Some **hole broke into my storage unit in Torrance, CAand stole my 65 Bandmaster 2x12 combo, a generic 1x12 Princeton-sized speaker, and 2 QSC HPR122i speakers. I have the HPR serial numbers, and the Bandmaster I have the chassis number and tubes.
The Bandmaster is in a Newell 2x12 combo cab and has 2 Orange Warehouse Speakers (G12C/S) and a Dr. Z BrakeLite on the side of the cab. The 2 HPR122i's have the QSC covers. Amp is the one in the pic, but this was taken when it still had Weber Californias.
Stolen from a Public Storage in Torrance; may have been an inside job as when we got there last night, the PS-supplied padlock was on backwards. Meeting police there this morning to file a report and then with insurance.
Have contacted one local guitar shop and plan to do the same for others as well as local pawn shops. Have been looking on Craigslist and may post a WTB ad.
Thanks TBone. Met with Police who agreed given the lock was open (supplied by Public Storage) that it was probably inside.
Filed insurance yesterday.
Grateful I had all my serial numbers and pictures of my gear and paperwork.
The QSC HPRs I'm annoyed at being stolen, but the Bandmaster was one I bought off eBay for cheap and rebuilt into a great sounding amp. Just happy I didn't also have my Showman in storage at the same time...
It can sometimes be a very small world and one in which circles of players in the drama of life keep bumping into each other. My bet is that you will find your stuff and that the assholes involved get their comeupence.
I am lately feeling as if I am everywhere at once though no place in particular.
