Travis Barker’s drum kit from Blink-182’s “Adam’s Song” video going up for sale


Now’s your chance to own one of the most iconic pieces of Blink-182 gear.

Travis Barker is selling the drum kit he played in the video for “Adam’s Song.” It’ll be available via Barker’s new shop with the online gear marketplace Reverb.

“It’s almost too special to me,” Barker says of the kit. “It feels weird to drag it back out on tour or to even play it in the studio. It’s really a timepiece and I can’t wait to see who ends up with it.”

Along with the “Adam’s Song” drums, Barker is selling various other kits, basses and keyboards that he’s used with Box Car Racer, Machine Gun Kelly and his own solo work.

“I just moved into my new studio and I’ve got to part with a bunch of equipment to make space,” Barker says. “There’s a lot of cool instruments here, including drums kits, drum machines, keyboards, and more, that I would like to pass on to the next generation to make lots of great music with it.”

Barker’s Reverb shop opens next Wednesday, May 26, via Reverb.com.

Reverb has previously opened shops with Mark Hoppus and ex-Blink member Tom DeLonge.
