The Strokes’ Albert Hammond Jr is selling off a host of amps used throughout his career with the iconic New York garage-rockers.
Eight amps are set go up for sale on Reverb, including several Fender Hot Rod DeVille combos.
“These amps have been played on early Strokes albums and all over the world - two of them as recently as last year, when we played Lollapalooza Argentina in front of 90,000 people,” said Hammond.
“They’re incredible, well-made amps, so I’m excited to get them into the hands of other musicians and to use the money to put music gear into the hands of students who need them.”
In coordination with Reverb Gives, proceeds will go to The Otis Redding Foundation, Girls Rock Santa Barbara and The Brooklyn United Music and Arts Program.
As a point of interest, Hammond recently switched to Fender Deluxe Reverb amps, which could explain why he’s willing to part with these DeVilles.
The Albert Hammond Jr Reverb Auction (opens in new tab) launches today and ends on 20 November.
