Ringo used the same snare (his first OBP Jazz festival) on everything from the time he got it until the Beatles ended. As mentioned he had another one (possibly two others) but for whatever reason he only seems to have used his original. That drum is readily identifiable by the placement of the badge and the pattern of the wrap and it turns up in literally EVERY photo where the snare is visible, whether on tour or in the studio. Ringo continued to use it even with his Thermogloss maple "Hollywood" set during the later years.

It should be considered the single most important snare drum in history since it alone was on so many important recordings and/or concert events.

Here's a picture I took of it from when it was on display with the "Ed Sullivan" set (yes it was used on that show too) when the drums were on display at the Grammy Museum eight years ago.

I have a 1964 Pioneer, the "poor man's version" as K.O. so aptly put. It lacks a little in depth and has two less lugs, but the wrap is beautiful. It's a great snare.

Yes, they'll do the trick quite nicely...

I have two Oyster Black Pearl Pioneers. That's as close as I am likely to get, but i like them.

I recently acquired a third Pioneer. This one is pre-serial number (no date stamp) and has the short arm version of the P-83.
