Billy Corgan Is Selling a Bunch of Gear Used on Classic Smashing Pumpkins Albums

Billy Corgan is partnering with music gear marketplace Reverb for the second time, to sell an array of equipment used when recording and touring classic Smashing Pumpkins albums.

Set to launch next Wednesday, 29th September, Corgan’s store will offer over 100 pieces when it opens, including guitars, synthesisers, amps, pedals and more.

According to Reverb, the selection includes a pair of Kurzweil K2500 synthesisers Corgan used when recording Adore and the Machina albums, as well as on tour in support of those records along with Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.

Other highlights include two gold Marshall JMP-1 preamps. “These vintage pieces are straight out of the ’90s and were used in the studio and on tour to support Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness,” Corgan commented. There are also three 1980s ADA MP-1 preamps up for sale, two of which were used when recording the Pumpkins’ debut album Gish.

10 guitars from Corgan’s collection will also be on sale, including a 1976 sunburst Fender Stratocaster, a custom Yamaha SA2200, a Harmony Rocket used when recording Oceania and a Taylor 855 12-string acoustic used in the studio and in live renditions of Machina songs.
