Hi to all just joined the forums....
I have had my collection of simple system Hawkes Crown AZ flutes stolen May 2nd 2009 so about now I expect them to resurface. Can any one notify me if they come up for sale please? Sadly I never took numbers, who expects to be robbed
Someone on the forum has a pic of the flutes & I'm trying to retrieve it (I had my PC stolen also at the time) so maybe I'll be able to add on later?
Ebonite, new small barrel made no logo on this section. Eb Piccolo
Wood ebonite small barrel, screws oversized on some pillers. Bb Flute
Ebonite, D# key heavily soldered & points visable on new tenon joint.F Flute
Wood ebonite small section (I think?) mouthpiece spotty parts possibly from whisky drinker previously LoL....
The Eb Bass was out of the cabinet and the Bb bass the robber/s coulnd't get out....so I had some luck on those two.
X 3 Rudall Carte wood Flutes went also & two libraries of music.
The Hawkes Band Books
for Drum & fife No.1- 41 all instruments ViZ: Piccolo, 1st Bb etc through to Drums, in seperate brown envelopes, Blue lables for number & White lable for flute etc...&The Boosey's New Drum & Fife Journal.
brown envelopes with yellow lables for the number.1-248 ....plus about a dozen unnumbered at the end.
I'm in Germany and as these flutes are of no real use here, I expect they might have been sent to the UK? Here's hoping someone might see something. eBay was notified but no real interest was forthcoming from them
Cheers Neil B.
