Darius Bartlett - A good friend and mentor, Darius is at the forefront of framedrum technology with both shells, skins, and voicing of instruments. His bodhrans are some of the most acoustically sensible instruments you will come across.

Seamus O'Kane - A true living legend, and a hysterical individual. His drums are some of the best I know of. Email him and ask him to tell you why goats smell the way they do.

Albert Alfonso - Makes fine drums, and is just up the road from me. The best fashion sense of any bodhran maker.

Dave Settles - No drum collection is complete without a deep shell currach drum. You all must have one!

Paul McAuley - This guy knows his craft. He does custom work also. Give him a shout!
