The 5AL was designed by Ringo Starr. Ringo brought drums to the forefront of rock and pop drumming. It features a classic 5A diameter, a quick taper and an oval bead for a dark, warm tone suited for a variety of applications. Because of its resilience, responsiveness and durability, hickory is the most commonly used wood for drum sticks. Hickory is the classic drum stick feel. Oval wood tip provides a dark, warm tone suited for multiple applications and short, quick taper for a more forward balance with less rebound.

Developed in collaboration with Starr and used with The Beatles. One particular pair is featured on this Worthpoint page for an eBay listing.
Serious Collectors.Up for auction is a set of Arbiter "RINGO STARR" Model drumsticks, that were used by Ringo during the August 13th 1966 concert, at Olympia Stadium in Detroit. Sticks were made by Ivor Arbiter, who owned a music store in England and made signature sticks for certain groups from the mid 60s to early 70s. Sticks were given to my father, who was a bodyguard at the concert that night. He asked Ringo for them earlier and Ringo handed them to my father as he walked off stage after the show. My father stood behind Ringo for the whole show. For proof of authenticity, copies of these photos will be included in the sale. The Beatles performed two shows that day, one at 2:00 and later at 7:00. Between sets i was able to go up on stage and get a photo sitting on Ringo's drum kit. Autograph is not included. Not accepting offers below starting bid and I will not respond if you do, but I will be glad to answer any questions you may have.Thank you very much

Used on the bass drum for Revolver and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, as stated by assistant engineer Geoff Emerick when discussing "Tomorrow Never Knows" for The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions: The Official Story of the Abbey Road Years by Mark Lewisohn.
Another distinctive element of "Tomorrow Never Knows" was Ringo's hypnotic drum sound. “I moved the bass drum microphone much closer to the drum than had been done before,” says Emerick. “There’s an early picture of the Beatles wearing a woollen jumper with four necks. I stuffed that inside the drum to deaden the sound. Then we put the sound through Fairchild 660 valve limiters and compressors. It became the sound of Revolver and Pepper really. Drums had never been heard like that before.” And Ringo's reaction? "He loved it, there's no question of that. They all loved the sounds. It was exactly what they wanted."
