Moby is selling a selection of vintage and rare drum machines from his personal collection for charity.

The sale, which starts next Thursday, October 11th, draws from Moby’s private collection. “I’ve always been a little obsessed with drum machines,” Moby writes on the sale. “In fact, I’ve always been a lot obsessed with drum machines. Over the years, I presumptuously believe that I have come up with the largest collection of analog drum machines in the world.”

The sale includes pieces like the Roland TR-909 he bought at New York’s Rogue Music in the ’90s, as well as extremely rare machines like two Chamberlin Rhythmates, which were manufactured in an edition of around 10 in 1949. He’ll also be selling an MXR Drum Computer, about a dozen Univox drum machines and the ’50s-era Wurlitzer Side Man, a standing drum machine with a built-in speaker.

I’ve always been a little obsessed with drum machines,” Moby announced in an official press release. “In fact, I’ve always been a lot obsessed with drum machines. Over the years, I presumptuously believe that I have come up with the largest collection of analog drum machines in the world. There are hundreds of them and I loved each and every one of them. I hope that if you buy them, you love them as much as I did. Please take care of my babies.

From 11th October, the equipment will be on sale via Moby’s Reverb Store.

Earlier this week, techno legend Nicole Moudaber released two killer remixes of Moby’s recent tracks ‘Mere Anarchy’ and ‘Like A Motherless Child’.
