The Most Watched Gear on Reverb This Week

At any one moment, there are hundreds of thousands of items for sale on Reverb. Which ones resonate the most with the music makers who buy or browse the site?

One way to know is to look at what people are adding to their Watch Lists. This is Reverb's way of "favoriting" an item, which you can do for any listing by clicking the heart or "Watch" box. You'll then be able to see if it drops in price, if it sells, or if it gets relisted.

So what's everyone been eyeing this week? We're highlighting some of the most Watched items here.

1964 Fender Stratocaster

Leading the Most Watched list this week is a pre-CBS 1964 Fender Stratocaster with a sunburst finish. It's definitely in player-grade condition and features replaced modern CTS pots and higher-output '59 custom shop pickups. Watchers have likely flocked to this particular '64 Strat because of its price, which makes it the least expensive of its kind on Reverb right now. If you're in the market for a vintage Strat, this could be the one.

Oberheim TVS Pro

The Oberheim TVS Pro is a modern, updated recreation of the original Two-Voice produced in the late 1970s. This one for sale appears to be in nearly mint condition and has only been used for around four hours, according to the listing. Some of the modern features that make this a pro model are its digital sequencer, MIDI functionality, and flexible patch panel for interfacing with modular setups.

Neotek Elite 32-channel console

This modded, 32-channel Neotek Elite is in excellent condition and is currently working in a studio in Brooklyn while awaiting its new home. It features 30 mono and two stereo channels and "other than a few scratchy pots," the listing says, "everything works perfectly." Some of the mods include an installed API mix bus with vintage 2520 op amps and a post-fader transformer balanced direct out for each of the 30 channels. See the listing for full spec details.

Electro-Harmonix Black Russian Big Muff Pi

This Electro-Harmonix Black Russian Big Muff Pi has garnered lots of Watchers this week, probably partly due to its solid asking price. While the listing notes that the input screw is cracked, the pedal is said to be fully functional and operational. The seller has had this pedal since 2005/'06, and it comes with the original wooden box that's still in good shape.

1979 Dumble Kitty Hawk

Dumble amplifiers always garner lots of Watchers on Reverb, and this one is no different. While this is a Kitty Hawk-branded amp (which was a brand that belonged to Applied Acoustics, Dumble's authorized distributor in the European market), it was made in conjunction with Dumble himself in the late 1970s. According to the listing, this amp is one of only 20 Kitty Hawk-branded amps featuring circuit boards supplied by Dumble. Check out the listing for more build details.

Feelgood/Fender Jag-Stang

This is a particularly special Jag-Stang that's been redesigned by luthier Paul Rhoney. Rhoney's design "adds a belly and tummy contour along with reshaping the body to look a little more Fender-esque." The finish has been redone to emulate the "competition burgundy/purple burst" finish from Fender's 1969 Competition Mustangs. While it turned out a little lighter than intended, it still looks pretty sharp. This is a super cool, super unique instrument for Fender offset fans.

Sonor HLD590 Bell Bronze 14″x 8″ snare

Here we have the flagship snare drum from Sonor's late 1980s signature lineup. This snare features a sand cast bronze shell, copper-plated hardware, and die cast hoops. This is the 12 lug model, and this particular snare comes with its own flight case. According to the listing, only 200 of these snare drums were made and this one appears to be in really nice condition.

RCA BA-2 Tube Preamp DI

This listing is for a clone of the RCA BA-2B/BA-2C tube microphone preamp, custom built by Downbeat Studios. Downbeat has only built about 10 of these units, and this one is brand-new featuring NOS tubes as well as vintage transformers and VU meter. The resistors, capacitors, switches, and pots are all modern, though its all built to the original schematic's specs. Check out the listing for full build details.
