GEAR STOLEN IN NEW ORLEANS! PLEASE HELP!


Hello Friends,


As many of you know we were robbed of a large portion of our gear this weekend in New Orleans, and we are on a mission to retrieve it. We asking anyone with any information or any connections to local music stores, pawnshops, or mob bosses, to help us out. 

Our main concern is playing, even if its with borrowed equipment, as much as we planned to. We really are close to our equipment and do not have much money to cover the losses. The easiest and most fun way to help us, should you feel so inclined, would be to come out and see us this Saturday the 18th at One Eyed Jacks. We will be selling our CD,s T-shirts, and a special digital download of everything we've ever recorded, including a good deal of unreleased stuff.


In any case, here is what was stolen:


1. Vox Valvetronix VT 100W 2x12  Guitar Amp. This is one of the new models with the silver metal grill. The serial number ends in 604.


2. Ampeg SVT410HLF Bass Cabinet (500W 4x10) When stolen, this still had the custom red and orange grill cloth we used on our amps for a while. Hopefully someone is dumb enough to try to sell it with the cloth still on. Its also missing a caster.


3. Ampeg SVT3PRO Bass Amplifier Head (450W) 

4. Fender RT1000 Guitar and Bass Rackmount Tuner 

5. Alesis 3630 Compressor 

The previous three items were stolen in a basic Road Ready rack case. Once again hopefully someone is dumb enough to try to sell this all at once.


6. Epiphone 2003 Sheraton II. Its the sunburst one, and  I.took the pickguard off.


7. Boss Digital Delay DD-3 Pedal 

8. Electro Harmonix Holy Grail Reverb Pedal (the larger model, not the newer nano)

9. Ernie Ball VP JR. Volume Pedal 

10. Digitech HardWire Series CM-2 Tube Overdrive Pedal 

11. Dunlop  DC Brick Multi-Power Supply 

The five previous items were attached with industrial velcro to a custom built red  and white wooden pedalboard, So if you come across more than one of these pedals, and there's  remnants of white velcro on the bottoms, let us know.


12. Fender Stage 112 Combo Amp



Thanks again for reading. Feel free to forward this to any blogs, publications, music stores, pawn shop workers, etc that you might know. Feel free to post it to your facebook, myspace, twitter etc. If you know who is in possession of our equipment, feel free to fax us their name, address, phone number, and a list of their worst fears.



Love,

Silent Cinema
