Hello all once again! I come to bug you all for some help more advice actually so I am filing and endorsement application to a drum company who have amazing drums I got the privilege to play on one of them and I have to say I was blown away and so I am filling it out but I came across a question which you guys might guess says :
Why do you want to endorse us?
how do I respond to that I have a ton of things to say that i loved about their drums I have checked into them and done some research I like them but I don't want to sound like an excited child on christmas i want to sound professional and good you know any help or tips?

Companies accept endorsements (and give gear back as a result) based on marketing decisions.

They will support someone who helps them selling more of their drums to a specific target segment. Sell yourself as someone who can attract the attention of certain demographic that they would want to capture. For example, suppose that they are doing pretty well in the segment "teenagers with a taste of dead metal". If you are one of these, it is improbable that they would be interested. On the other hand, if they are not doing too well in the segment "old ladies with a knack of latin music", you fit this profile and they perceive that you can help them in that area, they could be interested in supporting you.

Word your request in a way that will make them feel that giving you gear will end with them selling more of their products.

It doesn't have the same marketing impact for them you saying "I went to a Battle of the Bands in my High School, a friend had one of your drums for us to play and I loved the sound" that "During my last session with Beyoncé, Electric Lady Studios, NY, they had one of your drums there, I loved its sound and it was a perfect fit for her music..."
