Innovators and Music Makers

Recording King began as a house brand in the 1930’s making acoustic guitars and banjos. Since then they have upheld the standards of the “golden age” of musical craftsmanship, working to create instruments that can be passed down through generations. Recording King strives to maintain their historic legacy with the same handcrafted, vintage designs that caught the eye of legendary guitarist John Fahey. They now offer a wide array of guitars, banjos, and wood/metal body resonators.

Recording King’s vintage style and quality craftsmanship is trusted by many notable musicians such as John Fahey, Christian Letts, Justin Townes Earle, Mark Spencer, Lizzy Long, Caitlin Canty, Will Kimbrough, Jonathan Devoto, Rob McCoury and Buster Scruggs

“Thank you The Arts Music Store for making my 50th b-day present experience a great one. Thank you for giving a care and for your amicable character and professionalism expressed to me and my wife. Can’t say enough about all o’ this. These guys are the best. Their product line-up is downright sexy and I think the fact that my wife also picked up a pink ukulele at the same time just made it even more fun than we could have hoped for. Thanks ‘The Arts Music Store’ — you rock!”

“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!”

“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!”
