Linkin Park to auction instruments and gear for charity

Linkin Park have teamed up with Reverb and Los Angeles’ Techno Empire to auction around 200 of the their used gear and instruments.

The online sale will begin tomorrow (April 4) and features items from throughout the band’s career – including a sticker-covered road case, Pioneer DJ RMX100 Remix Stations, a Yamaha KX5 Keytar, assorted pedals and more.

Money raised will go towards Music For Relief (opens in new tab), the Entertainment Industry Foundation which Linkin Park set up in 2005 to provide aid to survivors and communities affected by natural disasters.

Vice-president of operations and programs at EIF, Whitney Showler, says: “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.”
