Artists on Ken Parker Archtops

This virtual cd presents all of Ken's archtops in action and shows just how versatile, responsive, and expressive these instruments areā€”for jazz solo and accompaniment, fingerstyle, freestyle improv, chickin' pickin' funk, flamenco, and more. They really can do it all!

Thanks to the wonderful musicians who took the new guitars on these test runs and to John Guth, who recorded Charlie, John Hart, David Acker, Perry Beekman, Joe Selly, Doug Wamble, Bjorn Solli and himself so beautifully.

Thanks also to Bob Martin who recorded the tracks by Kinloch and Steve, and to Kinloch who recorded himself as well.

Just click on the that artist's photos to go to their page and play their tunes. Some of the selections are long, so be patient while they load.

Hearing Ken's new guitars in the hands of these incredible players is truly a humbling experience. While these recordings give you an idea of the range of these new archtops, you really have to play them for yourself to appreciate their power, their tone and their feel.

There's really never been anything like them.
