Reverb, an online marketplace, has partnered with Muse for an exciting sale featuring a selection of their beloved studio and stage equipment. This sale, starting on 2 August, will showcase nearly 100 items, including instruments, combo amps, effects pedals, and more.
One standout piece in the inventory is the Kawai MP8-2 Stage Piano, which Muse used during their War Child charity show at the renowned O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in 2013. During the performance, lead singer Matt Bellamy leapt onto the piano at the conclusion of their song “United States of Eurasia”.
Another exciting inclusion is the Kemper Profiler Power Rack, several of which were used by the band during their ‘Drones’ tour. Each rack contains presets utilized by Bellamy, bassist Chris Wolstenholme, or member Morgan Nicholls.
Additionally, there are four Ernie Ball Stereo 25K OHM pedals from Bellamy’s collection. These pedals have been a staple on the musician’s pedalboard since the Absolution to Black Holes and Revelations era.
The collection also features an Electro-Harmonix Russian Big Muff pedal, Wolstenholme’s trusty practice Marshall Bass State B150 combo amplifier, used consistently until The 2nd Law tour. Furthermore, there is a Marshall 4×12 guitar cabinet (Model 1960AHW), with a distinct yellow Muse logo painted on its back. Lastly, another Kawai MP8-2 Stage Piano, which Bellamy ingeniously fitted inside his grand piano during the Black Holes and Revelations tour, is part of the lineup as well.
Lloyds Bank has issued a warning to music fans about the increasing threat of ticket scams for live performances this summer. Due to the high demand for concert tickets following the pandemic, instances of people falling victim to scams when purchasing tickets have risen by 529% in the past year.
On average, victims have lost £110. The number of scams related to music festivals has more than doubled in the last 12 months compared to the previous year, with an increase of 128%. While there has been an increase in scams for comedy and theatre shows as well, the overall volume of cases in these categories is relatively smaller.
