Sax.co.uk falls victim to burglary

Sax.co.uk falls victim to burglary

This article was posted on 22 Feb 2017.

A haul of saxophones including one sopranino and 29 sopranos were stolen over the weekend of 18-19 February from Sax.co.uk’s retail store in Crowborough, Sussex. The instruments are worth a combined total of £72,000 and include a selection of high-end brands, suggesting a targeted attack.

Sax.co.uk, a long-time supporter of CASSGB, has appealed for help in tracing the stolen instruments. None of the cases, mouthpieces and accessories were taken, which could lead to the instruments being sold in mismatching cases. A full list of the stolen saxophones and their serial numbers is available from Sax.co.uk. If anyone has any information, they should contact director Liam Young on 01892 662533.
