Post hoc endorsement?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by T. Brookins, Jan 2, 2017.


  1. I had an idea. I'm playing the NHL Winter Classic in about an hour, and I was wondering if it would be wise to affix the company decal to the face of my instrument in hopes that I can convince artist relations to allow an artist deal after the offices reopen tomorrow.

    Dunlop Super Brights sound amazing to me.

  2. I'm not sure I would, but that's just me.

    I'll be watching the game/festivities - tear it up and enjoy the moment!

    Good luck!!

    I'm guessing they wait until you're well known (by name) enough before they'll be interested in talking endorsements - although I knew somebody that mentioned what they were using in an interview on a local TV station once. They got approached by the company they sang the praises of shortly afterwards. So you never know.

  4. Thank you! Two packs a year would be lovely. I think I'll just play and not make any violations and placements. Definitely don't want to be censored. I love this place.

    A one-off with a sticker on your bass won't get it done for a major company like Dunlop, but a track record of a handful of TV talk show appearances and semi-major tours in a band with an album out might get it done. Basically, they want to know that any comp you get will result in increased sales and/or increased prestige for their company.

    Many "Endorsements" entitle the "endorsed artist" to purchase product at a "discount."

    That "discount" is not always greater than what some "re-sellers" can sell the product to you directly for.

    However, being an "endorsed artist" will list you on their website (bragging rights).

    It doesn't hurt to ask for a deal...
