As the historian and curator for Ringo’s Beatle drum sets and gear, it’s great to be able to share information that might not be known to Beatle fans. Speaking to this point, did you know that the snare drum that came with Ringo’s first Ludwig drum kit landed up being his “Go To” snare during his career with the Beatles? From May of 1963, Ringo used it with all five of his Ludwig drum kits, in the studio, on tours, in film and in publicity photos. Take a close look at relative photographs, movies or videos of the Beatles and you will always see him using his ‘63 Jazz Festival model snare drum. Think about the long list of songs that this iconic snare was used on and the number of amazing sounds he managed to create with it. Priceless! Another interesting point of fact is that finding one just like Ringo’s is virtually impossible.
