So no i don't think there is a particular problem at the moment in terms of the pound being too strong for exports.
England has long had a troubled economy and suffered a loss of its manufacturing base, like many industrialized nations. So it is good to see an English drum company. I have Hardcases, which are made in England, and I like English made stuff in general.
