Genesis, Phil Collins Guitarist Daryl Stuermer Announces Huge Reverb Gear Sale
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the gear will be set aside to benefit cancer care and research.
Reverb has teamed up with Genesis and Phil Collins guitarist Daryl Stuermer to sell a number of guitars, basses, amps and more that he used onstage and in the studio throughout his career.
The Official Daryl Stuermer of Genesis Reverb Shop is set to launch on September 9. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the gear will be set aside to benefit cancer care and research.
“These instruments were used on tours from Miami to Melbourne and are infused with so many memories of playing for people around the world," Stuermer said (opens in new tab). "It’s time I parted with some of them so they can live on and inspire the next generation of musicians ready to make the same magic.”
1997 Fender American Stratocaster
1986 Steinberger GL-2T/GR
1981 Roland G-808
The impressive lineup of guitars on offer includes a 1997 Fender American Stratocaster used during Phil Collins’ 1997 The Trip into the Light world tour. “I have a vivid memory of playing 'In the Air Tonight' on this guitar in Paris, using it to create that slow build before the drums kick in,” Stuermer said.
The collection also includes a Gibson ES-346 played by Stuermer on Phil Collins' 2004-2005 First Final Farewell Tour and on Stuermer's GO! and Rewired: The Electric Collection albums, and a 1986 Steinberger GL-2T/GR played on Genesis' Invisible Touch tour, and on Stuermer's first solo album, 1987’s Steppin' Out.
Finally, there's a 1981 Roland G-808 with a Roland GR-300 guitar synth. "Before I played this on the 1983-1984 Genesis Mama tour, I had it customized," Stuermer said. The guitar was also used to play the guitar solo on the 1984 Phil Collins and Philip Bailey hit, "Easy Lover."
Also available are dozens of stage- and studio-used effects pedals, including a Boss CE–1 Chorus Ensemble S2 Rivera Modified.
"This CE-1 is one of very few pedals that Paul Rivera of Fender and Rivera modified himself for a very brief period in LA," Stuermer said. "The modifications added even more capabilities to an already amazing effects pedal."
