    Andertons have almost half a million subscribers, if each of their subscribers gave them a penny every month that would make £60,000. You can't blame them for trying.

  • I'm not really sure what the difference is between andertons asking for contributions from people who like what they do and guitar magazines having a cover price.

    If you're going to have a go at Andertons for charging for glorified advertising then surely guitar mags are worthy of the same ire? They're little better

    Probably true.  But they should be.

    And as soon as the public realised this it marked the beginning of the end of magazines. 
    My Trade Feedback Thread is here

    Been uploading old tracks I recorded ages ago and hopefully some new noodles here.

    Do guitar magazines sell the products they write about for profit?

    Surely the difference is that you have to pay the price or you can't have the magazine whereas you get the Anderton's videos whether you pay or not?

    Or is Anderton's idea to make the videos cost and you can only get them if you pay?

    That would be awesome. I hope they do that, cos they're not getting any of my money.

    I love bass but I don’t like two bassists noodling. Not my thing even though bass is my number one instrument

    Fwvliw i like Andertons TV. The sounds like series is good, in fact anything with Rabea Massaad I generally enjoy watching.
    Would I pay for the content as it is, probably not but then I have brought stuff from the shop. Perhaps giving video access vouchers to customer's spending more than £xx in store or online is a compromise.

    -the advertisers, without whom guitar magazines could not exist, certainly do.

    Not read the whole thread but do Andertons want us to pay them, so they can sell us their products? 
    They only review stuff they sell.

    It's like a trade show, paying a fee to be sold to is just nuts to me. 

    You Tube will one day charge a fee, but until then the only YTs I support are individuals who can teach me something without wanting me to buy from them or use their services. eg Randy Schartiger

    They depend on advertising.  If they were to review the latest PRS and say it was truly awful, then PRS could pull their full page ads.

    I don't think I've ever seen a guitar magazine say "Do not buy this guitar, as this other one is better and 20% cheaper"
