Orion Musical Instruments
Quality Made Affordable




A Solution to A Problem


Orion Musical Instruments began as a solution to a problem while Jeff was the Head Band Director at Godley, Texas: finding quality instruments at affordable prices. With Erik Lifchez, Jeff developed the Orion concept. At first, the brand was 'Musician Supply' named for Erik's store in Lexington, South Carolina. In 2014, the Orion name was selected for the instrument line at The NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA.

Development & Review Process


Various adjustments were made to the instruments and/or better manufacturers were found before they hit the Texas market in 2015. Our development process is lengthy and includes discussions with the manufacturers, prototype instruments, rigorous testing by band directors and professional players with feedback regarding the tone, quality, and craftsmanship of the instruments. Our development and review process can sometimes take years, but when the instrument is finally ready for production, we know we have a quality, well-built, affordable instrument.

Our Promise


Orion was born in North Texas, where some of the most discerning band directors teach. Orion has also been in the hands of band students, from beginner to advanced, both on the field and off. In December 2017, Orion made its national debut at The Midwest Band & Orchestra Clinic in Chicago. We stand behind our Orion instruments with one year's free maintenance that covers everything but abuse, neglect, loss, and theft. And yes, parts are available.
