With the new store close to opening the theory of people traveling to see some drum kits you will never see in the UK shops has already started to happen, a lot of drummers tend to think that traveling to a drum shop anywhere in the country is not worth the time and order drum kits on-line due to the shop not having the facilities to try before you buy or to drive all the way and find that the drum kits are not in stock or greeted by some small shop, I should know as I have stood in the smallest shop in the world for the past 20 years!
Over the past 24 months I have been working hard at trying to get the balance right of on-line drum kit sales and face to face sales. Drum Shop UK business has been run from the smallest shop in the UK and has been very successful but now its time to give back to the customers what they want loads of drum kits, accessories, dedicated cymbal room, tuition, electronics and everything else.
All of the drummers who have came to the new Drum Shop UK store have been very positive with their comments which makes me proud of what I have tried to achieve by having in house drum tuition, Beginner drum kits to Craviotto drum kits, some of the world’s finest drummers have graced our shop over the past twenty years and the names are all here to see. If it’s a beginner kit set up and tuned with the right drum heads and the correct advice then we hope we can offer this all under one roof.
The building when I bought it was all run down and business was on the downturn but with help and dedication I decided to build a new store like no other.
We have taken a few photographs to show you how your new Drum Shop UK is now coming along and getting near completion.
Once we have all the Drum kits moved in, Cymbals set up, TV’s and sound installed we will post some more
