Temple Terrace, FL (April 21, 2011)—Morrisound Recording, based outside Tampa, FL, was burglarized last week; thieves stole extensive amounts of recording equipment, instruments, computers, platinum-album awards and more.

After disabling the facility’s electricity, phone lines, security alarms and cameras, the robbers spent anywhere up to four hours inside the facility, cleaning out both control rooms as well as offices, mic lockers and more. “Besides most of our recording gear and guitars, the thieves stole our office server which handles our email, so we've had a bit of a problem getting communications back up and running,” said owner and co-founder Tom Morris.

Studio A is operational again, thanks to borrowed equipment and a handful of gear that wasn’t taken, but Studio B remains in disarray. Empty racks reveal cables and snakes that were cut when the robbers were too lazy to simply disconnect them. All the studio's microphones but one were taken as well. Police suspect a small truck or van was used to speed off with the loot.

Since its start in 1981, the studio has recorded a wide variety of acts, ranging from Marilyn Manson to the Bellamy Brothers. The awards stolen included platinum records for the soundtrack to the movie The Crow and Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Christmas Eve, and a gold record was for Iced Earth's Live in Athens.

Below is a partial list of stolen equipment. “We are still digging through 30 years worth of records to try to fill in as many serial numbers as possible, but we are obviously missing quite a few at this time,” said Morris.

Anyone with information about the burglary is being asked to call Temple Terrace Police at (813) 989-7110.
