Windhand robbed of gear in Houston
Richmond doom/psych greats Windhand are on tour now with Russian Circles in continued support of their excellent 2018 album Eternal Return, and sadly, they were robbed of a significant amount of gear in Houston last night (11/6), including four guitars, a snare, headphones, several microphones, and more. They write:
Got robbed in Houston last night. Keep an eye out for this gear. We’re waiting to file a report but this is what we’ve tagged as missing so far. There will be more to come. Spread the news far and wide:
– ‘79 Rickenbacker 4001 (maybe walnut burst) with a busted pick guard and the D string tunes in the wrong direction. Beat to shit.
– ‘2011 White Gibson SG. White bridge pickup with personal info and identifying marks under the pick guard. Beat to shit. In a Gibson case with G1 painted on it.
– 2013 black Gibson SG (not pictured). Silver pickups with ‘1974’ painted under the pickups. In a Gibson case with G2 painted on it.
– ‘82 Rickenbacker 4001 bass with a Seymour Duncan bridge pickup. Almost everything is blacked out including a custom-made black truss rod cover so it doesn’t say “Rickenbacker.” This was in a custom @emperorcabinets flight case covered in stickers and, you guessed it, beat to shit.
– Ludwig black beauty snare (not pictured). 14×6.5” in a case with our logo spray painted on it.
