September 3, 2020. Daryl Stuermer—the guitar great who has served as Phil Collins’ lead guitarist and toured with Genesis from the ’80s through recent reunions—is selling a great collection of gear from throughout his career on reverb.com.
The Official Daryl Stuermer of Genesis Reverb Shop will open Wednesday, September 9, offering more than 100 guitars, basses, studio equipment, and other pieces of gear used on Genesis and Phil Collins tours, as well as Stuermer’s many solo records. A portion of proceeds will benefit cancer care and research.
According to Stuermer: “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 says. “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.”
Among the guitars and basses that will be available in The Official Daryl Stuermer of Genesis Reverb Shop is a 1997 Fender American Strat 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,” said Stuermer.
Other items will include:
- A 1986 Steinberger GL-2T/GR played on the 1986-1987 Genesis Invisible Touch Tour, and on Stuermer’s first solo album Steppin’ Out, released in 1987.
- 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 says. The guitar was also used to play the guitar lead and solo on the Phil Collins and Philip Bailey 1984 hit, “Easy Lover.”
- A Gibson ES-346 played on the 2004-2005 Phil Collins First Final Farewell Tour and on Stuermer’s GO and Rewired: The Electric Collection albums.
- A Shergold Modulator played on Genesis’ 1980 Duke tour.
- A 1992 Yamaha TRB-4P bass played on the 1992 Genesis We Can’t Dance Tour and Daryl Stuermer albums, Another Side of Genesis and Waiting in the Wings.
- Dozens of effects pedals used on tour and in the studio, 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 says. “The modifications added even more capabilities to an already amazing effects pedal.”
A portion of proceeds will benefit the Aurora Health Care Foundation’s Grafton Cancer Care Fund.
