Artist Relations
Company Name
Vater Percussion Inc.

Chad Brandolini began working for Vater Percussion when he was just 17 years old. Back then he pitched in to help in all areas of the factory and production. Soon his skills for marketing developed and Chad played a vital role in Artist Relations for Vater. As new ways to promote and market their products became popular, such as social media, Chad jumped in with both feet creating special programs and videos featuring top-name drummers using their sticks and brushes. While he admits he did not arrange it, Chad is proud to point out that Will Ferrell used a Vater stick in the now famous “More Cowbell” sketch on Saturday Night Live.
