    Yea mate it's getting very nasty all over.
    Here is one load local to you to look for.

    As many of my friends know, I have experienced this feeling nine times since starting Springvale Studios in 1986.
    Let's find this gear and get the slime that nicked it banged up.

    Between myself and Ben Sims we have lost around 10-15 grands worth of studio gear and computers. Fuming as you can imagine.
    heres the full list of kit incase anyone gets offered or knows anything.
    Long shot as always in these situations but please share :
    1x Gibson SG Guitar (1963, White )
    1x Korg Electribe ESX1
    1x Korg Electribe ES1
    2x Macbook Pro Laptop (1 silver, 1 Black)
    1x Squire Bass Guitar
    1x Takamine Acoustic Guitar
    1x Roland Jx8p Synth
    1x Korg Kaos Pad 3
    1x Native Instruments Maschine (Boxed)
    1x UAD2 FX Card (Boxed)
    2 x SE Electronics z3000a
    2x Pioneer CDJ2000 Nexus players
    1x Zoom H4N Recorder
    1x Korg X3 Synth

    ****ers got in through the roof. Literally smashed their way in.
    Attached is a pik of some of the gear

    Cheers for your help!

    I was thinking of offering free recording studio time to my customers on the production of body parts known to formerly belong to people that seem to think its OK to steal from musicians.
    What about a sliding scale based on: at the lower end of the scale a plectrum, a cable or a cymbal felt.
    One finger for a free hour, moving up to a whole album for the production of a whole set of genitalia, if the former owner stole anything of higher value like the contents of someone else's studio.
    Might be quite an attractive idea, for some of my more extreme metal customer base.:bassist:
    Danni from Cradle Of Filth is well on the way to a good collection of spare parts already:

    How does someone even use a custom amp like that without being noticed?

    I have no idea mate, unless it's been sprayed black and all the badges and serial No's removed.

    Thieves are pretty much right behind pedophiles on my scale of douchebaggery! I hope these jackwagons get caught, prosecuted, end up in some painful position in prison, and all of us that have been robbed get our stuff back.

    I really hate thieves...

    Stolen or sold to a collector that doesn't care or want to know about the history.
    Can also be sold out of country.

    I was at a guitar show in Dallas in the 80's and passed on an instrument that was brought in by a local with a very low price and a sketchy back story.

    Very bad Karma is tied to all stolen instruments IMO.

    I'm all for the chopping off the hand of the theif style penalties for stolen gear.

    Best of luck.

    Don't know that any of it will end up here, but I got your list(s).....and a really big knife....really it'd be considered a small to medium size sword. ;)

    Bump. I've already seen Ben sims post going round Facebook about the hackney thieving. Everyone's keeping an eye it seems. Another mate had their sound desk and a load of mics nicked from a van about to go on a tour last weekend too! Will add specs web I can.
