“I recently bought an acoustic guitar from The Arts. Plenty of quality selection there. Arron and the other guys who work there are great to deal with. Put up with me coming in 2-3 times a week for a couple months to try everything on the wall until i found the perfect instrument for me in my price range. Great experience. Will be back when i’m ready to upgrade.”

Jeremy Pare

“Nothing short of great! Extremely knowledgeable staff that go out of their way to accommodate their clientele. Customers derive benefit of the staffs in depth knowledge based on their experience as working musicians. Their experience, integrity, and in-depth knowledge of the industry means that you will get decent products to suit your own personal music needs, at fair prices and excellent service after they have made the sale. If these guys don’t truly love what they do, then they are brilliant actors! Have dealt with them for over 25 years and will continue to do so!
All the best to Archy and the gang!”

WILLY JOHN

“My son and I have taken up guitar this year and we have visited a few of the popular music shops in the GTA in search of the right gear to get started with. The Arts staff have consistently provided us with exceptional service and a ton of great advice without the pushy sales approach of some of the other shops.
Great service and fantastic products!”
