Sell Music Gear

4.9

Reverb: Buy & Sell Music Gear is a marketplace dedicated exclusively to music gear. It lists numerous types of brand-new, used, and vintage guitars, pedals and amplifiers, keyboards and synths, and tons of other instruments and electronics for making quality music.

The iOS app allows buying the gear with the option to message sellers, negotiate prices, and receive alerts when prices of the needed items drop. For sellers, listing gear is free of charge, and there are also options to prompt their stuff. Those only exploring the platform will find a bunch of curated content, be it how-tos, interviews with artists, gear demos, hand-picked collections, and more.

Reverb: Buy & Sell Music Gear has an almost five-star ranking on the App Store, so we wondered if there’s anything our QA team can find within a quick round of manual testing. Let’s view the results!
