Rex Brown Auction PREVIEW Page


Auction Dates: April 18th - 26th, 2015

Backstage Auctions is proud to present one of the most anticipated auction events of the year featuring  the private collection of Rex Brown.  As one of the driving forces behind 'Groove Metal', Rex Brown is globally known as the bassist for Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling band Pantera.  Having amassed a remarkable collection of gear and equipment during his nearly 20 years in Pantera, Rex believes there is a better purpose for all his stuff and now after fourteen years in storage, it's hitting the auction block. 

The collection features an impressive array of personal items from his Pantera years including stage worn shirts, picks, bass strings, posters, guitar straps, promo items, record awards, amps, cabinets, road cases and of course it wouldn't be complete without a breath taking selection of his bass guitars. Hands down this will be a once-in-a-lifetime auction. Die-hard Pantera fans and collectors will not want to miss this event! 
“I took a look at all of my old Pantera gear.  I realized I had a ton of bass guitars, amps, cabinets, road cases and other great stuff just sitting in storage collecting dust.  I felt they really should be in the hands of the fans who would love to own a piece of Pantera history. I have all my Pantera love and memories in my heart and soul.  Of course, I am keeping the things that are important to me, but there are a lot of treasured items here and it’s time for the next generation to care for them."
~ Rex Brown
Never before has there been any Pantera memorabilia offered in a single auction by one of the original members. This is going to be a hugely exciting event and we are honored to host this auction for Rex.

*AUCTION CLOSE PROCESS On Sunday, April 26th the auction close process will begin. Our system will "begin" the close process at 2:00 pm Eastern (NYC time).

What this means is that  EVERY AUCTION LOT will REMAIN OPEN (even after the official 2:00 PM EST close process begins) for periods of 10 minutes until such time that NO additional online, phone or fax bids are placed on ANY LOT IN THE AUCTION.

: Our auctions will typically continue past the close time for several hours. Take advantage of placing your maximum bids or changing your existing maximum bid on the items you are interested in and keep an eye on those items as the auction begins to close as it will NOT CLOSE IMMEDIATELY at 2:00 pm EST.  For more information and assistance on how our "Auction End" process works, please see our Auction Rules located in the "Resources" tab on our site. Alternatively, give us a call and one of our crew members will be happy to walk you through how the close process works.

*AFTER THE AUCTION CLOSES: All winning bidders will receive an immediate email confirmation of the items they won when the auction officially closes. Final invoices (including shipping costs) will be sent out within 72 hours or by close of business Thursday. For items that require special shipping services, a member of the Backstage Auctions crew will contact you directly to make special arrangements.

*UNSOLD AUCTION ITEMS: In the event that an item does not sell during the auction, our consignors may elect to place their items in the online store for direct purchase. The price of the auction lot will be adjusted to reflect an appropriate "buy it now" price and in most cases this means that the price will be higher than the opening bid price. There is no guarantee that any or all unsold item(s) will be made available after the auction ends.

As always, we aim to be as precise and complete as possible with our descriptions. That said, human error is always a possibility and we encourage you to ask questions and make inquiries on any piece that you are interested in prior to placing your bid. All auction descriptions ARE QUALIFIED STATEMENTS OF OPINION AND NOT REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES.
