When Russ was asked to provide the Sullivan Show drumhead for Ringo, it was apparent that putting a new stark white drumhead with graphics on a 50-year-old battered drumkit was going to look out of place. Russ set about creating a way of relic'ing a new drumhead to match the aged patina on the Beatles original Ed Sullivan Show drumhead. The result was a dead-on replica that Ringo was very happy with. We are now offering the "aged" drumheads with the handpainted Beatle drop-T graphics same as the ones done for Ringo's original drumkits
