Re: Drum key Pearl K050 with unusual yellow color logo

I have one of the same keys but the Pearl text is white... (the inset is both sides of the key) . Maybe someone has reglued an inset back in & the glue has reacted with the plastic.

Re: Ideas for rubber mounting gaskets?

Yes Felt works, I have used the felt furniture pads which have self adhesive backing... (I don't peel off the backing)..

Another good & plentiful material is the advertising refrigerator magnets...

Can't disagree with Oddball... 4 was my initial first choice.. but 2 second time around...
