Flux Pavilion Selling Guitar, Synths, Effects, and More in Official Reverb Shop

Today, we here at Reverb are very excited to announce the launch of the Official Flux Pavilion Reverb Shop. Known especially for tracks like "I Can’t Stop" from 2010’s Lines in Wax and 2011’s single "Bass Cannon," UK-born musician Joshua Steele has been actively performing in the EDM scene under his stage name, Flux Pavilion, since 2009.

Over the past decade, Steele has amassed an impressive collection of gear, and he’s realized that it’s time to thin the herd and make room for more. Some of the highlights of his shop include an all-original ARP Odyssey and Doepfer System BS2, which Steele said he has been playing for two years now and was his first foray into modular.

Other items—like the EDP Wasp that he was convinced was the synth Roots Manuva used on his "Witness the Fitness" remix (but learned later that it wasn’t)—are things that Steele loves and appreciates but feels like he’s personally done all he can do with. "I really, really love the Wasp—it’s great. But I’ve kind of gotten my use out of it now, having made some read really nice, wet bass and kind of wonky stuff. Like, ‘Well, I’ve got that now. I’ve done that.’"

The Flux Pavilion shop isn’t just about the synthesizers and modular gear, however. Steele is also parting with some microphones, a grey Stratocaster he’s used on tour, and a few effects pedals.

"Guitar, drums, and bass are principally what I grew up doing. I played drums in a band, sang in a 10-piece jazz/funk band," Steele told us. "I would persuade people to let me record them, and then I’d add stuff, like drums or keys. That’s how I got into electronic music—thinking, ‘There must be a way to make a drum kit happen without having a real drum kit.’ Not having gear is what basically got me into electronic music."
