Bought my first bass from Mameloks. It was a Satellite Jazz bass copy and it cost around £80 (cheapest bass they had in the shop). I got it home on the bus in a black plastic bin bag. This would have been in 1980 and I was 15. I saved like mad with money from my paper round and I loved that bass and the feeling that I had when I played it. Couldn’t afford an amp so played it without for a time so I could learn how to play. A bit later, my mother ordered me a 25 watt guitar (not bass) combo from the Marshall Ward catalogue which I paid off weekly. Horrible plastic thing that rattled like mad. The Satellite was actually quite a decent bass. I am now lucky enough to own some of the best gear money can buy but nothing beats the feeling of buying that first bass.

Hi Mr Zed. Yeah me and my friends used to tour the Manchester music shops in the early 90s trying out various pedals we could never really afford. Mameloks were quite nice to us actually. Last of the big spenders, I think I bought a guitar stand from them in the end.
