Tommy Peoples' Fiddle Stolen in London

A place for our musicians to post information about instruments lost, stolen, or otherwise missing.
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

The fiddle was stolen out of the car which was parked about 200 yds from The Corner House Hotel, 201 Camden Rd, London, NW1 9AA. It was taken in the early hours of Friday morning, 11th September.

It was in a black rectangular composite case. In the inside pocket of the case were two St Martin relics/medallions, a red glass heart, two D'Addario strings and a box set of Helicore strings.

The fiddle has a split or crack between the E and A tuning pegs. It also has an unusual brown composite chin rest, which you can see in the picture.

Also some CDs were taken as well.

Dr. Mierzwiak: Well, technically speaking, the procedure is brain damage.
