    Man oh man do I hate thieves.

    Pics of the instruments themselves would sure help!

    That really sucks! In the Navy, thieves were the lowest of the lowlifes, especially on board a ship where your possessions were precious and few.

    I wish you good luck in finding your stuff! Keep publicizing it, thieves are usually stupid enough to hock stuff locally. Probably crackheads.

    A friend of mine, formerly in the Navy, told me that if anyone on a ship was caught stealing, the commander would say something along the lines of, "Bring him to me, and make sure he accidentally falls down a few times on the way here."

    The instrument pictures are in the link. Just slide the instrument case picture over to the left.

    Lowest form of life is a thief.
    Hope the gear gets found and returned

    Not really disagreeing.....but the LOWEST form of life is a child molester. Thieves are only slightly better.
    I hope the perp is exhibit A at the (lost)Testicle Festival.........

    Not questioning that. I was trying not to raise any red flags and keep in the moment of the thread

    No serial numbers. How do I know when I see them? The cases wouldn't be sold with the instruments, at least I wouldn't sell them together. In fact, the cases would go in the bin if I couldn't clean them up enough to pass them on.
