Behind every musician.

Tonight’s performance will only happen once.  The band, the fans, the critics, the memories….  You need to make it happen, but you don’t need to do it alone. 

FourForty Backline provides superior equipment and support services to meet the demands of the most discerning artist.  With a focus on the details and professional delivery, we'll stand behind you as you deliver your craft and create memories.

Gear &
Accessories

With the largest inventory in Canada, FourForty Backline can meet or exceed any artist request.
If we don’t own it, we can likely find it.  When you get it, our high standards for maintenance and condition mean that it will look and sound great.

Backline Services

FourForty Backline is more than just great equipment.  We offer services ranging from minor repair through to comprehensive, personalized concierge-level attention.  Each delivered professionally and with great detail, from our facilities to anywhere you want to go.
