Don't know the kid or what model Eastman it is (you can see the engraving if you zoom in). Saw it on the TV's website
This UMD is the University of Minnesota Duluth

Duluth is not a particularly large place, nor is there much else around that part of the state. It's beautiful, just not highly populated. And a lousy place for a thief to try and convert a stolen tuba into cash. My guess is that if a thief wanted to pawn this, they'd drive the 2 hours to the Twin Cities and unload it down here. I hope the kid gets his tuba back, or at the least, that it was covered by insurance. :tuba:

yup.

Please don't leave stuff in your cars, friends.
20+ years ago, a Baltimore-area professional, Ed Goldstein, had his (original) Holton 6/4 CC stolen from his van, directly after leaving a ragtime ensemble performance at my High School. He got it back within a few days, the police recovered it from a pawn shop. Out of gratitude, he stopped by the police station to play a few tunes for them.

Anyway, this stuff doesn't just happen to kids... :|

You'll be happy to hear that he got his horn back. It does have some damage, but he got it back. I don't think they found who took it.
