The lots on offer include a 1981 Ibanez RS-824 Roadster bass used during the band's early years alongside various promo items and other pieces of memorabilia

Brown commented: "I took a look at all of my old Pantera gear. I realized I had a ton of bass guitars, amps, cabinets, road cases and other great stuff just sitting in storage collecting dust.

"I felt they really should be in the hands of the fans who would love to own a piece of Pantera history.

"I have all my Pantera love and memories in my heart and soul. Of course, I am keeping a couple things that are important to me, but there is a lot of treasured items here and it's time for the next generation to care of them."

Pantera were a notoriously riotous heavy metal band from Texas whose punishing and uncompromising sound earned them legions of fans.

They disbanded after guitarist Dimebag Darrell was shot dead by a mentally ill fan while performing in Ohio in 2004.
