Henry was on to us..........

As we all know, in the mid to late '70's there were probably as many sales outside the stores as inside...One day, my friend John calls me and says "Hey, I'm going to 48th st. to sell my Telecaster...wanna' take a ride?" so I said yeah sure.....(we usually were there 4 or 5 times a month in those days)

After parking and walking up the block for about 20 minutes or so window shopping , we see these two guys standing in front of We Buy....they're looking at a Telecaster , so , John says…

I clearly remember being 9 or 10 years old and my parents taking me and by 2 1/2 year old younger brother to manny's for a flat black lacquer Ludwig drum set.  a real beauty.  a snare, tom, hi-hat, ride cymbal and snare with a throne.  bought it from stu, who I believe was manny's son.  (my drum teacher ben halpern suggested we go to manny's).

and I recall that manny himself was there, working the crowd with his sales crew in that narrow store.

this was…

48th Street Veteran

I only worked at Manny's for a short while, about 8 months, but worked on the infamous 48th street in NYC for about 16 years before moving west to Los Angeles. I worked at Alex Music starting in 1986(?), then We Buy Guitars, Sam Ash, Manny's, back to Sam Ash, and last, but certainly not least, Rudys. I knew Henry, Judy, the gorgeous Holly, Ian and Judd for many, many years. They were all great people and great to work for. Manny's should've been declared a national landmark due to their…

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
