Founded in 2014, Sparkplug ( is the sharing economy marketplace where musicians rent instruments, gear, and space to and from each other. Musicians need instruments, gear, and creative spaces (like studios or rehearsal rooms) to create and perform their music. It's expensive and risky (and sometimes just impossible) to travel with all of your gear or own everything that you need. Traditional rental options are expensive, not online, decentralized, and do not often have transparent pricing or gear lists. Sparkplug provides a marketplace with transparent pricing where musicians can give back to other musicians and make money from the instruments that they own while connecting with other artists from around the world.
