    Thanks Philip,

    That was one of the first websites I went to but it let me to this forum as it says they no longer accept new registrations unfortunately:

    How to register your saxophone
    Please note, we are currently unable to accept any new registrastions. If you have had a saxophone stolen, please register and mention this at the Cafe Saxophone Discussion Forum


    Best wishes,

    Seb

    That's good to hear!

    That's right, I was having a lot of trouble with spammers on that site so it is currently read only and you can list stolen saxophones here, as you have done.

    Best of luck, hope you get it back.

    Correct, it is on my todo list to repair that site, meanwhile people can post their stolen instruments here.

    Yes, that is my site.

    People can see the list, but just not add to it until I sort out the problems with spammers. It means buying some better software, such as what we use here.

    Are you asking me to remember further back than is reasonable to expect of somebody with my life experience?

    I have now imported the entire list from the StolenSaxophones.com site over to here. That site is still up as it is highly visible for a google search for Stolen saxophones, and it now links to the list here. No need to change or remove any existing links to that site as it is still valid as an info site and links directly to the list here.
    See:

    http://cafesaxophone.com/forums/list-stolen-saxophones.66/

    I will now move these posts to their own thread as it makes no sense them being in this one.

    Philip, are you able to say which saxophone it was, it would be great to mention this in the listing that it was found due to the site.
