My Life at Manny's

I'm 65 now, but I first went to Manny's (my mom took me) to buy a Ludwig drum set at the age of around 10, around 1965.  This was the original Manny's and Manny himself helped me pick the black lacquer set.  Manny's wasn't the amazing palace of instruments it became; it was a modest narrow shop.When I switched to electric bass at the age of around 14, I returned to Manny's for a Gibson Les Paul bass and I forget which amp.My younger brother bought a red Hagstrom guitar there (our father took…See More

memories from (my uncle) Steve Chapin

Ah yes. . . Henry.  Always a hot experience for me at Manny's.It was there in the 70's (Harry with albums and Tom on tv with Make a Wish), that he referenced me as the "no-talent Chapin" one occasion while Tom and I were shopping there - it was actually very funny at the time, a Rodney Dangerfield moment.                                            But for the next two decades, every time I would drop $5K a pop for PA equipment, TEAC recorders, ADAT machines, Mackie boards, outboard gear,…See More
