Published Mar 22, 2017Discogs is lauded by record collectors for both its marketplace and database aspects, and now the site's creators are set to conquer the world of audio equipment with the launch of a new spinoff site called Gearogs.
In undertaking "a mission to be the largest database of audio equipment on the planet," the site aims to identify and chronicle every different turntable, audio recorder, amplifier, effects pedal, microphone, mixer and more.
Much like its sister site, Gearogs will allow users to buy and sell audio gear, as well as add their pieces to the database. The site is available as a database, with a full marketplace launch set to take place in April. Pages for each item tell users everything from the date of production, to form factor to power source.
The news was broken by Discogs founder and CEO Kevin Lewandoski in an interview with THUMP, where he also revealed plans to apply the Discogs concept to the worlds of film, books and comics.
