Klaus Heyne:
We had 3 mics stolen this weekend from White Recital Hall at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Details:

1 Neumann USM691, matte finish (black), serial # 1752
2 Schoeps CMC-6Ug, Nextel finish, serial #s 21629 and 21630
2 Schoeps MK2s Omni capsules

Please keep your eyes peeled in case these show up on the used market at some point. Also missing is a pair of Mackie SRM450s, but the fuckers can keep those.

The first 2 items are mic only, the thief left the power supply.

Klaus Heyne:
We lost two U87 mics to theft.

Serial numbers are 50475 and 50477.

Anyone seeing these for sale or in a facility, please contact ron_harris@westwoodone.com.

Much appreciated!

Klaus Heyne:
I am currently managing the microphone collection belonging to the late David Smith, former VP of Engineering at Sony Music Studios. In January of this 2006, David rented a Neumann M50 (Serial #278) to an opera singer in NY, who promptly disappeared with the mic. Our lawyer has been unable to lasso her and get the mic back. I assume that, like the other M50's in David's collection, the ID plate on this mic probably says M249bc. If you have any info on this mic, please contact: ronsweet@solidsol.com

Thanks very much,

Ron Sweet
