Reverb.com, the leading online marketplace dedicated to buying and selling new and used musical instruments, has opened an office in Tokyo, Japan. The company—which last year doubled the size of its Chicago headquarters and expanded its Amsterdam office to accommodate continued growth in Europe—has increased buyers, sellers, orders, and sales outside the U.S. by 500 percent over the past two years.
“Japan is one of our fastest-growing international markets. There’s a huge appreciation for and interest in the rich history behind so many vintage and used instruments,” said Reverb Founder and CEO David Kalt. “We’re excited to help make it easier for buyers and sellers all over the world to connect with the thriving music community in Japan.”
Since launching Reverb in 2013, Kalt has grown the marketplace into a robust online community, with more than 10 million visitors to the site each month and more than $1 billion in total sales on the platform. The company has nearly 200 employees across the US, the UK, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Australia, and Japan. According to Kalt, the company is adding tools and services every day to make it easier for musicians, retailers, manufacturers, and more to buy and sell instruments all over the world.
Reverb.com is the online marketplace to buy and sell new, used, and vintage music gear. Since launching in 2013, Reverb has grown into the most popular music gear website in the world, with total sales on the platform surpassing $1 billion and more than 10 million musicians and music lovers around the world visiting the website each month. A portion of each sale on Reverb goes to Reverb Gives, which provides teachers, instructors, and leaders of music programs across the nation with the instruments they need. Reverb also recently launched Reverb LP, an online marketplace for buying and selling records and other physical music.
