What Our Customers Say!

  • Can’t praise or recommend these guys enough, internet prices in store, often a little cheaper as I found out today. As always, a fantastic welcome and service, will be calling in again – Martin Jones
  • Leigh is a fabulous drummer who knows his kit – top bloke and a very honest guy who I trust implicitly having known him personally for nearly 20 years. Integrity is important to him. He is trying to create something quite special for drummers here. He understands drums so if you are looking for something as a starter kit, something customised for you as a serious musician or anything in between talk to him. You won’t get tucked up! – Paul Rees
  • Cracking place!! Friendly guys who know their stuff. Not all about the big sell, they offer you a chat and a cup of tea whether you’re buying or not! No intimidation for the less experienced drummer like a lot of other shops. – Richard Alwyn Davies
  • I had a great welcome to the Cariad Drum store today, where Leigh gave me a guided tour of the new drum store. I was so impressed with Leigh’s ambition and vision for Cariad Drums and would strongly recommend that all local drummers check it out. You certainly won’t be disappointed!! – Airion Roberts

  • Truly awesome drum store. Really great guys, super friendly, spent hours trying out new hardware. Really helped to find exactly what I wanted/needed. Highly recommended! Service was fantastic! They even tuned my entire kit to help show me the sound I was looking for after having it reskinned. Really comfortable environment, and surrounded by some really awesome gear. Cheers guys! – Lowri Gear

  • Leigh has a great new business here and his repair service on cymbals is unbelievable value. Just had my 8 year old custom a crash back – that was sounding washy due to a small crack on the edge – and it sounds like new due to the smooth scallop Leigh has put in it. Can’t recommend this service enough! – Gareth Phillips
