Nice job H8R. It's good to see a musician coming up through the ranks. If you've made it this far, it shows you've got a lot of drive and determination. Probably the vast majority of aspiring rockstars never make enough commotion on the scene to get sponsorships and the like. And that makes me one jealous. I wanted to play drums back in high school but mama said "too loud, too expensive, and where exactly are you wanting to put those." So ever since I've been chugging away on guitars. Anyways, just wanted to say congrats and hope you get even more recognition.
I had a couple low-tier endorsements back in the 90's that pretty much meant I got a few bucks off of expensive touring supplies (sticks, heads, etc). Relapse records set those up, I barely had contact with the companies.
This is the first time I actually bothered to apply for any myself. The kit I built last year has all DW hardware, including the mounting brackets, etc. I liked the stuff so much I finally went for an endorsement. I'm really really picky about gear. (hence building my own kit)
Now if I can only track down one of their ti pedals...
I HAD COUPLE LOW-TIR ENDORSEMENTS BAK IN DA 90S DAT PRITEE MUTCH MEANT I GOT FEW BUCKZ OFF OV EXPENSIV TOURIN SUPPLIEZ (STICKZ, HEADZ, ETC). RELAPSE RECORDZ SET DOSE UP, I BARELY HAD CONTACT WIF TEH COMPANIEZ.
