Reverb's 2016 Year In Review

Every December, we here at Reverb HQ take a few minutes to look back on the year. And this year — our fourth year of existence — has been absolutely astounding. In 2016, we've seen more listings than ever before, helped sell more gear than any other music marketplace in the world, and were even named "Company of the Year" by Music Inc. Magazine.

Most important of all, though, with the help of everyone in the Reverb community, we've worked together to make the world a more musical place.

Whether you use Reverb to sell goods from your shop, buy that last piece you need to complete your dream rig, or just stop in occasionally to read our latest article, you’re part of Reverb and part of the best community of music makers and music lovers anywhere in the world.

Take a look below for some numbers and highlights of what went down on Reverb in 2016. Happy new year to all; here's to even more music in 2017.
