The set underwent changes for the '77 Works tour. The copper hoops and rims from the bass drum and toms were changed to chrome rims while the bass drum hoops were black. The lug rosettes were also changed from copper to black.

Carl was too cheap to ship back to the UK from the US. ELP lost millions on the Works Tour with the Orchestra. They went on as a 3 piece and still ended up loosing money but shrunk the loss down to about $3 or $ 4 million.

After Carl Palmer sold the drumset to Ringo Starr, it was sold again at the end of 2015. This time it was offered in a public auction. At Julien's auction, Hollywood CA, an unknown bidder became the new owner of this exceptional drum set at a high bid of $75,000.
