    My brother is a pro trumpeter and had his C trumpet stolen from his car in West Didsbury, Manchester on friday night. It was a laquared C trumpet with a dent in the side of the bell, in a single Reunion Blues gig bag, and his passport was worryingly also in the case. He also had about 25 CDs stolen, mainly classical and jazz, inculding some Winton Marsaylis, and a large number of receipts kept for tax purposes. I have asked for the instrument to be added to the stolen instrument register but wanted to post details here as well just incase. My brothers name is Tim Barber, incase anyone comes across the passport. If anyone come across any of these items could they please contact me by PM, email (eclbarber@hotmail.com or work ebarber@redhill.dudley.gov.uk) or by phone 07930 143449.
    Many thanks
    Cassie

    It's terrible when stuff like this happens - having stuff nicked is bad enough, but when it is part of how you make you living it is a pain in the neck as well.

    Do you have any information about the trumpet - make/model etc?

    I'll happily keep an eye out on the various forums, in case it was someone who knows what it is worth and tries selling it in a more specialised environment.

    Thanks, Id appreciate that.
    Its a B&S Challanger C trumpet in laquar (with a destinctive dent in the bell apparantly)
    Luckily it wasnt one of his best trumpets, he'd taken all the rest out of the car, but that doesnt stop it being very unpleasant.
    Thanks
    Cassie
