The Music Man Journey


The Music Man journey began in 1971, with a small company called Tri-Sonix, Inc. After a few hits and misses, founders Forrest White and Tom Walker invited their old friend Leo Fender to come aboard. Leo Fender's involvement was limited to a silent partnership, thanks to a 10-year non-compete contract that was part of the sale of Fender Guitars to CBS. Fender wasn't happy with the Name Tri-Sonix, and eventually the company was re-named Music Man, at his urging.
