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

"Re: (Drumshambo) Stolen Chris Wilkes lefthanded flute:
Anthony’s flute has now been recovered. Seemingly it was taken by the same buck who took the fiddle and concertina.thanks to all for getting word out . All is well that ends well but there is lesson to learned by all of us:
Stay vigilant, ensure instruments are uniquely identifiable and get word out quickly in event of loss.
