“I stumbled across these guys –  super friendly, great service & went the extra mile as he dismantled a brand new snare to supply the bits I needed at a bargain price. We need to support independent retailers like this guy as you don’t get service like that online. A true gentleman, wide range of stock and a passion for helping people on their drumming journey. I will be making the 180 mile round trip again!!!”

“Truly awesome drum store. Really great guys, super friendly, spent hours trying out new hardware. Really helped to find exactly what I wanted and needed. Highly recommended! Service was just 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!”

“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 has created something quite special 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!”

“Truly amazing. Made by drummers for drummers. Some beautiful gear and great prices. By far the best drum shop I’ve visited and can’t wait to go back again! These guys have great ideas . Looking forward to seeing the future of cariad drums!”

“Dealt with many Drum Shops in the UK…Visited Leigh at Cariad Drums was blown away by the shop and also Leighs knowledge of drums and all things Custom and repair work etc, a real professional within the Industry. Without doubt the best shop in Wales and possibly the UK!!”

“Great Knowledge, fantastic service and positive attitude. leigh is at the helm of the family run business, bringing years of personal experience and know-how. I and loads of questions, which he went out of his way to answer fully and promptly, yet, as other people have mentioned, without the big sell!”

“Fantastic shop for all things drum. Have even started having lessons from the owner which are great value and fun. Cannot rate this place any higher. Check it out!!”

“First time at Cariad Drums yesterday… took son in for a drum lesson. Really friendly and helpful staff. Must admit they have a great setup there. Pretty sure they got anything any drummer would need from full kits to a key to tighten your skins. So get on down there!”

“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!!”

“Visited Cariad Drum Shop for the first time the other day and was amazed by what I saw. I left a happy customer when they managed to fix my Double Pedal and Stool in time for my first gig in 6/7 months this weekend. Cheers guys and good luck.”

“Leigh has a great business here and his repair service on cymbals is unbelievable value! Just had my 8 year old custom crash back – that had a crack on the edge – and now it sounds like a new cymbal! Cant recommend this service enough!”
