Moby is selling a variety of musical equipment and gear he’s used throughout his career to raise money for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. The sale launches Thursday, April 26th, on Reverb.com.
In a video, Moby offers a detailed rundown of the items in his shop, explaining their sentimental value and noting how he used them to create certain songs.
Among the lots is the Eighties-era Ibanez guitar Moby used as his his primary live guitar between 1984 and 1998, and on his 1999 album, Play. The musician is also offering up the “crown jewel” of his synth collection, a Roland Jupiter-6 that originally belonged to techno legend Joey Beltram. Moby used the Jupiter-6 on some of his earliest records, including “Go,” “U.H.F.” and “Thousand.”
The sale will also feature a few left-field items, like the Gibson EB-3 bass Moby used when he played in a reggae jazz fusion band in the mid-Eighties. He’s also selling a Hawaiian-style slide guitar similar to the one he gifted David Lynch, and the two sombreros he and the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne wore in the video for “The Perfect Life.”
The complete inventory is available to pursue on the sale’s website, which also features a video of Moby discussing the shop.
