Ringo Starr’s drum case
I’m pleased to announce that we have discovered a hugely exciting piece of Beatles Memorabilia!! This gem is Ringo Starr’s drum case used to carry his tom tom drum all over the world when travelling with the Beatles!!
The case is stencilled in two places RINGO STARR THE BEATLES and has a freight label attached that is signed by Ringo. It also comes with a letter signed by Ringo himself stating that the case was in fact his. We have carried out extensive research on the labels on the case and one of them has a date that nails it down to being used to travel to New York for George Harrison’s Concert For Bangladesh in 1971. We also know that this case was certainly used in 1968, around the time of recording the White Album in Abbey Road Studios, and possibly earlier in the Beatles’ career too. This is quite simply one of the nicest pieces of Beatles memorabilia I have seen in a very long time.
