How We Began

Musicians Serving Musicians for Over 30 Years

Musician's Friend was founded in 1983 by Rob and DeAnna Eastman. Newly married, the Eastmans financed the start-up with a $5,000 loan from Rob's parents and ran the business out of their suburban California garage. Eventually relocating headquarters from San Diego to a dairy barn in Southern Oregon, Rob and DeAnna, along with brother-in-law, Al Dinardi, grew the business into a prominent direct marketer of music gear.

Our first catalog was just a simple two-color flyer offering discounted guitar strings and a handful of other accessories. With a combination of hard work and intimate knowledge of the music business, things quickly changed. We were among the earliest catalog marketers of music gear and the first to focus on rock-band gear, so we experienced amazingly rapid growth.

Where We Are Today

We’ve come a long way from our dairy barn. Today we have multiple locations around the U.S. to provide quick delivery and excellent customer service. Our corporate headquarters is based in sunny Westlake Village, CA. Our two support centers reside in Salt Lake City, Utah and Indianapolis, Ind. Finally, our 700,000 ft distribution center is in Kansas City, MO.
