    Someone broke into our guitarist's house and stole both guitarists' amps, my bass rig, our PA board, a flaky minidisk recorder and other stuff!.It enough to break an old man's heart, if not his wallet. If you see any of the stuff, let us know. I'll post a list when we can get together and see what all's missing. But if someone offers you a Tascam TM-D1000 mixer, a Sunn Bass Coliseum 300 head, a Eden 2x10 wedge and a Avatar 2x10, beware!

    I just left there and it looks like they also got a PA power amp, a drum machine, 4 strats including a '63, and old Schecter, 1(ONE, just ONE) small PA speaker and a bunch of cords.

    Were they just after the music gear, or did they snag other stuffs as well?

    just the gear. that's what makes me not suspect the usual crew; had to be 'musicians'.

    Time to start hitting the pawn shops around town, and getting out to see bands. That really sucks.

    any chance you have receipts with serial numbers of your equipment? How else can you prove the stuff is yours if you find someone else with it?

    Everything but the Tascam and the Eden and the ptrevious owners are looking.
     
  10. I'll keep my eyes out for it down here, sorry to hear about that...

    Maybe they went south with it and it'll turn up around me.

    Thanks. I figure either 'Nap or Detroit. If, they don't just keep it.

    AWESOME. I'm glad you got that Eden back. That thing is cool! And definitely the Sunn. I hope the thieves get what's coming to them.

    Thanks! The police are checking places the thieves say where they sold some stuff. I've got my fingers crossed.

    Well, some of the stuff is being found and we're moving on, but for a minute, it stunned us. Almost broke our spirit.
