  • Stolen Gear



    Someone stole my KD-80 and my DW 5000 pedal last night as we were loading out from a gig in Ventura. What really gets me is that unless the thief has a Roland module the KD-80 is useless, although I imagine that they stole them to sell, not to use.

    Anyway, if anyone in the Ventura area gets offered a used KD-80 with a Kevlar slam patch and/or a used DW 5000 from someone sketchy, please let me know. Both items are in near-perfect condition.

    You need to file a police report, check/flag the pawn shops in the area and check Craigslist RIGHT NOW. Also, see if the club has video tape of the area.
    Good luck and sorry.

      +1 to what Kenster said.

      Thieves. Scum of the earth.
      I’d rather be told the ugly truth than handed a pretty lie.

        This is another time to bring up instrument insurance. A company called Clarion has plans just for music equipment and you pay based on what you think it is worth. I have $40,000+ in gear and it is all covered no matter what against everything but nuclear diaster and siezure due to military action. (no kidding, those are written into the policy) It covers anything else; theft, damage and damage from any number of ways. On stage dmg and even if you back over your gear with the van. It is world wide coverage so you are covered on the road too!

        The best part is that they upgrade you if your equipment is no longer on the market and tha value does not depreciate. If you own a TD-10 and it gets ruined, it will be replaced with the current flagship model, the TD-20. I tell every musician I know to sign up for it.

        You only pay based on what you report your equipment to be worth. I only pay $300 a year to cover $40,000 worth of gear. You can also borrow you band mates stuff for a road trip. If you call them up a head of time, you can add upto $50,000 of other peoples gear for up to 30 days at a time at no extra cost!!!

        Totally worth it.

              Definitely watch Craigslist. A guitar player I know had his gear ripped off. Saw one of the guitars on Craigslist the next day. He called the cops, they had him set up a meeting to buy the guitar and got the guy. He got all the gear back.

                Hi Jim,

                In addition to the local pawn shops, also contact the music stores in the area - Ventura, Thousand Oaks, Oxnard, and even Santa Barbara. If the thief is desperate for money, they may try to hit up the local shops. I know several of the guys you work in those stores... if you need me to pass along the info let me know.

                  Thanks Drew,

                  It would be great if you could pass the information along to the various local music stores.

                  I was able to buy a ‘in-the-box’ KD-80 to replace the one that was stolen and I noticed that it now longer includes the black ‘lock-knobs’ that helped to keep the lugs in place. It looks like they may have been replaced with a ‘lock-bushing’ but I want to make sure so that I don’t damage the pad. Can you tell me if the old black locking knobs have been replaced with the lock-bushing?

                  Thanks for all of your (and everyone else’s) assistance!

                  Jim

                    BTW Drew, other than replacing some of the original weak plastic cymbal clamps, after over 10 years and well over 500 gigs with my V-Drums, this is the first time that I have had to ‘replace’ any of my gear made by Roland (upgrades due to GAS not included, of course).

                    You guys DO make great gear!

                      Sorry for the bump, but I just learned that none of my equipment, or my band's equipment is covered by my insurance and that there's no option for coverage. I was scanning the archives here to see if anyone else had discussed this in the past and ran across this one (only). Please let me know if anyone uses this company, or if there's others using something else?

                      I'm in the market for coverage!
