Chamber member Mike Shorer recently undertook one of his most complicated commissions yet, a re-creation in silver-gilt, rubies and enamel of the Beatles’ Kit when they appeared at Shea Stadium.
Every machine head, tone and volume controls are in exactly the same place as on John, Paul and Georges guitars, the hi-hat foot pedal works, as does the bass drum pedal. They were once called the Silver Beatles, hence the name on the drum. The guitars are about 10″ tall, to give an idea of scale.
