A selection of musical equipment that once belonged to the late Lou Reed is set to be auctioned online.

A post on the former Velvet Underground front man's official Facebook page says that the proceeds from the sale will go towards developing the Lou Reed Archive.

It reads: "Over the past thirty years Lou Reed amassed a large collection of equipment in support of his many tours. While all of his most important guitars, amps, and effects will be kept by Sister Ray Enterprises for his archive, there are many pieces of musical gear and road cases that need to be sold. Over the next few weeks these items will be auctioned through eBay. The proceeds will go towards the work that is underway to develop the Lou Reed Archive."

For more information about the auction, visit eBay.com/Lou-Reed-Archive. New items are set to be posted daily.

Lou Reed passed away on October 27, 2013 at the age of 71.
