Here’s a bit of “Trivia”… The botanical name for Red Cedar, Cedrus deodara, derives from the Sanskrit term devadaaru, which means “wood of the gods” and several Hindu legends refer to forests of the devadaaru. So, purchase one of these Red Cedar Bodhrans, add a bit of the “wood of the gods” to your next musical evening.
The enclosed product insert will give you the basics to get started. Includes a tipper and a tuning wrench.
