” As an entertainer, I’ve always wanted what’s best for the people that come to watch me play. To be the best that I can be, I need to use the best gear on stage with me. And the best backline comes from KLM.”

– Brett Kissel – JUNO, CCMA, and Canada’s Walk of Fame Award Winner

 
” I was instructed by the band to send you a note and express our EXTREME thanks for the gear provided! Rocket said the Ludwig kit and extra hardware were outstanding (and exactly what we needed look-wise)and the others were very pleased with the keyboards and amps – just what we were looking for! The gear was right, the price was right and thanks to you and Etienne for co-ordinating the pickup. Next time we’re back in the neighbourhood, you will be our first phone call.”

– Bill Allman, Tour Manager Revolver

 

” I played keys with the Revolver show in Banff last weekend. Kudos on the clean, well maintained backline gear!.”

– Craig Zurba

 

” Cam everything as usual was great, the guys took very good care of us, again I will always suggest KLM as backline for Dr Hook you guys always have what I need.”

– Freddie, Tour Manager Dr. Hook

 

“You Guy’s are GREAT. Not only did I get everything I asked for but more. I ended up using the Birch Custom Absolute snare drum you provided – and I didn’t even ask for it for all the shows. I don’t know who’s idea that was, but thanks man, that snare sounded fantastic….Do you want to sell it to me? The bass drum was absolutely killer and the fine selection of cymbals and stands made my setup a breeze. The quality of all the equipment was simply top notch.
Once again thank you for the great service!”

– Jeff Pettit /Drummer Charlie Major

 

“KLM Backline provides, undoubtedly, the BEST backline worldwide !!!!! When we show up to perform a show and we see the KLM logo, my entire team relaxes in knowing that we will be provided with the highest quality equipment available”

– George Canyon

 

“KLM Backline always has exactly what i’m looking for, exactly when i need it most. Our whole crew gets outfitted with the best equipment, and it never lets us down. It’s basically my favorite place to hang out in the city.”

– Brian Talbot, Drummer Slowcoaster, The Rankins

 

“I know if I call KLM I will always get exactly the backline I ask for and what my band needs. Great staff, GREAT gear, NEVER any issues with any gear. Always accommodating and I would never deal with anyone else.”

– Rick “Boink” Bazuin: Tour manager, audio, Finger Eleven, 54-40, Sophie Milman, Annihilator, George Canyon
