Only yesterday, a trombone friend of mine visited Votruba's music store in Vienna, around 3 pm. Main thoroughfare, lots of people on the road, parking directly in front of the shop.
During the few minutes he was in the shop, his car was broken into,
and his custom made Rath trombone (rose brass throughout, no lacquer)
was taken, as well as his laptop.
He does not mind the laptop... but the trombone is irreplaceable.
He is offering to buy the finder a mouthpiece of their own choice,
by any maker whatsoever.
