Help Replace Paradigm Equipment

Sometime between Monday, January 22nd and Tuesday, January 23rd, our Paradigm Equipment Trailer was stolen from East Lincoln Middle School located in Iron Station, NC.  The trailer stored most of our equipment that we use for our students. Paradigm Percussion operates as a non-profit educational ensemble and every dollar given from tuition and/or donations 100% go back towards our students. For 7 years, Paradigm has touched the lives of thousands of students, performers, staff, and audiences all across the world.  

We need your help to keep our ensemble running smoothly. While the police have been notified and local media outlets are starting to publicize this information, please consider helping Paradigm Percussion out with any size donation. Your donations will help us replace not only our trailer and equipment, but also ensure that our students will have equipment to perform on for the remainder of the 2018 season and beyond.

Our trailer specs are as follows:
24ft Black Cynergy V Neck Enclosed Trailer. VIN 55YBC2428FN005205. Dual Axle. The trailer had no stickers on it, so it was a basic black feature. It did have a small rust hole on the side of the trailer and the interior of the trailer was 2 level. Our awesome band dads built this in to the trailer for us and it is custom to our needs.

The items stolen inside the trailer are as follows:
1 x Adams 4.3 Octave Marimba on field frame (model MCKF43) borrowed from Marvin Ridge High School.

1 x Adams 4.3 Octave Marimba on field frame (model MCKF43) borrowed from Weddington High School.

1 x custom made Auxiliary Cart/Rack with clamps and cymbal arms attached. Also blue lowes paint buckets attached to the instrument custom for this years production of "Plastic".

2 x Adams 3.0 Octave Silver vibraphone on field frame (model VCSF30)

6 x Mapex 12" marching snare drums in black cases (model QCX1412S-TX-CC).  Color is Root Beer Burst Sparkle.

1 x 22” Humes and Berg black bass drum case.

As Paradigm's ensemble director for the past 7 years, I have had the privalege of dealing with some of the brightest, smartest, and hardest working students in the Carolinas.  Please help us keep our dream alive and help us to further educate our youth and entertain audiences across the United States for years to come!

Thank you and we hope to see you at a show!
