You can now purchase the late Lou Reed's musical equipment on eBay, or bid on it at least. With around 3 days left on the auctions for the items, it's hard to tell how high some of these items will go for, but right now they're all under $1,000. They include everything from Kurzweil keyboards to effects pedals. From the announcement, which also notes that for New Yorkers, more items will be made available for pick-up only.


"Over the past thirty years Lou Reed amassed a large collection of equipment in support of his many tours. While all of his most important guitars, amps, and effects will be kept by Sister Ray Enterprises for his archive, there are many pieces of musical gear and road cases that need to be sold. Over the next few weeks these items will be auctioned through eBay. The proceeds will go towards the work that is underway to develop the Lou Reed Archive.

Please support this effort by checking our eBay page. New items will be posted every few days. A wide variety of items will be available. All of these items were kept at Sister Ray Enterprises and were used by Lou and his band on tour. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to own a piece of music history.

If you live in or around NYC, we'll be listing select items for local pickup before they go up on eBay. You can sign up to receive these listings."
