    I can tell you this: I've been a subscriber from day One. Every time I've had a problem, I had to go straight to the Editor to get anything done. Their customer service people are a complete waste of oxygen. Email the Editor if you want action...you'll not get any otherwise.

    I've been a subscriber for about 5 years and one year I did miss issues, more than once. I called and they were actrually pretty nice to me. They sent the issue I was missing (and I usually wound up getting the original a week or so after also). They even sent me extra copies for free one time when my band had gotten reviewed.

    I may have told them that I was considering cancelling my subscription. A little threat never hurts :).
     
  5. I gave up my long standing sub 'cos of erratic supply. There was a time in the old days, when the subscribers got their issues way ahead of shops, then they changed things, and I started receiving them after they appeared in the shops, plus some issues did'nt come at all.

    Yvon, don't you live in Canada? I have a sneaking suspicion that you won't get much satisfaction from Bass Player about a foreign subscription. When I lived abroad, I had nothing but trouble with magazines. Since I have lived back in the U.S., I haven't missed an issue of Bass Player in three and a half years.

    I'm suprised you didn't have to take a maths test to get the subscription! ;)
