Ringo purchased his first Super Classic kit on May 31, 1964 (he purchased his second kit in 1965 on a US tour). The color of the Super Classic was similar to that of the Downbeat, the differences between them were the measurements of the bodies, the Super Classic kits contained a 14 "x22" bass drum, a 9 "x13" Tom Holder and a Floor Tom 16 "x16". These kits were also used with a 5 "x14" Ludwig Jazz Festival snare drum. This model was used until 1969. Fun fact: In the first show this kit was used, it wasn't Ringo who played, but Jimmie Nicol on the tour of Denmark, Holland, Hong Kong and Australia in 1964.more
