Less than a month after his former bandmate Tom DeLonge took to the platform to sell off his old equipment, Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus is linking up with Reverb to auction off a horde of gear from his home studio.

Catch up on all the latest Product News here.

Kicking off on Wednesday April 21, the Official Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 Reverb Shop will feature a bunch of equipment used by the iconic pop-punk bassist onstage and in the studio with both Blink-182 and his other project +44, with the auction including items such as keyboards, amps, drum machines and more.

Some of the gear locked in to hit the market includes items acquired by Hoppus last year to flesh out his home studio during quarantine, as well as other assorted pieces acquired over several years of gear hunting.

Notable pieces set for sale next week include a Marshall JTM45 guitar amplifier with a matching 4×12 cabinet, which was used across a number of Blink-182, +44 and Motion City Soundtrack records in the early ’00s, as well as a battered Orange head and matching 4×12 cabinet prominently used for the lead sound on +44’s When Your Heart Stops Beating.

Other items set to head to auction include a a Bogner Uberschall amp with a 4×12 cabinet, two SE Electronics SPACE Reflection Filters and a Native InstrumeMark Hoppus reunites with Reverb to sell off old music gearnts Traktor Kontrol S8-DJ controller, as well as a classic Korg MicroKorg and matching Elektron Digitakt and Digitone units.
