AKG microphones and headphones stolen in lorry hijack

AKG microphones and headphones have been stolen in Essex.
Great deals on musical instruments

AKG microphones, headphones and wireless systems worth around £100,000 have been stolen after a logistics lorry was hijacked by thieves.

The criminals made off with around 800 items of musical equipment, in a raid which occurred on Tuesday (February 23rd 2010).

It happened as the vehicle was transporting the AKG equipment from the port of Harwich.

Among the items that were contained in the lorry were Rhythm microphone packs, K-Series headphones and WMS40 FLEXX wireless systems.

Essex Police are now appealing to members of the public to come forward with information about the incident.

Earlier this month, AKG microphones and headphones, which are used by the likes of Jay-Z and Kanye West, were honoured at the Grammy Awards.

The brand picked up a Technical Grammy for the contribution it has made to the art and science of music recording.

Other artists who have used AKG equipment in the past include The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder and Frank Sinatra.
