Default Removing a logo from a Fiberskyn 3 head

Is it possible to remove the Remo logo from a Fiberskyn 3 head? I tried a touch of fingernail polish removal, but the black logo began to smear and I stopped before I totally ruined the look of the head. Should I continue with this method, use something else, or just stop altogether?

You can use nail polish remover.
Just put more on a clean area of the cloth after it gets dark.
Keep repeating until the stain is gone. The Fiberskyn doesn't really have a coating to come off like a coated head, but I did get a Remo logo off a Coated Ambassador with Acetone the other day.

Just rub lightly, and keep using a clean area until the dark spot is cleared up.
Let it dry between cleaning a little so the coating doesn't get too soft and disolve.

I used a WHITE school art eraser (say's School SMART on it) to get the rest of the dark spot off. It got it clean enough.

It was a bass drum head I had that I wanted to use it on the front.
I didn't want have a logo on the bottom possibly distracting from the big logo on the head. I also didn't want to wait for the heads I have on order to come in...

Otherwise I would have left it.

What is it with people wanting to remove logos from batter heads these days anyway?
No one but you see's it, so what's up with this?

Thanks so much for the help! I'll definitely try more nail polish remover and post the results. I want to remove the Remo logo because I plan on putting a Ludwig decal in its place. I just ordered a classic maple kit and I want the kick reso head to look as pristine as the rest of the kit does. Thanks again for the suggestions!

If you wanted to avoid chemicals, I would try extremely fine sandpaper (start at 400 grit and carefully rub just the logo). Also use finer grits to polish the surface back up.
