his riveted cymbal in let it be is his Zyn with rivets. the rivets are in a pentagon shape and it sounds like an Ns12 cymbal as well. he got it somewhere at the beginning of the pepper sessions.
what's the far right down by the floor tom 3rd cymbal Diameter etc. Giant Beater

That would be his famously amazing sounding 18" Zildjian crash ride (or is it Zilco?) he received at the beginning of the Beatles for sale sessions and used since. You can especially hear it all over the Help! album. Please refer to my Ringo cymbals timeline thread for more pictures and history.

Isn’t it amazing that after 50 years we finally are getting the answers to questions a lot of us had for most of our lives. Video evidence of exactly what was played on that album. Gear geeks rejoice!!!!!

December 20th- 1965. Ringo goes Paiste!
As you can see, the Beatles were gifted or delivered almost a brand new set of gear around their London Christmas show 1965. A fender Bassman appeared, a black Stratocaster with matching headstock, and what looks like an Arbiter Custom Paiste 602 20" cymbal. Whether this is the 20" 602 medium ride we now see in Get Back is up for conjecture, but my thought is that this one is a different one. Though @toddlittle827 did say that these Arbiters would have red ink stamps like the medium ride discovery in the new get back documentary.

I have portions of a 1971 Dallas-Arbiter catalog. I'll see if I have the page with the Tamba-Ching

text reads: “A very useful piece of equipment for the busy modern drummer. The Tamba-Ching played by hand or fitted as illustrated add an unusual rhythmical accompaniment to all types of music from Latin American to Beat.”

Those are great pictures, very clear and conclusive to me. I'm going with GB's story!
Now can we please move onto the Tea Towel , I'm voting from Café Rouge.
Not much talk about the towels. I could see in the film Speedy Towel Company embossed/printed on the towels, you know the continuos towel on a roll machine. Probably right out of Abbey Road or maybe Twickenham.
