Ratings and Reviews

Best Bass Mag Period...


Hand down the best Bass magazine for all styles of playing, unlike the US Bass mag that is 80% advertising the UK bass Guitar magazine gives you current and insightful interviews and great great gear reviews that are honest and not biased towards the advertisers on the page after the review as in the other. I have been a subscriber for the emag for 2 years and the print prior for at least 3 years, keep up the great work.

I like this magazine

Infinitesimal Alien

I have a subscription to Bassplayer here in the US and this UK magazine gives a little different perspective from across the pond. I've been introduced to players and bands I possibly would not have heard of here as well as viewpoints, opinions etc.
The lessons are great as are the articles and gear reviews.



No, a magazine about bass shouldn't be about some sort of rediculus rock star image when one gets into an interview or showcase of a bass player... (I.e., the Slipknot guy on the cover). I have nothing against the Slipknot guy as a player or musician BUT the way they depict him on the cover makes me have NO respect for the products that are featured in this magazine. I KNOW advertising is a necessary evil that sells products but re the record and the ratings, I HATE the bias-based-on-advertising thing. This is what is ruining this country's conscience.
