Hello dear Handpan family,

A Bellart Bells Protus, first gen, has been stolen on new years eve in Gent, Belgium, in the home of his owner, Diego Canoura. He's not on the forum so am speaking in his name.

The instrument was stolen without case, only the plastic cover.

So far the information I can give is a picture: please note the very specific mark next to the high notes.

The serial number is 161 or 165, the owner isn't sure about it.

I will give more information as soon as possible such as videos, caracteristics or others.

Diego was trying to sell that Bells a few weeks ago on Facebook swap and sale.

That is a shame that this happened. I wonder if that was all that was stolen.

Actually, no, also a guitar, and the stand for the guitar and the bells.

This was the subject I talked with today, to just insure me that all my pans are covered in fire, home invasion, or stole off bike or truck, or I drop it. So I was reassured I had enough coverage today sorry for anyone to loss there stuff.

Nope, I'm afraid no signs of it yet.
