The Beatles original 22" 'LOVE The Beatles' drumhead was painted by Ringo and used on his 1964 Ludwig Super Classic drum kit. It was first seen when The Beatles performed All You Need Is Love on a BBC world broadcast in 1967. The head was also seen in the movie Magical Mystery Tour and other promotional films like I Am The Walrus.
"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, it can be applied to any size drumhead, even if it's not historically accurate."
NOT AVAILABLE IN AGED look.
