Thread Name: Sometimes goes limp (bow hair)
Subject: RE: Sometimes goes limp
Boy don't I feel silly for having given a serious reply on this thread! At the risk of being seen as stuffy, I'm going to pass on a word of caution about drying bodhran heads. It's been recommended to me to use a heating pad rather than a hair dryer to dry out a bodhran head. There's less risk of overdrying it and splitting it that way. That being said, I've dried mine out by exposing it to a bonfire for a second or too with no ill effect, so make your own decisions.
