Every time I hear folks say Ringo “just got lucky”, I wanna scream. He’s a great drummer, an incredibly musical drummer. Two bands, similar positions... The Beatles grab Ringo and proceed to conquer the world, while the Hurricanes lose Ringo and vanish from the scene. Nope…. Ringo deserved, and earned, his place in the Beatles and in the world.one more then..
(he nearly died when he was just a kid)
Oddly, I had never - until seeing this thread - thought about Ringo’s cymbals! In fact, I had never really thought much about anyone else’s cymbals. With the exception of Ian Paice, and that’s only because he was the first Paiste user/endorser of whom I was aware.This is a great thread. Ringo's cymbals have always been a deep void of information with the genral assumption being that he was all Zildjian once he could afford them.
ah! My educated guess is still going with the Custom Arbiter. For some reason I can still see the "CU" on the last blown up picture you posted. Let's keep talking about it!
I agree. For years I fought the battle to make the logo smaller. I lost during my 24-year tenure, but had a small victory after I left.This thread is justification for the ridiculously large and clear LOGO choices of the cymbal manufacturers today.
No doubt what the drummers are playing today. You can read the cymbal logos from the nosebleed seats.
I love the depth you are hitting GiantBeater.
