I'm not familiar with the site

can you folks get me clued in?

Good place to sell? Buy?

Is it craigslist and ebay morphed?


Thanks for any info- until I rejoined the Konversation I had never heard of this

I think many people like Reverb. When it came along 3 yrs ago or so I thought great no more Ebay with indian customer service jerks and an "were just here to hang you out to dry high-fee policy".

that said it ends up Reverb is being run by Chicago Music Exchange. The one time i listed a guitar they removed it for this or for that. They are a small operation that want to control everything that appears on their site. Kinda felt like i was hanging a guitar in their store in Chicago for consignment. i bought some stuff there successfully and like to browse the inventory periodically.

To me.
Reverb is more than a website to buy, sell, and trade music related products. It is a really great community of people with the common interest, and passion for music. I have learned a lot from this sight also. It is a great place to learn about music history, technology, gear, artists, music, and get the latest news about the music world.

I have had my own Reverb store since Dec 2015. They helped me start my own online business through their website. They give me hundreds of tools to manage it. I have sold over 44 pieces of music gear. I have purchased 29 pieces of music gear.
I have a 5 star rating.
I pay less fee's than other sites. I am protected by Reverb policies, that help me as a buyer and a seller.
The people I have met on this site are great people.
I really can't say enough good things about Reverb. I have had 73 interactions on the site, and they all have been amazing. I have stopped selling gear on other sites like CL/Eby. Not worth the time or energy for me.
I highly, highly Recommend Reverb.

Side note.
I had 1 problem. I bought a guitar just before a major hurricane hit the region I bought the guitar from.
The guitar was lost in the mail system for 1 month. I was patient with the seller due to the hurricane.
When the guitar arrived it arrived damaged with a broken head stock.
Reverb (Chicago Music Exchange) stepped in and refunded my money completely. Then they paid the shipping to send the guitar to them. Covered under their buyer/seller protection.
The customer service was exceptional. The best I have ever received from any website.

I have bought and sold many things on their site! Excellent tool for many things. They also have a filter to search sold prices for guitars...a great tool. The interface is also very aesthetically pleasing to sift through both on mobile and pc.

Reverb is great, but be careful, it feeds the addiction!

I've put numerous guitars up for sale on all the various kramer sites, only to get shit tons of pms from tire kickers. Throw it on Reverb for a hundred or two more, and it sells in a day or two. Never had a problem.

Interesting, I never knew Chicago Music Exchange ran it.

I recently had something on eBay. Kept dropping the price to try to sell.
threw it on reverb. Checked back five minutes later. It was sold!

I agree Reverb is a great place to buy and sell. Its not drama free, and like eBay, the user feedback section is helpful, although it took me a while to figure out how to use it properly.

I also have better luck getting things sold on Reverb as opposed to eBay.
