Former Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge is selling a large number of his used instruments and music equipment in an exclusive partnership with Reverb, the music e-commerce site announced earlier this week.
Similar to how Green Day utilized the popular used instrument website to sell their own used gear a few years back, DeLonge’s dedicated artist shop launching on March 24th will include a sizeable stockpile of gear (over 100 pieces of equipment) that was used to record Blink-182 and Angels & Airwaves albums and during concert performances over the years. Some of the notable guitar amps, effects pedals, keyboards, and synthesizers to be included in the online store are Marshall JMP-1 and Mesa Boogie TriAxis preamps, seven MXR EVH-117 Flanger pedals, five Fulltone Full-Drive 2 Mosfet overdrive pedals, two Roland Fantom X6 workstation keyboards, and a number of used road cases.
“Over the years I’ve collected so much music gear used on different albums and tours, that now I am overflowing with this stuff,” DeLonge said in a statement. “I need space for the next Angels & Airwaves run so that we can rehearse, do our stretching, hug and kiss each other, and all that other shit we have to do.”
The guitarist continued, “I want to pass this stuff on, and I’m thankful to be partnering with Reverb to do this. This gear has done so much for me and gave me a chance to bring my art to so many people … I really hope it can be used by somebody with the same aspirations I once held as a young musician. These are the kinds of tools that can take a musician from a bedroom, to a garage, and to the stage.”
