The Beatles' first 20" Drop-T logo drumhead # 1 was created by Eddie Stokes in April/May of 1963. Based on in-depth research and forensic photo analysis, by Russ Lease, the original was a 20” diameter drumhead in smooth white with a Ludwig script logo decal and hand-painted Beatles logo using the same Tempora paint as used on the original. This particular drumhead was used on Ringo’s 1963 Ludwig Downbeat model drum kit.

Each drumhead is serial numbered and comes with a Letter Of Authenticity signed by the artist, R. W. Lease..


The original Beatles logo drumhead # 1 had a smooth white finish and is not available in the vintage-aged look.


Please know that we are offering the drumhead with the graphic artwork.


NOTE: Each wall display is made to order, allow 4 to 6 weeks to ship.
