Forum rules


This is the C&F-wide forum for posting notices of any instruments which have been lost or stolen, or have gone missing.

Titles should include at least the type of instrument (flute, fiddle, etc.), the place of disappearance, and the nature of the loss.

Example: Stolen: Generation D whistle in Timbuktu

Reports linked from other sources or internet sites should include the basic information in addition to just the link.

In order to limit cross-posting, and to keep reporting and information centralized in one place, a post linking to a notice here (but not a copy) may be posted in ONE other C&F forum, typically the forum of the instrument involved.

Of course, follow-up posts to announce found or recovered instruments are always welcome!

Thanks - Your ChiffCo Management

Patrick D'Arcy reports:

Please keep an eye open for Tim Foley's Martin Preshaw half set [of uilleann pipes] which was stolen from his car last night (Sunday, 7 September) in La Jolla, just north of San Diego.

Tim Foley has provided the following description:

It was a set of pipes made from Blackwood with brass fittings and boxwood mounts. The Chanter is blackwood with brass fittings and two keys (C natural and F Natural). The bag is black leather, I had removed the standard green velvet covering. There were no major distinctive markings other than a very small Preshaw mark on the chanter. The case was kind of beat up, but was a black hard shell flight case.

Along with the pipes was a brass Michael Burke tunable tin whistle in D and a silver nonunable Chieftan low whistle in D

Here is a link to the thread in the Uilleann Forum, with photos:
