    If you have one, how'd you get it? Was it more of an active approach of saying 'hey look at me, I deserve a deal' or was it more of you just doing your thing and someone from the company happened to notice?
     
  2. Get a good quality recording, make some nice photo's ( but no cheesy ones ), write a small autobiography, and send it to the company you'd love to have an endorsement deal with.

    There are a few ways that an endorsement can come about.one being if you have a freind that to you makes a bass that is just as good as the more established names and you sincerly like what your freind has made Im sure your freind would not have a problem working something out with you

    A bassist I met who played upright primarily, performed at some jazz fest, and shortly after he was contacted by some string manufacturers, and they gave him free strings to try....if he had wanted to he could have set up an endoresment, but he didn't like the strings very much(I forget what brand they were) so he accepted the gift and said no thank you.
