Other finds in the shop include:

  • Two gold Marshall JMP-1 preamps. "These vintage pieces are straight out of the '90s and were used in the studio and on tour to support Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness," Corgan says.
  • Three 1980s ADA MP-1 preamps, two of which were used on The Smashing Pumpkins' debut album, Gish. "I would run it into a Marshall head. That was my main sound from '89 or '90 through '92," Corgan says.
  • A Drawmer 1960 stereo compressor that was the main compressor in Corgan's home studio. "I used it on all my home demos, from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness to the Machina albums," he says.
  • A Sequential Circuits Prophet-10 that was featured on Adore and the Machina albums, as well as the recent CYR album, according to Corgan.
  • 10 guitars, including a 1976 sunburst Fender Stratocaster, a Yamaha SA2200 custom-made for Corgan, a Harmony Rocket used on the Oceania album and tour, and a Taylor 855 12-string used in both studio and live renditions for songs from the Machina albums.
