Bass Drum Shield Logo - Vintage Drumheads & Logos
Each shield has been designed and modeled after popular drummers from the 1920's through the 1970's. Customize your logo by choosing from our selection of shield crests, sizes, colors and vintage lettering styles. The shield logos are then monogrammed with your initials. We offer 2 different products; Shield Logos which you apply yourself or Shield Drumheads that we put together for you. We have been manufacturing Bass Drum Shield Logos for over 20 years and are positive you will be enthusiastic about the style & quality.
Design your own Shield Logo and apply the logo to the drumhead yourself. They are easy to apply, just like a sticker. Logos are made of premium grade vinyl and will adhere to uneven surfaces and areas. They appear to look painted on because no backgrounds or clear materials are used. The background of your logo is your bass drumhead. Each logo is custom sized to fit and offered in 4 classic colors. Logos come with easy to read Application Instructions with photographic visuals. They apply in about 10 minutes.

Port Hole Options
Having a drum port gives the drum better projection and more attack. You can easily add or remove dampening and quickly change your drum sound by having a ported bass drum head. We suggest installing a mic hole port if you play live or where a sound tech would need to mic your drum for recording. The most requested bass drum hole size is 4 inches because it works best with printed graphics. Try and keep bass drum holes 1.5 to 3 inches away from the hoop edge when creating your design.
Simple Port Hole - Hole with no protection
Any size port hole can be installed. We suggest 4", 5" or 6" sizes. Holes smaller than 3.5" should only be used as an air release port. Try and keep holes 1.5 to 3 inches away from the hoop edge. Simple Port Hole specs and features.
Port Hole Ring - Stylish hole protection ring
Port Hole Rings add a finished look to your drumhead. The two-part system is made of hard plastic which snaps together and protects the hole from both sides. Available in a variety of sizes and colors. Port Hole Ring specs and features.
Hole Reinforcer - Hole with backer ring
Hole Reinforcers are a thin plastic ring which installs on the back side of your drumhead. They are light weight, durable and protects the hole from ripping. Available in a variety of sizes. Hole Reinforcer specs and features.
KickPort - Drum acoustic maximizer
Add KickPorts for more low-end sound & punch. It increases attack & definition with improved feel and more power. Made of a hard plastic which protects the hole from damage and ripping. Available in a variety of colors. KickPort specs and features
