Stolen accordion

Stolen accordion

Stolen in Montreal yesterday (18 March 2013), blue Irishdancemaster accordion in C#/D belonging to a friend.

In black hard case (flight-case style with aluminium trim). Has Velcro strips for a bar microphone fitted on the treble grille.

Please contact me by email if you have any info. Thanks in advance!

Re: Stolen accordion

Will keep my eyes open at the sessions in town but my guess is that whoever stole it isn’t a musician and if they are they wouldn’t be stupid enough to show up with a stolen instrument. Pay a visit to Jack’s music shop next to Steve’s music and let him know about it and leave your number. Also watch craigslist, ebay and kijiji.

And if and when the thief fences it, they will only get a tiny fraction of its value.
They cause so much pain for so little gain.

Re: Stolen accordion

Thank you for the tip, malik. And Al, you are so right. In fact it’s not a very valuable or particularly sought-after instrument, but it’s one that has been played a great deal by, and is very dear to, its owner.

Re: Stolen accordion

Steve, I’m really sorry to hear about the theft. I sold my C#/D Dancemaster last week. Like you say, not in high demand, but charming enough for those that know them well. Bill
