Cymbals   

This desirable information is still being compiled. I can tell you that Ringo used Ajax, Zyn, Super Zyn, Zildjian & Paiste. Stay tuned.

To start the journey of learning about the cymbals that Ringo used is more complicated than the typical answer that he used all Zildjian 14 or 15 inch hi hats with 18 & 20 inch crash/ride cymbals

Let's step back in time to 1959/60 when Ringo was using his Ajax Edgeware drum kit with Rory Storm & The Hurricanes.
