Nice kit! What heads have you got on your bronze panther?

You need to contact companies and send them something like a press pack to get an endorsement. Theres usually info on their websites (well there is on Pasite atleast)

Man you're quick! And your drums are cool. Only thing I can suggest is possibly employing a different method of mounting that bell. Anyway, killer playing and great drums.

Dude, I KNOW! i hate bells being on top of a ride. It's just my equipment is crapping out cuz of touring and not having a hardware box. I use to have 2 hi hats and a lot more cymbals. stands died, and cymbals finally started going after a 2 years. I got endorsements and discounts it's just i don't got the cash to replace stuff right now. I'm hoping my companies can see some kind of potential in me and hook me up....at least with a little stuff.

I'll put up a video showing all my gear soon. Should be pretty funny how ghetto most my ish is

My bad. I didn't mean has it ever fallen off. I meant to ask whether or not you leave it on there all the time. You kind of answered the question in a prior post though.

if you want an easy cymbal indorsemnt, i'd try alchemy, instahnbul AGOP, turkish, meinl, or paiste. to get zildjian or sabian, you need to be on mtv, vh1, cmt, or fuse like three times. its rediculous. or try saluda, i've heard nothing but good things. oh and bosphorus.

What happened to having a deal with a company you truly believe in? I know at least one person who's turned down a deal because they preferred the products of another manufacturer with whom they had no commercial interest.

That's what happened broseph! I shot down paiste cuz I want sabian. They take care of clinicians/performing artists and thats truly what I want to be. Plus I love their sound!

Pick up two cymbal felts and put one on top and one underneath the zil bell. That will make the bell and the jazz ride last longer! You seem to break a lot of cymbals so do whatever you can to keep them together.
