Just checked, don't see yours on the site. Maybe he'll come in this thread, or IM him directly, have him take a look, maybe he'll have an idea...or someone else.

That's an interesting badge for sure.

I know that when they first made the change over to Tama from Star, the very early Tama badges had "Perfect Percussion" on them. Maybe it's a very late or last issue Star badge before they became Tama?

I also found this thread, which might be helpful:

Very common on the latin american bongos. Ive had 3 sets of bongos with that badge. Ive got 1 set left im restoring. Looking at brochure pics from drumarchive approx 1972. There are a couple of people on here with these bongos apart from myself.

Makes sense now...My first instinct was percussive drums such as congas, bongos, etc.

Thanks for chiming in, Sean!!

Cheers
