    Ringo's Cymbals- a timeline

    September 18th- 1968. Recording Birthday Here I see and hear the 20" Paiste 602 medium ride. I believe it is the first cymbal struck at the into of Birthday at 0.04. He hits another cymbal at 0:45 in the video and it sounds a bit higher pitched than the intro cymbal, one of these sounds like...

    Ringo's Cymbals- a timeline

    for sure man, I was going to do a recap when I am done with the timeline through 1970. In fact, is there a way to pin the timeline to the top of the thread? Is there a moderator around?

    Ringo's Cymbals- a timeline

    June 28th 1968- recording Goodnight Possibly the best picture of any of his cymbals, probably a 20" 50's zildjian and could be the "Help! on the beach one" (though it is hard to see that familiar lathe line but it could be the lighting), but I am not sure we have seen this cymbal in his...

    Ringo's Cymbals- a timeline

    February 11th 1968- Recording Hey Bulldog Looks to me to be his trusty 18" and 20" 602 medium ride. You can hear the 602 especially on the ending crash of Lady Madonna on the second drum track. Now I am curious if we can tell if the bottom hi hat could be the early 602 sound edge like we...

    Ringo's Cymbals- a timeline

    Here is the stamp! Very faint, my guess is that this cymbal is in the 1800gram range but I'll weigh it asap. It has a higher pitched sound to it, I hear the ending of please please me every time I play it! Here are some previously posted pictures that lead me to believe his was a Stambul, or at...

    Ringo's Cymbals- a timeline

    Howdy neighbor! Yes I'd love to! I recently got this Stambul, sounds great and just like the end of the song Please Please Me. It makes me wonder @type85 if he had another similarcymbal like your Stambul... Or if this is an Ajax? Also, I recently received this 50's Zildjian that I think...

    Ringo's Cymbals- a timeline

    October 1962- Looks like 4 rivets were reinstalled. I am pretty sure the PPM cymbal had four rivet holes. Interesting shot over Little Richard's shoulder-- when the Beatles opened the night. Looks to me it is what I think is the Stambul and I would say a calfskin tom head. January...

    Ringo's Cymbals- a timeline

    Thanks for posting this. Here is an example of Ringo's Arbiter blue label pair. I think he started using these as well as the Ludwig Ringo Starr model 13A's on the '66 tour. Pro Mark would be the perfect company to remake these, they have some models similar but nothing exact. Also going...

    Ringo sold it along with OBP #1 kit a few years ago... Jim Irsay has it maybe?

    Ringo's Cymbals- a timeline

    September 23rd 1967. Filming I am the Walrus The return of thee 18". The cymbal in the foreground matches the flat profile of the All You need is Love cymbal, I believe it to be the 602 medium ride. September 25th- 1967. Recording Fool on the Hill Not a great photo, but I am still seeing...

    Ringo's Cymbals- a timeline

    That is a 50's Stambul (Paiste origin) that I found online and used it to compare to Ringo's 20" from the early Beatles era. I own Ajax cymbals with the big bell but recently, the lathing views on some of these photos as well as hearing the sound at the end of the song, Please Please Me, lead me...

    Ringo's Cymbals- a timeline

    June 24th 1967 Ringo's right side cymbal looks like the 20" 602 to me. Very specific flat profile and the bell that screams Paiste. Great views of the hi hats and the lathing, note the rivets in the zyn.
