Shop Preview: Switchfoot to List Vintage Guitars, Electronic Drums, and More on Reverb

After packing a collection of outstanding artist shops into this past year, from Billie Joe Armstrong to J Mascis to Billy Corgan, we here at Reverb are excited to announce that we’re carrying the momentum into 2018. This month, we’ve partnered with Grammy-winning alternative rock band Switchfoot to launch the Official Switchfoot Reverb Shop this Wednesday, February 7.

The shop is going to be stocked with loads of excellent pieces from the members of the band, who all hope that their gear will go to new homes to be played and appreciated.

Some of the stringed highlights from the shop include a gold ‘05 Lakland bass that has been on tour with Tim Foreman since Switchfoot’s fifth studio record, Nothing Is Sound, the first Les Paul that Drew ever owned (a 1991 40th Anniversary model), and Jon’s 2005 Gibson Les Paul from the “We Are One Tonight” music video.

Drew is also parting with one of his (now-discontinued) JHS Bun Runner 2-in-1 fuzz stompboxes. The pedal, a collaboration between Drew and JHS, is the combination of a heavily modified Tonebender circuit and an Astro Mess fuzz circuit. This particular unit has been hand-painted by Drew’s daughter for some added character.

Drummer Chad Butler is also parting with the first snare he ever owned—a 1967 Ludwig Supraphonic—that was used on the band’s first album, Legend of Chin, as well as a Roland V-Drums electronic kit that the band took on tour, setting it up in their dressing rooms so that they could work on demos for Nothing Is Sound.

A portion of all of the sales from the Official Switchfoot Reverb Shop will be going to the Switchfoot Bro-Am Foundation—an organization that works to provide grants for nonprofit organizations that help homeless, at-risk, and disadvantaged youth in San Diego, with a special focus on programs related to music, art, and surfing.
