I tweeted Drumdrops maybe a year or two ago about making a drum library based on Ringo Starr’s Let It Be/Abbey Road-era “tea towel” kit sometime in the future, and I wondered if it was still a possibility.

I know they recorded a five-piece 1960s Ludwig Hollywood kit before (Vintage Folk-Rock Kit), a “tea towel” kit (Memphis Soul Kit), and one based on Ringo’s early Beatles kit (Vintage 1965 Ludwig Super Classic Kit), but his 1969-70-era kit has a classic sound of its own and would be fun to use.

Sonic Reality has a similar library called "Sixties Downbeat Kit", produced by Ken Scott, and it is wonderful and unique and gives a great 1966-67 Ringo sound, but I thought that Drumdrops could produce a good Ringo "tea towel" kit (and maybe even record Ludwig Super Classic Kit with tea towels/1967 muffling techniques) and bring their own usual great standards/affordability to the project.
