British Colonial Design Follows Furniture Trends

NAPLES, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QRS Music Technologies, Inc. (OTC:QRSM - News), a leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of pianos, piano-based audio and multimedia products, music and piano accessories, today announced the introduction of the Islander, a grand piano in the British Colonial style.

“Many of our customers purchase their grand pianos primarily to make a furniture statement,” said Tom Dolan, president and chief executive officer. “By coming out with pianos like the Islander that follow the major furniture trends, we are simply giving our customers the ability to coordinate their piano with their other furnishings. Furniture is dictated by lifestyle and American lifestyles have been becoming less formal and more relaxed for some time. The Islander is an acknowledgement of these trends.”

The Islander will be available in a walnut satin lacquer finish and come is a 6’1” length. Priced at under $20,000, the Islander offers a level of style not seen in this price range and will work beautifully with furniture such as Lexington Home Brand’s Tommy Bahama furniture line, pieces from Ethan Allen’s Collector’s Classics™ and other plantation-style furniture. The new Signature Series Collection features styles, scale designs and specifications determined exclusively by and for QRS. The Signature Series Collection will be unveiled at the NAMM show in January, 2008 in the QRS booth 321.
