    Good luck. Stealing a guy's saxes is a terrible crime.

    Hi Stewart I've just shared this on Facebook, I hope and pray that you get them back. This sort of crime really ....... this is a family forum, but I think you get the point. Best of luck.

    I put it on fb the other day, but mentioned it on your thread on the Doorbell.

    This reminds me - I'll go and re-post it...things pile up and get lost on fb...

    make sure you keep your eyes on all the free ads sites + cashconverters + ebay of course + local pawnbrokers + music stores... good luck. it's terrible. it's more than the monetary value (even if in your case, the monetary value is very high, too.)

    Sorry to hear about the theft of your saxes - will keep an eye out for them and have passed the details on to a few woodwind repair colleagues and shops.

    I feel for you. I had a 1962 Selmer MKVI pinched out of the bands van one day about 18 years ago in Glasgow. They had not locked the van when they went for lunch. They payed up though. I also had a brand new purple 62 over 20 years ago pinched from my house. Will post also on FB. These idol scum bags want there hands chopped off !!!! well if it was me I would do a lot worse to them !!!! better watch what I say or i'll get wrong. Keep us updated.

    Really sorry to hear about your saxes .. terrible.
    Worth listing them on http://www.musicalinstrumentsales.co.uk/stoleninstruments.html This is a free listing and you can add photos. Also within a few days the details are picked up by search engines .. so anybody who may search for the instruments on the net will pick up your details.
    Hope this is of help.

    Sometimes I see low price Selmers her in Sweden. When you can buy a sax for 10.000 - 15.000 s e k (c £ 1000.00 -1500.00) that use to go for 30.000-40.000, I think there can be something wrong. No serial number and they use "sax terms" that can't be translated.

    Hey everyone yesterday i got them all back.Only the Conn alto is damaged but repairable.
    Taker sold them to a pawnbroker in Edinburgh for 600 pounds. Luckily i had been in same shop with serial numbers ,descriptions and photos.
    Now they sleep under my bed. Thanks to all for looking out for me.

    Hey that is great! Wonderful news!

    It just shows that you did the right thing putting the word around systematically and widely as you did.

    It sounds as if the pawnbroker was a bit of a mug, though, to buy a parcel of saxes having already been tipped off that several were stolen in one theft. I guess he will lose his money... unless your insurance company rewards him.
