Default YAMAHA Logo size(s)

Anyone know the exact size of the lettering for the 80's era YAMAHA bass drum logo?

2.5", 3" or 80mm?

I might be able to find out.

I may even still have one of those heads (from the 80's).

Extra credit:

Where the logos 'size specific' (a 26" got the same size as a 20")?

Where there any colours besides white, grey(silver) and black?

Other than a few kits in catalog pics that had a different logo like the circle with the design in it, I think the logo was standard size for every head.

Mine were Black heads with the silver/gray ink.
White obviously had Black, but I never saw a Black head with White logo.

I was not able to find the heads, and no one has gotten back to me on the logo size.
The logo looks pretty big on the head (--and I think the blue kit in you post pic was from around the 84 catalog ). I'd guess the size to be between 8-10", probably 10" from what I remember on my heads, and looking at the pic.

My best guess is all I can do on this one....
