Hey all,

One of my colleagues (Dan Dunford) had his Edwards bass trombone stolen out of his car in NYC several days ago.  The individual component breakdown is as follows:

E-B454 valve $2,975
Bell no. 1220CF $900
E-BR500DRCF bass rose brass tuning slide: $325
E-B454-1N bass standard nickel slide: $1,100
E-TC102 bass travel case $450

If all of you in the NYC area could keep an eye out while your in pawn shops/etc it would be much appreciated!  He can be contacted on facebook (Dan).

Thank you!

(If this topic could be stickied, that would be great)

Hi Dan,

This always makes me upset to read!
I feel terrible because I know I would be a mess if this happened to me.
I will keep this in mind...
I live not too far from NYC - obviously I hope this horn is located!

Thats terrible -
Do you have a contact, Poster with Pic and Ads up on Facebook groups?  I'm happy to share.
Make a poster with Pics including the case ( IE like a stolen dog poster )

I had my Edwards stolen from our car in 1992. We believe that the thieves watched us load out after a gig and followed us. We stopped for a bite to eat after the gig and they broke the windows and stole everything.  Sound gear - Albums- and the bass players Upright bass.

Police found all the mutes in a garbage bin, that night.  The Upright Bass was found in an alley downtown.

My Edwards was found almost a year later in a pawn shop !! A friend happen to see it hanging upside down with the MOUTHPIECE GLUED IN ! He called and I met him with the police to claim it.

Was a bit of a nightmare getting it back from the police! who wanted to hold it for evidence. Thankfully
one of the band leaders I worked for was well connected - between him and the local union they were able to get it back to me w/in a few days.

The Albums ( a Box of Bob Stroup " Entre Amis" and "Bob Stroup Trio " ) and the sound gear were never located.

Hoping that you get some leads and get your horn home soon.

But Do spread the word and get a picture and poster to all the Unions on the east coast.  Also message all the orchestras and music schools, stores etc - It will likely show up somewhere for sale
OH and POST AS A STOLEN with PIC and CONTACT ( Open a new email address for that purpose) and get it up on EBAY, AMAZON , OVERSTOCK and CRAIGSLIST as STOLEN
