    Hoping the kind people who read this site can keep an eye open for my Stolen Saxophone

    A Cannonball Gerald Albright Signature series GT5 Tenor

    Also in the case were a Lawton 11*BBS and an SR Technology mouthpieces.

    Plus plenty of my business cards with my details on

    If you see it or hear about being offered for sale please contact me.

    Cheers

    Sorry chaps,
    It was stolen on 19.11.13 in Carhaix, central Britanny in France. where I live.
    I have done all the necessary reporting and have contacted lots of local music shops and instrument repair workshops.
    I have spoken to Cannonball in the US and notified Dawkes the supplier in the UK.
    I will be grateful to anyone who can put the word about.
    Thanks again.

    Sorry for you.
    Don't forget to check on websites such as leboncoin.fr where it might show up if whoever stole it doesn't know much about saxes. I'd especially look for the Lawton which is quite rare.
    Good luck.

    They do not come up on eBay, Gumtree very often so will keep an eye out for anything that pops up and copy you. Sorry to hear about the loss.

    I constantly check on eBay for available Cannonball saxophones and personally know the guys at Dawkes in the UK who are the UK disti as you already know. I shall ensure that they know and the tutors who use Dawkes.

    Might be worth pm'ing Di in France to keep an ear to the ground for you she lives out there and I'm not sure if she goes through all the threads all the time so she may miss this one .....John
