Am I the only one who likes the Gretsch stop sign badge better than the round one?
If I ever order a new Gretsch set I'd prefer the stop sign badge they used in the 2000s.

I used to dislike every badge but the round badge - but I have a set of square badge Gretsch that I love. But I still love the round badge the best.

I have a snare the was my brother's from the 1960's. Beautiful but no round badge only the sticker inside. I thought about selling it and priced it with and without badge. The difference was about what badge would have cost me. I said heck with it and kept the snare

I’m not a drop G guy. 70’s is cool. 80 square badge is the best. I can live with the round badge on my Broadcasters.

I had a terrible experience with my first 1981 Gretsch kit so that soured me

I have owned mostly stop sign badge kits and one round badge (2013) - I prefer the aesthetics of the round badge over the stop sign badge .
