    Default Masters Premium Badge

    Does anybody know if Masters Premium Badges are still available?
    I have an older Masters Custom tom that matches my Premiums exactly except for the badge.

    Badges are pretty hard to come by without purchasing the whole drum. In the best case scenario, you might find a used 8" or 10" tom on eBay that has the badge you need.

    I believe the Masters Custom badge is rectangular. If you remove the 4 screws, you won't be able to cover up all 4 screws with the new Masters Premium badge. It would be better to accept that they are different series/era drums that match well.

    I've been looking for the "Pearl Aluminum Shell" badge that came on my Quarter Toms for a while to no avail. VERY hard to come by.

    Not to mention, those are extremely difficult to remove from an existing Quarter Tom.

    Tell me about it. That's why mine don't exist anymore.

    I don't care for those "vintage" badges they use on the Quarter Toms. When I ordered my set from Masterworks, I asked them to leave the badges off (which they won't do, unfortunately).

    Yes, but they don't put the Masterworks badge on the custom Rocket Toms.

    I ordered them in early December in the ES Comet Sparkle finish. I'm expecting them to arrive in a couple of weeks.
