Cool Ringo Starr Drum Key on Ebay

Hey all,

I thought this may be of interest to some...

This limited edition collectible drum key comes in a black velveteen pouch and is the only single accessory available for purchase from the fifteen Ringo - Starr Festival snare drums.

Backstory: The drum key logo was created in part by Ringo himself. The front depicts the Starr Festival name and an image of the snare drum itself. The back shows the year (1963) of Ringo's original Ludwig Jazz Festival snare drum, which has a manufacturers ink stamp date of April 18. Assembly of the 15 Starr Festival snare drums began on April 18, 2018, 55 years to the day to match Ringo's. A minimum number of drum keys had to be produced though only 15 were needed. It was decided to make the remainder available to Beatle and Ringo fans that wanted to have a tie-in to the Starr Festival snare drum project.
