July Market Insights

 

This month’s Market Insights feature is the 12 most in-demand Pro-Audio pieces on Reverb right now, plus a few Honorable Mentions you should have on your radar.

To obtain these figures, we once again turned to our Reverb Demand Index, an algorithm that predicts how likely an item is to sell based on factors like available supply, sell through, and customer demand.

Don’t forget to check out our Market Insights data on pedals and effects as well as electric guitars.

 
 
 

Pro Audio Demand Index

Image Map

Some key takeaways:

  • The innovative and flexible Arturia AudioFuse interface came out earlier this year to glowing reviews. Strong sales and high demand have followed since.
  • The Shure SM57 and SM58 continue their reign as the most frequently sold Pro-Audio products on Reverb. Currently, used prices on both mics are hovering around $70.
  • In a surprise move, the rackmount version of the Behringer X32 iOS mixer is in higher demand than the other models in the series. This reflects a growing group of engineers and venue owners who see a full control surface as redundant in the age of iPad control.
