George Lynch’s autographed Behringer MX9000 mixing console

Behringer is proud to be associated with a charity organization that is devoted to helping musicians. Over the past 20 years, BluesAid, a non-profit organization, has raised money to aid blues artists whose ability to perform has been affected by terminal or chronic illness.

BluesAid has launched an online charity auction that began September 7 and runs until October 7, 2006, with all proceeds going toward BluesAid. One of the auction’s items is an autographed Behringer MX9000 mixing console owned and used by former Dokken guitarist George Lynch to record the limited-release CD Lynch Mob Live at the Key Club. The console will be accompanied by a letter of authenticity signed by Lynch, and includes an autographed copy of the CD.

In addition, Behringer is donating two new iAXE393 USB guitars to the auction that will be autographed by artists performing at the 2006 Arkansas Heritage & Blues Festival.

The BluesAid auction is the culmination of the 2006 Arkansas Heritage & Blues Festival (formerly known as King Biscuit Blues Festival) in Helena, Ark., which takes place October 5, 6 and 7. The auction will include items from artists such as Pat Benatar, Carly Simon, Josh Grobin, Toby Keith, Elvis Costello, Three Dog Night and Lou Reed. The auction will be held online through MissionFish, the charity wing of eBay.
