One of the pieces, the ARP 2600 clone (with a sequencer) that was used on much of the Deadpool soundtrack will be sold wth proceeds going to Pediatric Cancer Foundation, a cause close to him and his family.
"I’ve always been a bit of a gearhead, as many of you know,” says Holkenborg in a statement. “Throughout my career I’ve amassed an amazing collection of instruments that I love and have cherished, but I simply can’t use them all anymore! I’ve made some amazing music with these items, they are instruments that deserve to be played, rather than used a couple of times a year. I want to get this gear in the hands of creators who can use it every day."
The sale will begin starting December 9. Get more information on the Reverb website.
