Ringo. He has inspired generations of drummers around the world. Zildjian is honored to have collaborated with the incomparable Ringo Starr on his Artist Series Drumsticks. Ringo helped us design a very versatile stick with 5A type dimensions, hickory wood, an elongated oval tip, and our exclusive DIP® coating in a vibrant purple. Of course, the stick is imprinted with Ringo's signature and trademark star.
