Instrument ID chips from the "It's MINE" company. These chips come pre-programmed attached to a tamper proof sticker which is placed onto your instrument case. The chip is then added to the National mobile property database so in the event that your instrument is lost or stolen, it can be returned to you. Once registered the chip can be scanned using an NFC enabled phone which will provide the owners details for its safe return. For more details on the technology behind the chips visit http://www.itsminetechnology.com.
The chips are subject to a £5 fitting and setting up fee, which includes registration on to the it's mine sever. Instrument ID chips are also available for fitting directly onto your musical instrument, for more information on these contact firstname.lastname@example.org
