thanks, gigi

Dear Rob, I am new to the bodhran. I will be attending the Irish Fest in Milwalkee where you will be teaching. I will be attending the beginner class taught by Patrick Roe. Would you be kind enough to allow me to sit in on the class you will be teaching to observe only. I feel the exposure would be good. I promise not to interfere. I would also like to look at your drums for purchase in the near future.
