"You say it's your Birthday?"

Drifter in the Dark

In honor of Ringo's birthday today, I was curious about his gear specs. So I went to the source! https://artists.ludwig-musser.com/ringo-starr

I will own a 6.5 COB Supra some day... 😉
Ringo was the one who got me into using a closed hi-hat attachment (X-hat), mounted between the ride cymbal and rack tom. Not only can it give you a different hi-hat sound for certain tunes, but if you're a singing drummer who uses a microphone on a boom stand (like he does), it allows you to play in open-handed position, which is a little more ergonomic; sometimes when you're playing in cross-handed position, your right hand can accidentally hit the mic stand.
