Welcome to the new MusicRadar

Regular visitors to the site will have noticed that we've been testing our new design on article pages and news, review and tuition indexes for the last few weeks. Today we're ready to unveil the rest of our new look to the world.
Regular visitors to the site will have noticed that we've been testing our new design on article pages and news, reviews and tuition indexes for the last few weeks. Today we're ready to unveil the rest of our new look to the world.
The new look will take a few hours to work its way around the internet, but if you're not already, you'll very shortly be looking at the new MusicRadar. In the meantime, you can click here to view beta.musicradar.com.
Our primary aim has been to make it easier for you to find the content you want. That's why Guitars, Tech and Drums have been given separate homepage feeds. We've also decluttered article pages to make them easier to read and to better showcase some of the fantastic imagery and video we have to offer.
In addition we've done a lot of work to the backend to make pages load faster, but we won't bore you with that today.
We'll be in beta for the next couple weeks while we finalise features and squash bugs. Please let us know if you experience any technical issues.
This is just the start, though - as ever, we'll keep working to improve MusicRadar. In the short term we'll be launching new versions of our sister magazine websites. In the medium and long-term we will be reworking our Gearfinder and commenting engines and rolling out new user review features. These will (among other things) make it easier for you to give us your views on the gear you love. We'd also like to know what features you'd like to see on the site in the future.
We hope you like the new look and would like to thank you for your continued support of MusicRadar.
