I'd like to congratulate Tom Bowlus (TB member) and his buddies of the successful launching of his new magazine! I received the actual paper copy (you can get online subscriptions, too) So far, I've almost read it cover to cover! Awesome pictures, great info about the gear. I find myself just staring at the great gear for seconds at a time! The clear writing style doesn't leave one confused with a lot of double speak. As the name implies, it's all about gear...not players, playing techniques or other goings on in the industry. Just gear reviews and the people who make the gear. Wait, I take that back, there was one very interesting article about bass factories in China. But I guess that about making gear too!!! As with Bass Player Magazine, (as good as it is) I really don't care about most of the players they interview and I end up just skipping to the gear reviews anyways! Imagine, a whole magazine dedicate to just gear reviews...Tom Bowlus did! High end gear (Ritter, AGC) and low end too (Squier). Everything is fair game and put into context of what it is and what function it serves us as players. The ratings system is fun and informative and the technical data is useful too! You can tell they are not biased and just report the facts as they see them. I urge everyone to check it out. http://www.bassgearmag.com/web/ Again, Congrats on a great idea, and a wonderful execution of the idea! And...thank you!
