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

Hey, I know D'Arcy. Bad play to the thief. I'll keep an eye out although the chances of the 'zouk showing up here are slim.

Just corresponded with D'Arcy who says that the long-scale 'zouk, made by Joe Foley (unique enough in itself, and what with the signature distinctive doodad atop the tuning head), is dated Jan. 5 on the label inside, has a crack on the soundboard (he didn't say exactly where), and on the reverse side of the truss rod cover is written his name, D'Arcy Stearns.
