A bunch of rare Linkin Park gear is being auctioned off with part of the portions set to go to the charity founded by the band.
Fans are being given the chance to become the proud owner of one of more than 200 items previously used by the band including instruments and studio gear.
Reverb will auction off the items on Wednesday with part of the proceeds going to Linkin Park’s charity Music For Relief which assists in rebuilding communities after natural disasters.
It includes a Yamaha keytar that was a favourite prop of the bands and was used for backstage singalongs. There is also a Moog once used by Mike Shinoda during live shows in 2010, a megaphone used by Brad Delson during shows in 2011 and keyboard workstations which were exclusive to the band and never released publicly.
You can preview some of the items here before they go to auction on the site tomorrow.
Check out a video of the band using the keytar up for auction this week below.
Mike Shinoda from the band said recently that he’s not sure what the future is for the band following the passing of Chester Bennington last year.
“There’s really just no answer,” he told Vulture.
“It’s funny because if I even say anything about the band’s future, that becomes the headline, which is stupid because the answer is there is no answer.”
Shinoda will release his only solo album in June following a deeply personal EP earlier this year.
