Micheal O’Briain’s two keyed flutes have been stolen

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

Micheal O’Briain’s two keyed flutes have been stolen

Post by BelgianWaffle »

Two flutes of a Belgian player have been stolen. Just sharing this in case someone sees them offered for sale... Thx for sharing !

"Two 6-keyed wooden flutes were stolen from Micheal O’Briain’s home in Moorsel, Tervuren on the evening of 14 October 2019. They are a stained Boxwood flute made by Sam Murray (see photos showing also ivory head/end joints made from old billiard balls - the keys had been further strengthened by Geert Lejeune, who also had slightly shorted the bottom section of the flute) & a Cocus wood standard flute made by Geert Lejeune (http://www.geertlejeune.com/flutes - see photo). The loss of these unique and high quality hand-crafted instruments is devastating and Micheal would greatly appreciate, if any musician learns about someone attempting to sell them, to let him know as soon as possible. He can be contacted by email at mogobriain@gmail.com or by phone at 00 32 485059864."
