I wrote this up over the past few days in regards to a lot of the gear thefts taking place recently. Even my own band has had thousands of dollars worth of gear stolen a few weeks ago. I just thought maybe it could help some of you guys too, a lot of my friends are saying some of it is stuff they wouldn't normally have thought of, and that shouldn't be the case.
How to Protect Your Gear From Theft
Good write up
I have all my gear insured, so they have serials numbers, and they supplied me with smartwater to identify it all in case it is stolen (dunno if you guys have smartwater, it's unique to each user and logged in a police database).
Most of my gear is photographed too.
