This Drop-T logo drumhead was also originally created by Eddie Stokes specifically for Ringo’s 1964 Ludwig Super Classic drum kit, which he used on The Beatles first world tour. Based on in depth research and forensic photo analysis, the original 22” diameter drumhead is coated white with a hand painted Beatles logo and Ludwig script logo using the same tempora paints as used on the original.
Offered in a New or Aged look.
(AGED means that the head was given an aged look to match what a 50-year old drum head would look like today.)
"The drumheads are hand-painted replicas by well-known Beatles drumhead authority, Russ Lease, based on his in-person, hands-on, and forensic photographic research. Lease has also developed a vintage aged finish for the heads identical to the patina on the original Ed Sullivan Show drumhead which he owned for over 21 years. Russ was also commissioned by Ringo to replace all of his original drop-T Beatle drumheads which had been lost over the years.Each drumhead is serial numbered and comes with a letter of authenticity signed by Russ Lease. Additionally, since each head is hand-painted to order, any of the seven drop-T's can be applied to any size drumhead, even if it's not historically accurate."
Please know that we are offering the drumhead with the graphic artwork only.
NOTE: Each drum is made to order, allow two weeks for shipping.
