Missing Hirsbrunner Tuba

Postby drandomtubas » Fri Jun 16, 2017 11:11 am

My HB-2P has been stolen. It was in a beaten-up Soundwear gig bag, and has an old style GW Taku mouthpiece.

It was discovered missing Thursday morning... taken from my car the previous evening. I live in western New Hampshire.

If anyone sees anything like this for sale, please let me know. I love this tuba.

That's awful. I truly feel your pain. Here's to hoping that this comes to a happy ending.

IT HAS BEEN RECOVERED! It's in evidence lockup, in perfect condition! Gig bag's a little dirty, and I guess I won't be able to get it out anytime soon without a bit of a fight, but that's a heck of a lot better than what I had imagined!

Awesome! Did they catch the person or people who took it? SO glad they didn't trash it.

I once had a motorcycle stolen by gang members. About 2 weeks later, they were hanging around in one of their front yards when a rival gang did a drive by and killed several including the actual bike thief. The motorcycle had to stay as evidence for a while, but the good news was they covered the towing and storage fees which would have been pretty expensive.

Anyway, I am very glad to hear that your horn has been found in good shape !!!
