You mean to say my Rockstar Pro kit isn't "pro" after all?I will NEVER buy / own_______, and here's why.
Anything with "professional" in the name / brand, because it just isn't.
All I know is that those Saturn 3 badges can be seen from outer space. That's all I'm saying about that.I rather like them..You mean the new one that is a stylized "M"..? What offends you about it? Remember..I don't like red drums for no reason, so it's OK!
I see this hate for Mapex badges a lot on here. I honestly don't really get it. I've always thought the silver badges on my older Saturns is nicer looking that what comes on lots of other drums. Is there any specific badges that are hated more than others?I take solace in knowing that I my pettiness is not unique with regard to the awful Mapex badges and Pearl mounts.
I thought the old Mapex badges on the Saturns and Orions were classy looking (though I'm probably in the minority on that).I see this hate for Mapex badges a lot on here.

For me I explain, i'll never own Mapex, not because of the badge, it's a whole : the brand name sounds terrible in French, the drum company has no history (I say that, but I own a brand that has history but no "present" ) - and most of their kits looks too "show off" for me : no basic colour, black hardware,... Still it sounds good and it's well built.I think I'll have to add the Gretsch Motor City drums to the list. Somebody should tell all the people trying to sell them on Ebay that they really aren't collector's items.
Having said that, I'd still like to get my hands on a Renown Maple/silver sealer kit.
And on badges...........Anyone who does or doesn't buy a kit because of it's badge has rocks in their head. I can't think of ANYTHING that would be of lower priority when looking to buy a kit !!
I saw this and thought of you. "More fun than a cajon!"a Cajon, I simply refuse.
