Reverb.com has announced the upcoming launch of the One Mic Reverb shop, which will be selling a collection of microphones signed and donated by some of the biggest names in music. Proceeds will be going towards 10 youth music education programs which have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Microphones to go on sale include a 50th Anniversary Paul McCartney Shure SM58 microphone donated by Paul McCartney – one of only 300 made. Alongside this, there’s a Telefunken M80 microphone signed by John Legend, an sE Electronics V7 microphone signed by Billie Eilish, a Shure SM7B microphone signed by The Weeknd, an Electro-Voice RE20 microphone signed by Mavis Staples, and a Sennheiser MD 441-U microphone signed by the members of HAIM – among many others.
Reverb said in a statement about the shop’s launch: “A portion of every sale on Reverb goes to Reverb Gives, which provides youth music programs around the world with the instruments they need to make music. The Official One Mic Reverb Shop was created to provide additional assistance to the next generation of musicians and with the belief that all it takes is one mic – one touchpoint with music – to change a student’s life forever.”
The store will launch on 1 December this year. You can find out more about the initiative over at reverb.com
