Producers can now add equipment used to produce a Grammy-nominated album to their collection.
In one week, Tycho will put nearly 100 items from his musical gear collection up for sale. Using the popular musical equipment marketplace Reverb, fans, collectors and fellow producers will be able to purchase rare synthesizers, mixers and more directly from the studio of the chillwave and ambient music mastermind.
“I’ve been collecting synthesizers and gear for about 25 years now,” Tycho said in a statement shared with EDM.com. “And I’ve found that throughout my career, I get inspired by new machines and new ways of working with machines, so I always try to keep things cycling in and out. And I think, at this point, it’s time to refresh.”
Included in the upcoming sale is an Oberheim FVS-1 used in Dive, Eventide H3000 and Neve 54 Series mixer used in the Grammy-nominated Epoch, Korg Trident, SSL G-Comp, Chandler Limited LTD-1 and much more.
“[This mixer], it’s a broadcast console that I believe was mainly for South African radio,” Tycho said of the Neve 54. “I always had my eye on them because they had one at The Hangar in Sacramento and later at Panoramic Studios, and honestly, I just loved the way it looked. Right before [I started recording] Epoch, I got it. Most of that album ran through this mixer.”
Tycho’s expansive collection of music gear will be available for purchase on September 20th, 2023. In the meantime, fans can preview the shop.
