Reverb lp closed after three years of successful operation while showing signs that it would become a successful marketplace. Perhaps the "numbers" were disappointing for the new owners (Etsy) of Reverb and decided not to continue running Reverb Lp.
Maybe they realized that Reverb Lp couldn't give anything new. From the moment they used the database that, so generously, was provided to them by Discogs without bringing anything new to the Vinyl Community map, the future was suspenseful.
But Vinylom is here and is built steadily and day by day.
Vinylom is not Reverb LP. Vinylom is a site created to promote the history and culture of the vinyl record as no one has done so far.
In addition to the content there is a marketplace that grows as you read these lines. A marketplace that has items you can't find anywhere else.
- If you want to buy the next album in your collection, on the Vinylom Marketplace are available for sale 2 million Vinyl Records and 500+ sellers from US, UK, Europe and the rest of the World are selling their stuff!!. The number grows every day
- If you are a seller and want to sell your items on vinylom's marketplace send us your list (xls, csv, text file, discogs zipped file etc) via the bulk upload page. We'll take care of the rest. Otherwise You can press the Sell button and start uploading your items for sale.
- At VINYLOM Encyclopedia we present The story behind every Rare Vinyl Record

And there are already some very interesting things planned that will unfold as Vinylom grows.
Vinylom marketplace already has several items for sale that do not exist anywhere else. Even the Discogs don't have them in his database.
Let’s say here that Discogs is an excellent site and marketplace and they deserve every success.
They have worked very hard to get to where they are and they deserve real congratulations.
But Vinylom is something different. Vinylom has focused exclusively on the vinyl record and the entire culture that surrounds it.
The content we create is unique and our approach to the collector and the dealer is a little different. And as we develop, that will be more obvious.
We are not going anywhere
Unlike Reverb Lp, Vinylom is not going anywhere. Our love of vinyl has more to do with the numbers and sales of the marketplace.
And if we have to keep it alive for our pleasure and cover the development costs from our pocket, we'll do it very gladly.
But your participation will help us grow and help spread the culture and history of the vinyl record faster.
It will help us develop more interesting and original vinyl-related content.
It will help sellers sell their items more easily.
It will help buyers find things they can't find anywhere else.
