How to recover a stolen musical instrument…increase your chances of getting it back!

1) Notify local law enforcement. Have your theft on file with them should they recover your instrument. Supply them with photos, make, model, color, serial numbers and your contact information.

2) Contact local pawn shops and instrument resale shops. This is probably your best bet in recovering your instrument. Create a flyer with information: make, color, serial numbers and pictures of the instrument.

3) Search used online retailers (eBay and Craigslist). If you find your instrument, first notify the police, then the retailer. Do not try to recover your instrument on your own.

4) Notify family and friends, use your online social networks.

5) Contact your local newspaper and community bulletin boards. Supply them with photos, make, model, color, serial numbers and your contact information.

6) Use online forums and classifieds. Ask users to keep an eye out for you.
