Braindead Customer of the Decade
The DJ who plugged one of the speaker outputs of his 1200 Watt power amp into an input of his mixing desk, completely vaporizing the tracks on the main circuit board. The Coup de Grace?...blaming us (in a most aggressive fashion) for not telling him to avoid doing this!!! We have since largely dropped selling DJ equipment!
Melmusic started in 1989 as Melbourne P.A. & Stage Pty Ltd, specializing in used Pro Audio, Sound Reinforcement, Lighting and Staging after owner, Brad Coates, became too old and jaded to continue earning a living as a professional musician!! The advent of wholesale gambling (pokies)in the early 1990's in Victoria changed Live Venues into Pokie rooms and effectively killed this part of the business. The operating name was changed to Melbourne Music Centre (Melmusic)and the business moved into selling Vintage Musical Instruments, Collectables and Vintage spare parts. The advent of eBay in 2000 killed this part of the business and we backflipped once again (if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!) and went in to value for money, quality on a budget, NEW Musical Instruments and Equipment dealers.

Melbourne Music Centre is a small family-owned business based on honesty and integrity. Basically, we believe that it is just not that hard to run an honest, legitimate business and still be able to survive comfortably. We are not on a Mission To Take Over The World as are some of the Corporate entities operating within Australia today. In fact, we don't particularly even want to expand our business! We would rather have a base of good, loyal customers that are happy with how they are treated and the way the business is run, than make $quillions by using shonky, questionable business practices. If this makes us fiscally/business naive, then so be it!! :-)
