The Black Eyed Peas, the pop supergroup that includes will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, and—until she left in 2017—Fergie, have toured around the world many times over on the strength of hits like "Where Is the Love?," "Let's Get It Started," and "Feel It."

The gear behind such world tours has landed on Reverb, via Los Angeles' Techno Empire shop. One of the world's premiere music stores, Techno Empire has previously listed artist gear from Robben Ford, Wendy & Lisa, and The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson.

Today's cache includes Roland AX-Synth keytars played by will.i.am and musical director Printz Board throughout "The End" tour, a Korg MS2000 that provided the majority of the bass sounds on every tour from 1998 through 2011, and a Moog Little Phatty also played by Printz and will.i.am during numerous performances.



For a time, The Black Eyed Peas had much of their music equipment housed in custom-made plexiglass enclosures. One of these, a see-through bass cabinet, is also available in the shop.

"This was before Fergie joined the band," longtime guitarist George Pajon Jr. says. "The whole band had all of their gear made in these plexiglass cases. It was one guy that did an amazing job of taking the gear out of its original cabinet and building new cabinets made out of plexiglass. This was used around 1999–2002."

In addition, Techno Empire is selling multiple sparkly Sennheiser vocal mics that each of the four main Black Eyed Peas used on stage.
