A custom built steel drum kit with custom road cases and two side console units. The kit was commissioned by and once owned by Carl Palmer and purchased by Ringo Starr. The custom built kit was designed by Palmer and Mike Lowe and manufactured by eight different engineering companies, not a drum manufacturer. It was built in 1973. Each drum features an ornate engraving of woodland scenes created by jeweler Paul Ravn. Palmer has said he was inspired to engrave his drum kit by engravings he saw on a hunting rifle. Palmer used the drums while touring in the 1970s with Emerson Lake and Palmer. At that time the kit included gongs, a church bell and a xylophone which brought the total weight of the set to 2 1/2 tons. The kit comes with five custome road cases built to transport the drums as well as two large cases that house the side console units that support the toms and cymbal stands. An image of the kit fully assembled with console stands is shown for reference only. The cymbals are not included. UPDATE: Cymbals are included with this kit. #ringostarr #ringo #carlpalmer #drums #drumkit #beatles #music
