I wanna know how to get sponsored. I play drums in a pretty known Regional Mexican Band called Voces del Rancho. I've recorded 6 albums with them and they have been on the charts. Where can I start looking? Any advice would be appreciated. thanks

Start with smaller, newer companies.

btw, I build for Medicine Man Custom Drums. Drop me an email at pj@medicinemandrumsaz.com.

We don't do free drums but I can make you a deal.

I think it all comes down to management. A good manager will get you endorsments. At least that's what people tell me.
