I´m pleased to announce I´m partnering with REVERB to sell more than 70 pieces of music gear used live and in the studio throughout my career.
In partnership with Reverb Gives, Reverb’s charitable giving initiative that provides youth music programs all over the world with the instruments they need to make music, I will be donating a portion of the proceeds from my Reverb shop to two charities: UpBeat Music and Arts, which helps students from all backgrounds in Chicago learn to play instruments and connect with music and arts, and Young Musicians Unite, which provides free, consistent in-school music education to underserved communities in Miami.
The shop is featuring bass guitars, amps, pedals, and electric guitars used throughout my career, including a Spector White Casper 4-string bass that was created for me in 2010 and used on every recording I´ve played on since then—from all the Kill Devil Hill records and my debut solo album to my second solo album, due out this fall.
The Official Rex Brown of Pantera Reverb Shop is also featuring:
- A Spector RXT Prototype #1 bass that Stuart Spector made for me in 2011. This guitar is the only one of its kind, since the model never went into production. “As with all Spectors, this one is as cool as it gets! I hate getting rid of it, but I just don’t play it anymore. I’m glad it’ll go to someone who plays it and that a portion of the proceeds will go to charity.
- A Fender 5-String Jazz Bass that I used on Rebel Meets Rebel, the country metal album created by David Allen Coe, along with myself, Dimebag Darrell, and Vinnie Paul. This bass has a lot of history. I used Fenders in the studio the last half of the 1990s, so this one has been knocking around for a while!
- A Spector Designs 4-String bass that I used extensively during my time as a member of Down and as a backup for several Kill Devil Hill shows. It’s kind of scuffed up, but this puppy’s got some bite to it.
- Multiple Prestige electric guitars used on my first solo album, Smoke on This… I’ve had an incredible relationship with Prestige out of Canada since around 2015. When you listen to these guitars, they sound and play almost identical to a Gibson—I shat you not!
- A Scala Custom Guitars “Broken” Reverse Telecaster-style guitar that has some of the best detail in the biz.” What can I say but Leo Fucking Scala—one of my favorite builders. This dude makes some of the coolest axes on the planet, but I’ve got too many.
