Overview

Solidbody Electric Bass With Roasted Maple Neck and Two Alnico Humbuckers

Since it first hit the market in the ’70s, the Music Man StingRay has always been a bass player’s bass. It's been heard on countless classic recordings in all genres. With the Sterling by Music Man StingRay Ray35HH, you can take home the same historic style and sound at a more practical price. Musician’s Friend customers love this 5-string bass because the modern contoured body comfortably fits your own for hours of easy play. A roasted maple neck and maple fingerboard add a touch of upscale class to the instrument, and the spalted maple top with transparent pickguard give it a unique look. A 3-band active preamp lets you sculpt the alnico humbuckers to fit into any mix, and the 5-way switch gives you all the tonal versatility you could need. The bridge borrows the same design and roadworthy reliability of the legendary Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay, and with easy-to-reach paddle tuners, you'll always be able to keep that A string thumping at 440. Put a Ray35HH in your hands, and you'll be one happy player.

Iconic StingRay Sound


Sterling by Music Man puts the iconic sound of the StingRay at your fingertips with the Ray35HH. It’s loaded with two Sterling by Music Man-designed alnico humbucker pickups, a 5-way switch and 3-band active preamp, so you get that signature big, bold sound with all the tonal versatility you could ask for. Whether you’re a new bass player or a skilled musician who favors rock or funk, the Sterling by Music Man StingRay Ray35HH does not disappoint.

Super Smooth Playing Experience


Another great thing about the StingRay Ray35HH is its neck. Every great bass has to have a great neck, and this one will keep you playing for hours. This StingRay features a roasted maple neck with a 22-fret maple fingerboard for an ultra-smooth playing experience. With its 6-bolt attachment like the Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay, this bolt-on neck on the Ray35HH gives you more stability than most set-neck basses.

Classic StingRay Design

Pick up the Sterling by Music Man StingRay Ray35HH and we guarantee you won’t ever want to put it down. It’s got all the classic looks we love of the original StingRay, but designed for today’s player. The modern contouring makes it hip-friendly, and a comfortable bass that’s ready to play for any musical situation.

An Essential Addition to Your Collection

The Sterling by Music Man StingRay has long been trusted by players as the essential bass. The StingRay Ray35HH maintains its classic look and legendary tone, but with modern upgrades and a contemporary feel. Its massive hardened steel bridge enhances sustain, and its rock-solid construction makes it ready to go wherever you want. If your collection feels like its missing something, it’s probably a StingRay. We think it’s a must for any bassist’s collection. The StingRay Ray35HH includes deluxe gig bag.
