UK drumming legend Allan Cox has had the following stolen from his Rickmansworth studio on 4 December 2015:
YAMAHA MAPLE CUSTOM ABSOLUTE in Grey Sparkle Fade
10×7.5″, 12×8″, 14×14″ Toms, 20×14″ Bass Drum, 14×5″ Snare Drum, 14×6″ ‘Anton Fig’ Black Signature Snare Drum, around 20 assorted Paiste cymbals (1st issue Traditionals) in a brown leather cymbal bag, 2 sets of hardware. All drums and hardware in Protection Racket bags and 2 pull along hardware bags.
Allan is a great friend to many in the drum community. The drums have sentimental value and are in rare sizes. The drums are also no longer manufactured so a like for like replacement will be exceptionally difficult. Please contact Stu Roberts on behalf of Al at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any information or see the drums advertised for sale. Images of the drums are shown below.
