Billy Corgan Is Selling a Bunch of His Old Gear
Published Jul 13, 2017Smashing Pumpkins diehards itching to get their hands on some secondhand memorabilia are in luck. Frontman Billy Corgan is selling off a bunch of the gear that he used to record some of his most iconic records.
The singer has partnered with Reverb to set up a new online auction, and more than 150 items from his personal collection will go up for sale on August 16.
Amongst the items up for sale are the Stratocaster guitar that he played on "Today" and "Cherub Rock," and the 1970s Orange OR-20 amp used on the Siamese Dream tours.
Those looking for something a little more obscure might want to bid on the electric sitar heard on Teargarden by Kaleidyscope cut "A Stitch in Time," or the autoharp heard on "We Only Come at Night." There's even an HR-16 drum machine that was used on demos before Jimmy Chamberlin joined the band.
Head over here to get full details on all of the items that will be going on sale, and browse through photos of what's up for grabs.
Smashing Pumpkins have been hinting that there might be some sort of reunion plan in the works, but until those come to fruition, relive the band's glory days by recreating the classic tunes yourself, using Corgan's old gear.
