On Sunday, February 19, local musician Dup Crosson lost thousands of dollars in musical equipment when his practice space in downtown Asheville was broken into.
The thieves took a Rode NT1-A Condenser mic, an Acer computer monitor, and the following pedals:
• Electro Harmonix Big Muff
• Electro Harmonix Pulsar Tremolo
• Danelectro Overdrive
• Danelectro Fish and Chips EQ
• Boss RC-20 Looper
• RAT distortion
• Ibanex TS-9 Tubescreamer
• T.C. Electronics Nova Delay
• Ernie Ball Volume Pedal, VP Junior
• Analog Man Bi-Compressor
• Akai Head Rush looper/delay
• Peterson Strobo stomp tuner
Crosson is especially upset over the loss of his guitar, a 2008 Fender American Deluxe. The guitar is solid white, including the pickguard, with a black lightning bolt epoxied to the surface. You can see a photo of the guitar in the photo above. In addition to the cherished guitar, Crosson’s Univox Hi-Flier four-string electric bass was stolen. The bass is an early-70’s model with a sunburst finish.
Dup Crosson, of local bands To My Dear Friends and Saint Solitude, asks anyone with information about his stolen gear to call 828-225-4190 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
