Collection: Hiraeth Series

The Hiraeth Series is an adaption of the Traditional series with a raw bell, less lathing and more hammering with a larger bell on the rides to give it more impact.

The meaning of Hiraeth (pronounced "hear-ith" *roll the r) is of homesickness or a deep longing, yearning, nostalgia for Wales and the Welsh culture. Dylan the owner of Red Cymbals feels this about his family’s Welsh origins and Wales as a Welsh Australian.

Dylan designed this series with Rhys and Geraint from Tarian Drums - drum makers based near Cardiff in Wales. Check out their drums at
