Gary Burgett

Gary Burgett and his brother Kirk established PianoDisc out of their piano retail store in Sacramento, California in the late 1970s. Gary was a pianist and music teacher with a successful studio of his own, and Kirk was a skilled piano technician and rebuilder. The store, Burgett Pianos, sold a product called the Pianocorder, a cassette-driven player system that could be added to any piano, which eventually increased in sales over the years. The brothers brought together a team to create their own product once the Pianocorder was taken off the market. In 1988 they sold the first of many PianoDisc units, which brought new customers and attention to the digital age of the player piano.
