Like it or not, aesthetics do play a role in nearly everything we purchase, from drums to smartphones and plenty more.
I have absolutely seen people on this forum stating they would not buy a kit due to it's badging.

Badges are everything. Per Andy, they make all the difference.

That would have to be a pretty hideous badge to keep me from buying a kit I otherwise loved.

Like at least as bad as this.

The badge is both the most emotive & expensive component on a drum. Coming second is finish - tonal quality being somewhere in the mix of lower tier considerations. Of course, most drummers will tell you it's the reverse of that ;)

The script badges are IMO the pinnacle of badge design.

Rogers. Sonor. Guru.

Worst badge in the business? We are so extremely lucky in this world to have drumsets at all. Debating badges is such a first world luxury. I'd rather have a drum set with a bad badge than no drumset at all.

That said, I'm not offended by badges.

On another note, it amazes me that people will pay a premium for an instrument that has the original hang tags and that sort of marketing fodder.

Score a huge one for the marketers. They really did their job thoroughly.

I've noticed a few companies that make such a big deal about their shell designs and less hardware seem to have no problem securing their badges with ugly screws.

Might not make you like it any better, but there are two badges so that however you mount the tom there will be a badge visible to the audience. When the audience hears how amazing your drums sound, we want them to know that they're Yamaha.
