Kraft Music

Roger Kraft was a pioneer in the retailing of electronic musical instruments such as keyboards and synthesizers in the 1980s.  Many may recall the days of keyboard stores throughout the United States in the early days of MIDI, when innovative keyboards were the craze.  With a background in electronics and music, Roger not only sold these creative products, but often would modify instruments to fit his own needs as a musician.  The keyboard store was the launching pad for a fuller musical retail store called Kraft Music, which he is always proud to point out is currently run by his son Ben.
