The Ray35 bass offers a rich, round sound for a deep bottom end, pronounced mids, and clear voiced highs. A visually striking and toneful bass, the Ray35 pays tribute to that iconic Music Man StingRay 5 bass that was an instant hit with bassists when it was released 30 years ago in 1987. The Sterling by Music Man StingRay5 "Ray35" features an all-new roasted maple neck, a 3-band active preamp, a modern contoured body and a bridge modeled after the iconic Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay. Available in Natural Swamp Ash and Black (Mahogany body).
The electronics are feature packed, and include a 3 position pickup selector that allows the player to choose from: Series, Parallel, and Series with Filter. The triumvirate of the AlNiCo magnet in the Music Man designed humbucker, the tones from the Music Man designed 3-band preamp and 3 position pickup selector truly capture that “StingRay Sound”, and showcase the incredible versatility of the Ray35.
The Ray35 Sterling by Music Man bass bridge is modeled after the heavy duty Music Man design, and features 5 fully adjustable and intonatable steel barrel saddles for fantastic tone. Similarly, the tuning keys on the 4+1 trademark design headstock are also of rugged, 20:1 ratio, heavy duty design. Whether at home or on the road, all of the hardware will give the player years of trouble free, accurate playability.
Manufactured in Korea by Master Craftsmen, the Ray35 is truly a benchmark instrument for the Sterling By Music Man line.
