Moby, one of the veterans in the electronic music industry and considered one of the biggest names in the genres of downtempo, ambient and electronic music, is selling a large amount of his music equipment to support the physicians committee for responsible medicine. The physicians committee for responsible medicine is an organization dedicated to dramatically changing the way how doctors treat chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and cancer.
The famous American musician has set up his virtual store on the Reverb music market platform, which is a site to facilitate the purchase, sale and learning of musical equipment, with the goal of selling more than 100 instruments including: synthesizers, keyboards, guitars and other items used throughout his career, both in studio and tour. Among all the available instruments, the highlight go to the Roland Jupiter-6 synthesizer, which Moby considers to be the “crown jewel” of its synthesizer collection, which belonged to Joey Beltram. From the remaining equipment that will be in the Reverb store, the Roland Juno-106 synth, Yamaha SY22 synth, Serge synth, the Technics SL-1200MK2 turntable with a rare Moby slipmat, the Case CZ-1000 keyboard (one of its first keyboards), the Roland Space Echo analogue effects unit, and the 1980s Ibanez guitar (which for years was the primary guitar in his tours) also have some relevance.
According to Moby’s statements, all the equipment that will be on sale was used by himself, in all his songs, which include the huge singles “Go” and “Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?” and the great albums “Play” and “18“. All these items are on sale since today, so if you are a Moby fan and if you have an interest in some of the instruments that Moby used, look out for the Reverb store!!
