The kit, which can be seen in the video for the band's 2003 hit 'The Hardest Button To Button' (scroll down to watch the video), is one of several lots going undwer the hammer at the Jim Shaw Rock'n'Roll Benefit on February 7 at the Cpop Gallery venue in Detroit.

Other lots up for grabs include original photographs of Iggy And The Stooges and The Misfits and original posters.
