Default Ludwig "Jazz Festival" snare drums/Simon Kirke's FREE cymbal set up.

G'day fellow VDF mates!.What's the shell composite (type of wood used) &thickness of plies used in Ludwig "Jazz Festival" snare drums in the "Ringo" era&70s?.Also does anyone know what Simon Kirke's FREE cymbal set up is/was?.I've got both 'Classic Drummer" magazine&'83 MD both of which he was featured in, but BOTH magazines DON'T go into detail re: his FREE cymbal set up(nor his drum set up with FREE either!),
Ta mates,

3 ply mahagony popular mahagony 5.5 inch tall x14 wide till 64 ish, cut down to 5 inch x14 from that time forward after 68 a maple popular maple veneer , 3 ply with hard rock maple reinforcement rings till mid to late seventy's ! Good day mate ..
1968 pink champagne holly wood and downbeat snare, and , supra same year very minty kit old pies

once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.
