    I am the drummer from a three piece UK rock band called faith n fury and I am currently looking for an endorsement and I really like the sound and look of your Cymbals.

    We have just received a load of endorsements from companies such as BC Rich, Claton USA, Dovetail Strings, Wornstar Clothing and others.

    We are currently booking a tour around the UK/EUROPE and we would really like to promote your product on it.

    We are in talks with possessive management at the moment and have a nice list of interest from record labels. we have also been recieveing interest and exposure from various media.
    If you need more infomation into other things we’ve been up to i’d be happy to send you all the information you will need and answer any questions.

    If you would care to look us up we can be located at:

    Please let me know if there are any possible options for us.

    Hope to hear from you soon

    Many Thanks
