Tom DeLonge is selling loads of his used blink-182 and Angels & Airwaves gear this week
The online marketplace will feature a ton of gear that the pop-punk titan used with blink-182 and Angels & Airwaves – from road cases used on tour, to keyboards, amps, synthesisers and pedals heard both onstage and on record.
“Over the years I’ve collected so much music gear used on different albums and tours, that now I am overflowing with this stuff,” Tom explains. “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.
“I want to pass this stuff on, and I’m thankful to be partnering with Reverb to do this,” he continues. “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.”
Tom adds: “I’m excited for anybody that’s a fan of the music that I was fortunate enough to make and be part of to get their hands on this gear. So hopefully you guys will find something you like. If you do end up owning some of this gear, though, I need to warn you that there will be a few things that will happen: you will get more handsome and fans will flock to you. That’s part of the rock’n’roll lifestyle.” We’ll take your word for it, sir.
Check out the video below, and head over to this link to preview all the gear before the store goes live on March 24.
