Batter Badge vented impact pads have patented Armourphragm™ designs that protect your drumheads and enhance their tonal characteristics. The unique peripheral edges and die-cut holes of the Batter Badge designs act like a diaphragm on the drumhead, allowing Badges to flex with the drumhead they are mounted on, preserving the 'sweet spot' where most strikes occur during play. Drummers can perform without worry of denting drumheads, and can place a Batter Badge exactly where the most strikes are made, really letting a drummer customize their drum sound.

The unique patented vented shapes of Batter Badges enhance a drumhead, allowing the drumhead to resonate while controlling unwanted overtones and ring.

...Heavy play and harder strikes do not affect the tough, dent resistant, exclusive proprietary films and gels Slug uses for their Batter Badge designs. Badges improve strike articulation and control drumhead distortion. Using a Batter Badge on a bass drumhead will noticeably increase the "punch" and focus the sound of the foot pedal beater.




Powerful sound projection is achieved when using a Batter Badge due to the diaphragm it creates on the drumhead.

...Unique drumhead-Badge combinations can now be created by drummers for an endless variety of new sonic and visual possibilities with their drums. Thinner, single ply drumheads can be used with Batter Badges by drummers that normally could only use limited selections of double-ply drumheads or pre-made dot-heads for durability.

Batter Badges create new sound options and provide tonal control. A Batter Badge will protect the drumhead's "sweet spot" where it is placed.

...Batter Badges are the original vented impact pad product designed and patented by Slug Founder, Eric Behrenfeld. Patented features include vents and "Power-Flex" arms allowing for controlling sound distortions and focusing striking implement attack. The clear frost-finish polycarbonate film used on the Batter Badges is the same material used for bullet proof glass. Batter Badges range in thinness from .007" to .020" depending on the model used for snare, toms or bass drums.


Batter Badges work well in the recording studio, preserving drum tone and preventing drumhead damage.

...Batter Badges perform best on all new condition uncoated or coated drumhead brands. The high strength adhesive backing of the Batter Badge will bond permanently when properly applied, making it part of the drumhead for it's entire playing life. (Note: Batter Badges are not recommended for use with natural calf skin drum heads.) Batter Badges improve strike articulation and increase attack due to the "glass-like" properties of the polycarbonate film they are made of. Batter Badges also can be mounted underneath the drumhead to control snare ring and be able to use brushes as well.
