Bass Player magazine? No, Bass Guitar magazine!

Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere. So, I subscribe to BPM in the States (lots of ads). And subscribe to electronic BGM out of the UK (usually much better - more content). Today my US mag arrived and, gee, I swear I've read these articles before. It looks like they've been combined. So I guess it's a win for quality?

about once a year I'll buy one of those and wonder why I still fall for it. Nothing but ads and sycophantic reviews. Do they ever say a negative thing about any product?

Sound on Sound and the Oz Audio Technology are the only mags I buy these days
Loud things: Markbass LittleMark 250, Hartke HA2500 amps, Hartke XL210 cabs
Pretty things: Fender MIA P, MIM P and J, SX J, Takamine ABG
Bands: Los Mescalitos , Distorted Tarts

Bass gear magazine is pretty decent but it's released infrequently.

These days YouTube has largely replaced the role of magazines. Unfortunately, most of the content seems to be guitar centric.

They've been combined? Ooohh Errrr! Don't sound good. BPM has been too little. And too $$$ for me, but occasionally by BGM, as it's (was?) UK it was a little more down to earth and as stated, much more substantial.
But if they're combined, either both/ either, will have to be the lower price of BGM and have the same amount in it, or I won't be a buyer no mo.
