Well, it's available! However it will make the trip to NAMM first.

That is a gorgeous snare drum. But its looks are marred by the unsightly badge. It looks like a band-aide pasted across the face of the Mona Lisa. Give that drum a badge that it deserves!

I agree... the outstanding scroll work seems unfortunately interrupted by that badge. I think a blank upper "panel" would be more suitable for the drum badge. However I think the ideal thing would have been to integrate the badge directly as an engraving... The hand logo would look pretty slick fashioned that way. I would then opt to place other manufacturer info on the inside of the shell.

Gorgeous drum indeed but as soon as I saw it, I thought there was something wrong with the badge placement as well. However the builder always has a reason why certain things are done, as expected so perhaps there is something more to this.
