Product Description

Upon its release in the late 70’s the StingRay bass was a truly revolutionary design with new pickups and forward-thinking features. This StingRay from Sterling continues that mindset, combining outstanding playability with that classic bold tone. Active electronics, low noise hum bucking pickups, rock solid hardware and a simple, uncluttered look that is instantly recognizable and respected.

Great Bass for the money
What is your opinion of this product?
I got this bass to have a cost friendly bass for me, and for my son to use as he learns. It really is a great deal for the money. The preamps on these have been improved quite a bit, and you can get a great variety of sounds from it. Bright and snappy, deep and rich, I can get all of those. The hardware isn't top of the line, but it works perfectly. Rarely goes out of tune. Many years ago, I had a pre-Ernie Ball StingRay... Does this one sound like the full fledged Ray? I couldn't tell you. But what I can tell you is that if you are looking for a well made, budget friendly bass with many tonal option, I don't think you can go wrong with the SUB Ray.

The most bass for your buck!
What is your opinion of this product?
The Sterling by Music Man, Sting Ray, SUB series bass is a solid instrument both literally and figuratively. The body is heavy, producing great sustain and tone. The single humbucker pickup gets the job done in a professional manner without worrying about switching between pickup configurations. The built-in active pre-amp circuitry gives you an extra boost in volume and clarity compared to passive electronics. The 9-volt battery lasts for hours and hours of playing. There's a volume knob, plus treble and bass to adjust your tone without a hassle. The tuners and other hardware are dependable and attractive. This bass stays in tune no matter what style you play. The action comes set low and easy. Straight out of the box, my Sterling Sting Ray played like a much more expensive instrument. I consider this bass a professional model that is good for practice, recording or gigging. As a professional bassist, this is the most bass for the buck I've ever experienced!

I love it!
What is your opinion of this product?
Amazing guitar not just for the low price but as a whole! Contemplated getting a more expensive one or a squire as I’ve had one before and this thing is definitely of a higher quality and quite capable. Definitely feels, plays and is the quality of a much more expensive guitar.

Excellent bass for the money!
What is your opinion of this product?
The build quality of the instrument exceeded my expectations for a bass in this price range and is suitable for both beginners and seasoned players as well those who are looking for the Music Man Stingray sound. The bridge is heavy-duty and very similar to the higher-priced Music Man basses. The tuning keys are good and hold a tuning but are just a little tight but that can be adjusted to your preference. The pickup is decent but is not as smooth as I would like. It's okay if you play a lot of slap but that too can be tweaked by rolling back on the treble control. Strings will also have a big effect on the sound. The output is higher than a passive bass so some judicial use of the gain control is in order to prevent overload. Now for the best part... the neck is thin and narrow very much like a Jazz Bass and has a satin finish on the back. it has great action and is easy to adjust with the wheel at the base of the neck. Highly Recommended!

It's got to be the best $300 I have ever spent!
What is your opinion of this product?
It arrived on time, excellent setup. The only thing that stopped me from giving it the five star rating on the value of this bass is the volume knob. It's set up so that it's either really on...or by turning slightly it's totally off! Strangest thing. I've gigged with it twice now and everyone loves the smooth tone. It's simple enough to adjust to the volume thing.
