About Us – The brainchild of Brett Sawmy & Mark Brownhill, Drum Depot opened in December 2011.
Inspired by the lack of dedicated drum stores and driven by their passion for music and drumming, they decided the only way forward was to open their very own drum store.
If Brett & Mark made Drum Depot, who’s the daddy?
To be honest, this question is far too disturbing for us to answer. So instead, here are some facts about the DD duo.
A successful local businessman and experienced gigging drummer, Mark can frequently be seen showing off his skills on the local gigging circuit.
Brett, a respected and accomplished drummer, was signed by Parlophone/EMI as part of the band Ether and toured the UK and Europe, gaining valuable experience along the way.
Working with renowned producers, including Al Stone (Jamiroquai), Donal Hodgson (Sting & The Police), and Roy Spong (The Cure & Oasis), what Brett doesn’t know about drumming isn’t worth knowing.
They’ve now combined all of their experience, know-how, savvy, and skills into creating Wales’ largest drum store.
