Q: How can I subscribe or renew to Strings Magazine?

A: To become a subscriber, click here. To renew your existing subscription click here.

Q: When will I receive my first issue?

A:  It will likely take 6-8 weeks to receive your first copy in the mail. For destinations outside of the United States, please allow up to 10 weeks.

We know, it sounds like a long time to wait! When we mail your first issue depends on when you placed your order and where we are in our publishing schedule. We send issues at the same time to all active subscribers we have on file (we do this monthly, meaning there are two shipments per issue) – this is how we can keep your subscription price affordable and still afford the postage fees ourselves!

Please note that we cannot guarantee delivery dates – while you may see the magazine available at your local music store or for sale online, that does not mean your own copy is not already in transit to you or scheduled to be sent to you on our next bulk shipment date.

Q: How can I access my digital edition of Strings?

A: If you have an active subscription, you can download the current digital edition. Each month, we send an e-mail out to active subscribers with a unique download link. If you haven't received this e-mail, please contact us at StringsService@stringletter.com to make sure your subscription account record is up to date with your e-mail address.
