On 17 Greendale Street, Tony Owens owned a brass music store. Next to him, there was another music shop owned by Jeff Ringlington. One day, two kids named Jerry and Spencer went into one music shop and then the other looking for an instrument. A couple of days later, an instrument went missing. The police were put on the case. The next day they found a clarinet in the deserted alley on Juleps Avenue. Both music store owners immediately told the police that it was their instrument. The chief of police told the officers to give it to Jeff Ringlington. What made the chief so sure it belonged to Jeff?

Jun 12, 2005

I liked it but the hint kinda gave it away. Good one, though!
Jun 12, 2005

Yeah, it was very easy. You should have made the fact that the other one was a brass instrument store a little more subtle. I don't know how, but still..O_o
Jun 13, 2005

Everything starts up easy, but then they will get harder to solve.

Nice teaser.

Keep on!

Jun 22, 2005

dnt hate me 4 this...buuutttt....i dnt lik music anymore....but its only because my instrument in gr. 7 was trombone so dnt blame me...
Jun 26, 2005

I did not look at hint, so i figured only one police report was filed. So the cops already knew the owner. Because it states an instrument was missing meaning one.
Jul 02, 2005

my friend thought becuz it was brass but she sounded confused i thought since it said"went in to one then the other looking for an instrument" that one sold CD's and the other was instruments!!
Aug 04, 2005

I really enjoyed the teaser. Good work!

It might have been harder if the instrument was an English horn and not a clarinet, since the name "horn" makes many non-musicians think of a brass instrument (The English Horn actually resembles a lower oboe)
Jul 04, 2006

for me, this was incredibly easy.
but then again
I'm in marching band..
Jul 07, 2006

Got it! Used to play instrument and they taught us about those things!
Jul 18, 2006

Ще го научим тоз инглиш, ама кога ще е ...
May 19, 2007

I thought that it might have something to do with the police being "on the case"
Jun 15, 2007

the hint gave it away..
Jun 16, 2007

That was a good teaser. Easy but good.
Sep 05, 2007

Easy and I don't even read the hints. I thought the story could have been a bit longer.
Thanks for a fun teaser!
Apr 12, 2008

Easy! One of the ones I could actually get! Great teaser!
Jun 30, 2008

Too, To, Two, 2 Easy for $ourDough's unique brain

Jan 04, 2009

Hmmm the Clarinet could also belong to Tony Owens. What if he owns a clarinet and lost it. But I guess that possibility doesn't count since it wasn't on the story
Aug 18, 2013

That was easy, but I still love music!!!!!!!
