Drum makers should offer drum badge options (they all got them) or a badge designer app-so you pick and put the ones you choose on and can change them if you like. That would be sweet-gimmicky but sweet.

I think the worst badge is one I don't own and really want.

It was a prior Mapex badge I was referring to in my tale. It was a different style.

I think the whole thing is funny, I get a kick out of the importance placed on them.

My Catalina Maple kit had the word "Gretsch" on it 41 times from the factory. How insecure we're they to need it that many times on a 7 piece kit?

No a big fan of Pearl Reference and Reference Pure badges.

For me, they just look so bland and uninspiring.

Big logos on cymbals. Zildjian and Sabian seem to be the worst culprits.

Not overly fussed by badges on drums as I can't see them when I'm playing. Cymbals though I can see and nobody else can, it's like thanks for reminding me it's an A or a K, I would never have guessed!!!

The oversized remo badge on the newer heads is a bit pointless. Any drummer can tell the difference between a Remo and Evans badge.

I personally hate how big the Remo logo has become, but that Sakae logo is absolutely awful.

Perhaps a terrible badge is part of the secret formula for success in drum making?

After all, I can think of at least one company that had classy badges and dissapeared:

There's a good reason for that. No matter how you mount the tom, a badge can be facing forward.

I've been looking into copper snares recently, and this one looks very nice!
... except for the badge. :(
It still looks like an awesome snare though.
