If you’ve always wanted to own some piece of Linkin Park studio gear, you finally have a chance to obtain it! The group has announced a special auction that’s going to take place tomorrow, Wed, April 4, through Reverb. The musicians are selling off more than 200 pieces of their studio and concert gear.
These are the technical and stage items that Linkin Park members actually used, and it’s everything you dreamed of. From a Yamaha keytar to Pioneer DJ remix stations, to road cases, to vocoder pedals and amplifiers. There are also smaller pieces that fans will appreciate, such as backstage LP banners, stickers, etc. The portion of the proceeds for the items sold in the auction will go to LP’s charity organization Music for Relief.
“Throughout the last 13 years, Linkin Park fans have been incredibly generous supporters of Music For Relief, truly enabling our mission to help survivors and communities in the wake of natural disasters,” says Whitney Showler, VP Operations and Programs at EIF. “Music for Relief is honored to be the beneficiary of this rare opportunity Linkin Park is offering to own a piece of their history.”
