In the early hours of July 12th we were victims of a break-in at the shop. The gang of thieves forced their way into our Sax Suite and stole 40 saxophones that were on display (full list below). The police arrived on scene and are investigating the matter further. Sadly this is the most recent in a spate of Music Industry related break-ins with the thieves clearly targeting certain locations and stock types. It is unlikely these instruments will appear in the UK marketplace but we have listed a full inventory below of what has been stolen, please be aware or on guard for any 3rd party re-selling or auction sites offering these models. Any info can be passed to us or Thames Valley Police (Ref: 43170204724)

More credit card fraud.

Brittens Music has been subject to a fraudulent transaction involving a saxophone which was requested to be sent by mail order. When we processed the card transaction, the details (postcode, address) all matched. The delivery address was the same as the card address, so there was no real reason to suppose that this was a fraudulent transaction, and the saxophone was duly despatched on Tuesday 11th April. On Wednesday 12th April we took a call from Santander to say that the card holder was disputing the transaction.

We tried to intercept the delivery, but unfortunately it was too late. On checking with the courier company, the driver says the consignment was signed for OUTSIDE the property by a man but using the name that we’d sent the sax to. (Pippa Perrier).

Please be aware that there is someone, or a group of people who appear to be pulling stunts like this – apparently we are not the first victims.

The sax is a new, boxed YAS280, serial number WZ44940. It was sent to Pippa Perrier at an address in Southampton.
