Dave Grohl Is Auctioning Gear in Special “PLAY” Charity Auction on Reverb

On the heels of the release of PLAY, Dave Grohl’s unprecedented immersive musical project, we here at Reverb are excited to announce that we’ve partnered with the legendary musician for a very special gear auction.

Starting Tuesday, October 9, fans can bid on brand-new pieces of the gear that mirror the instruments Grohl used to make PLAY, donated by DW Drums, Fender, Gibson, Gretsch, Ludwig, Masters Of Maple, and Zildjian—and signed by the musician himself. Being that PLAY is Grohl’s mini-documentary celebrating the rewards and challenges of dedicating one’s life to mastering a musical instrument, it’s only fitting that the proceeds from this auction will be going to benefit organizations that help young generations of new musicians “just play.”

“Seeing my own kids start to play music and take lessons brings me back to the time when I was their age, chipping away at it and learning from my mistakes. Even now, as a 49-year-old man, I’m still trying to figure it out,” Grohl told us, sharing his inspiration for the auction.

“It’s not something that you ever truly master. You’re always chasing the next challenge, and you’re always trying to find a way to improve what you’ve learned. It’s a lifelong obsession, but at the end of the day—just like any kid—the reward is just to play.”

The auction will run from Tuesday, October 9, through Sunday evening, October 21, so be sure to mark your calendars. Sign up with your email address in the form above to be notified as soon as the auction begins.
