Hot off the presses of the White Stripes official newsletter:|
"Jack White and Third Man Records are continuing in their efforts to help the thousands of people in the Nashville area who have lost so much in the recent floods by auctioning a genuine, one-of-a-kind red and white Ludwig Musser marimba which was custom-made for The White Stripes and used live on their 2005-06 worldwide tour for Get Behind Me Satan. All of the proceeds from this auction will be going to benefit The Red Cross - Nashville Chapter.
The marimba made its live debut on May 11th 2005 at the Fundidora Amphitheater de Coca Cola in Monterrey, Mexico and was subsequently used in concert in Panama, Colombia, Brazil, Latvia, Poland, Russia, New Zealand, Japan and every other country the White Stripes played in 2005-2006. The marimba itself was unceremoniously flipped over by Jack White at the last show of the tour in Osaka, Japan on March 9th, 2006, and has since been safely stored in Nashville in its custom red white and black flight case, which is also included in the auction.
Bids are currently being accepted, now through May 24th HERE."
