Selling gear? We are interested!

Whether it’s used or vintage, mint condition or a little beat up – we would love a chance to make you an offer. The best way to accomplish this is for you to list your gear on Our buyers are constantly scouring Reverb for gear and it’s really your best option for a few reasons:

  1. Get your money faster. When you accept an offer on Reverb, you can get paid same day. Selling direct means shipping the item to us and then receiving a check in the mail after we receive the item, which could take days.
  2. A larger audience means more bids. We do our best to offer top-dollar for your gear, but on, there’s a good chance that other buyers out there are looking specifically for your item and are willing to outbid us.
  3. Not in Chicago? No problem! Get packing tips from Reverb's shipping best practices and ship your gear to us. If you're local, you can drop it off and avoid shipping altogether.

What is your gear worth? If you are looking to get a ballpark idea of what your instrument is worth, our vintage expert will be happy to look at pictures and have a discussion with you via email. Click here for our appraisals form, or check out the Reverb Price Guide for a detailed catalog of the world's most iconic instruments.
