Hi guys,

For my final year university project I’m investigating musical gear theft.

If you have been unfortunate enough to have a pedal swiped, find a symbol set missing or chased someone down the road trying to get your keyboard back I want to know about it!

I’m interested to know:

-Who you reported the theft to? (Police, event organiser….etc.)
-What time it was stolen? (Before, after?)
-Who stole it? (Was it a fan, random spectator, backstage staff?)
-Where your item went missing? (Out the back of your van? Backstage etc.)
-What actually went missing? (Pedals, guitar? Your whole set up? Drum sticks?)

Any information would be very gratefully received.

Thanks guys,

Scott.

You couldn't have picked an interesting topic?


I have no real contribution.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

Meh, I once lost a harmonica in the last day of school past year, but didn't report it to anyone, I wasn't even good with the harmonica after all. Dunno if that counts.
