It is with great regret, a lot of sadness and a whole load of optimism that the Bass Player team announces the end of BP’s print magazine. 

We’ve faced challenges over the last few years, through a difficult retail landscape and an actual pandemic, to maintain Bass Player as a profitable magazine, but 2022’s dramatic increase in costs for us and our suppliers – paper, printing, fuel, distribution to name a few – mean that its print edition is no longer viable.
