Total Live Sound’s Graham White (pictured) has reported the loss of speakers, amplifiers, a mixer and large quantities of outboard gear.

The equipment – which was used for small local band concerts and charity gigs – was stolen from White’s garage in Eastwood, Nottingham.

The full list of equipment taken is below. If anyone spots any of this gear, they should contact White on 0797 704 8097 or Mike Jones of Nottinghamshire Police (Mike.jones@nottinghamshire.pnn.police.uk) citing CrimeRef: DE/018734/11 and IncidentRef: 000257-09032011.

White tells PSNE: “All the gear was racked and cased to the highest standard, and every cable was professionally labelled and terminated with the Neutrik ends. Everything was labelled ‘Total Live Sound’ stickers.

“We all think that the burglary was professional. Whilst they took every bit of audio gear, they left mountain bikes, tools and motorbikes untouched, [leading] us to believe that they were knowledgeable about audio equipment.”
