                        ABOUT US

   The origin of Piano Liquidators was based on our company's
primary focus as the national "liquidator" for several major piano
manufacturers.  Our inventory consisted of pianos that the
manufacturer had supplied for movie and television props,
convention demo models, factory cosmetic blems and,
sometimes,
a piano that had been used by someone famous in concert.

   Unfortunately, over the last ten years, availability of these
instruments became more and more slim - finally to the point that
you could not maintain the same business model. So . . . when
the market changes, you change as well.

   Over the last ten years, also observed was an upward trend for
many people to move to smaller homes, go into retirement living
and/or just quit playing. This, accompanied by an overall
decrease in the number of new people learning to play, created
an opportunity to offer high-quality
used instruments.

   While we are still dealers for many new major brand pianos, a
large focus is now on locating great used pianos at great prices
for our customers

   Combined with our ability to locate the "deals," having no sales
tax in Oregon, incredibly low shipping rates nationally, and our
decision to move away from a high overhead downtown location,
our business model now more closely fits that of a
gallery vis-a-vis
a "liquidator."

   Over the last 34 years, there have been two other name
changes to this business.  Founded in 1983, the business
originally operated under the name
Keyboard Associates.  After
about five years, as the business offerings expanded to include
guitars, amps, PA, lighting and recording gear, the name changed
to
Musician's Depot (with Musician's Depot, Inc. also becoming
our corporate name).  While also operating a store under the
Musician's Depot name, we expanded into a new market area
opening an additional two locations under the name of
Piano
Liquidators
. When Musician's Depot relocated, downsized and
returned to a
keyboard only business model, the new location
also became the third
Piano Liquidators.  Note, however, that
the management and ownership of the company has remained in
the hands of the original founder, Don Thumel, through all the
changes.
