Zak Starkey's stage used, Zildjian custom-made Olympic cymbal set up during the closing ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics with The Who. Zak is the son of another famous drummer - the Beatles' Ringo Starr! These are the actual stage used cymbals that you see him performing with, though the actual song they performed at the ceremony was pre-recorded, so the sound heard at the show was not that of the cymbals as they are painted and then used on stage. The cymbals were painted to represent the Olympic colors; therefore, the cymbals have a muted sound and do not sound like a traditional cymbal that is made to resonate. These cymbals were made for show by Zildjian, and they are one-of-one, played during the 2012 Olympic Ceremony on TV in front of millions of people with The Who. A video of the performance can be seen by copying and pasting the following link in your browser: The five cymbals are all 24” each x 5, and were custom made by Zildjian exclusively for this performance. Comes with a Zak Starkey letter of authenticity from Donn Bennett and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
