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

A post on Reed's official Facebook page says that the proceeds from the sale of the equipment will go towards developing the Lou Reed Archive.

It reads: "Over the past 30 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 of the frontman of The Velvet Underground's equipment, visit eBay.com/Lou-Reed-Archive. New items are set to be posted every day and all were used by Reed and his band.

Reed passed away on October 27, 2013. He was 71. Lana Del Rey recently revealed that she planned to work with Lou Reed on her second album 'Ultraviolence'. The singer has said that the new album song 'Brooklyn Baby' had been written with the late Velvet Underground frontman in mind and she had flown over to New York from her home in Los Angeles to meet him last year. "I took the red eye, touched down at 7am… and two minutes later he died," she told The Guardian last week
