    It's got a corner ding, so he's replaced it with the one from his mono box.

    I wonder what this means at the end of the description - isn't it the original then?
    "The Beatles “Drop-T” logo drum head was painstakingly re-created to look the way the original head first appeared on that historic day."

    Does anybody know the condition of this item?

    Edit to add…
    "The top load sleeve is in near mint minus condition and would be near mint if not for the bumped upper right front gatefold corner, but it is overall very clean and fresh with very minor abrasions."
    That's what I needed to know...

    Should be very good considering a number of parts have been replaced...

    "When setting up the “hybrid” kit to record, Paul removed the original Beatles “Drop-T” logo front drum head and filled the bass with what appeared to be a blanket to muffle its sound."

    "Ringo is seen playing the kit with Paul on the music video “Take It Away,” which was recorded in 1981. The drums were returned to Ringo with the bass drum arriving minus the original “Drop-T” logo front head, hoop, T-rods and Claws."

    Looks like Paul decided to Take It Away!

    Is Ringo short of cash or something or is the Mrs having a spring clean?
     
  9. In other news, Pete Best has put his VG+ Stereo copy #2036158 up for auction on eBay.

    It's my understanding that they made about eight or so n°00000001 copies.

    Each band member got one, Mal got one... I assume George Martin, the engineers, etc. got one.

    Would you rather have him doing infomercials again?

    Where did you get this information?
    I really think that only one cover with the number 0000001 exists.

    Yes, your copy is really one of the earliest ever pressed.
    Maybe that some -1/1 G copies exist, who knows?

    The Beatles got 1 to 4. Surprised John and Paul let Ringo have 0000001.

    Ringo was a tough guy: he has a boxer's nose... :D

    Indeed; his last couple of books have been for charity.

    I recall reading it somewhere.

    The source I read it from could certainly be wrong, however.

    The thing I remember clearly (in addition to each Beatle getting a 0000001), is the fact that Mal also got one.

    I expected it to be in the cover 0000001 .... if not, as the original set should not be correct...IMO...

    People assigned to the insertion of records inside covers, did not give importance to the fact that the cover number one contained the first pressed copies: just there were outer-covers and records and they were paired randomly.

    Aren't there numbered copies of the Stereo and Mono versions?

    I remember when the Dezo Hoffman(?) copy came up the auction said Lennon had 20 of the lowest numbered ones and Dezo was allowed to take one of the #10 - 20 ones.

    You're right, but I've always thought that this is the Beatles Music Forum and not the Steve Hoffman Music Forum... :D
    Seriously speaking, I posted this thread in the wrong section: in Music Corner instead of in the correct Third Party Sales and Auctions; I apologize for this. Sorry.
