Very true! We've supplied stuff "under the radar". Actually, it's more simple than that. What a player chooses to buy with their own money is no business of the company whom they endorse. The deal is based around brand exposure, credits, etc, so as long as those elements aren't disturbed, there's no issue. I even know a guy who makes a good living out of supplying very special percussion instruments (mainly snares) to endorsed artists for studio work.
