Overview

Few basses are as flat-out cool or have as much powerful tone as the famous StingRay. When it was introduced in 1976, it was the first bass to feature active electronics and advances such as a 6-bolt neck joint, contoured body, superior neck truss rod system, and rock-solid bridge to keep it on top of the pack. Constructed with a select hardwood body, maple neck, Schaller BM tuners, and 3-band active EQ, this version features dual Music Man humbucking pickups with 5-way switching for an even greater range of sound. Includes hardshell case.

Features
  • 2 massive humbucking pickups with 5-way switching and 3-band active preamp
  • Select hardwood body
  • Maple neck
  • Schaller BM tapered-post tuners

Great Bass

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay HH 4-String Bass:

I have had the Pace Car Blue one for over a year now. Within the first 3 months, I had to get the neck adjusted twice. The first time was at guitar center, the 2nd time I took it to a Luthier that has his Master Cert. I also had him do a professional set up. Since then, I have had no trouble with the bass and it sounds amazing! 4 Stars because I may gotten that one bad one that "slipped through the cracks". But it was an easy $70 fix.

Amazing Bass

By 

from Hockessin, DE.

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay HH 4-String Bass:

I bought the Music Man HH 4 bass last week. It is the most amazing bass I ever played. The Honeyburst finish is so beautiful I wanted to cry. The neck is comfortable and fast. The action is perfect. The tonal capabilities are unbelievable. A full bass sound that roars to highs that are perfect for slapping and popping. 3 band EQ for a multitude of sounds. The pick up selector switch adds so much tonal capabilities. Everything is well balanced from sound to feel. The HH 4 is definitely the way to go. Well worth the price. I wish I had bought this bass years ago.

Has become my favorite bass to play!

By 

from NE PA

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay HH 4-String Bass:

The sound and feel of this bass is unsurpassed. I own a number of basses from Fender, G&L, Rickenbacker, Hofner, and others. This bass has won me over and become my regular player. The action is fast and the tome is clean. The combination of the double humbuckers, the pickup selector switch and the vast tone control give a flexibility to play all types of music. This bass takes some time to learn all of it's tonal possibilities but the learning curve is worth the effort. The most versatile bass I own.

second time is a charm

By 

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay HH 4-String Bass:

I bought this same bass, but in a different color scheme off the showroom floor at GC only to have the neck replaced by EB/MM two weeks later. Two more weeks go by and the pre-amp was shot. I found out that the bass I bought had been on the floor for almost three years. Finally, GC replaced my bass with a brand new one and I am very happy with it. The HH feature is excellent for really nailing down the small tonal differences. The quality is impeccable and EB/MM really took care of me the whole way. The neck is very smooth, not too thick, not too thin. The bass is heavier than say, an Ibanez, but completely balanced. The tuners are great- they hold tight, so I can go get another cold one while everyone else is tuning.The frets are perfectly sized, and the overall quality and craftsmanship is unparalleled.

Get this model!

By 

from Atlanta, Georgia

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay HH 4-String Bass:

I wanted to leave a review cuz I read the one that the guy said there is no difference between this model with the dual humbuckers and the single humbucker. I don't believe he's spent much time playing this model cuz this has every tone imaginable. I've played them all from Gibsons to fenders to Ibanez to schecters to warwicks and this hands down beats them all! What does it is the tones it produces. It's absolutely amazing. Running the bridge pickup you get classic Stngray sound but switch it up a position splitting the outside coils and it sounds like a Fender Jazz. Move it to the middle position and run both humbuckers together and it will Rattle your windows like an Ibanez with Bartolini pickups. Move it one one position and it splits the middle coils and it sounds just like a Gibson thunderbird. Then the final position runs the neck humbucker and it has a sweet tone! If you have the money don't even hesitate on buying this. It's hands down the best Bass I've ever played.

Music Man Stingray HH Stealth

By 

from Melbourne, Florida

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay HH 4-String Bass:

This Bass is the best ever. I have owned them all and by far the one of the Best. I own a Warrick Stage II Streamer 5 String ying?yang model. I have not picked it up since I got this Sting ray. The set up was not good on the floor but Guitar Center set it up and put new string on it and I could not want or need another bass!My family supprised me and took me in to buy it cause they knew this is what I wanted! I recommend this bass to anyone and the best place to buy is Guitar Center!

THE BEST BASS EVER

By 

from Northeast, PA

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay HH 4-String Bass:

THE BEST BASS EVER is the only way I can describe my $$ stingray. The variety of tone that is available is awesome. I use position 1 on the pickup toggle for Funk. Positions 2,3, & 4 give a variety of rock tones. From trebley on 2 to the warm and rich tones on 3 & 4. Position 5 is hardcore when run through a distortion or fuzz. The bass that the active pickups put out will rattle your neighbors windows and teeth. If you have the means to buy one of these, you won't be disappointed. I love it!

You'll Fall in Love

By 

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay HH 4-String Bass:

When I decided to upgrade to some more serious gear, I did a tour of Leo Fender's greatest hits. Fender P-bass, J-bass, G&L L-2000, and the Stingray. All were great, and deserve their reputation, but this is the bass I fell in love with. I've always thought the Stingray had a beautiful form as well. The function is even better. The neck is slick and fast, the string spacing is generous, and it stays in tune. I play finger-style mostly, but pick also, and slap/pop/tap, and it all plays and sounds tremendous. The double-humbucker allows for powerful versatility. I've been playing with the switch in the middle, utilzing both humbuckers, but the old school bridge humbucker-only is very strong, as are the other settings. Just pick one up and play it, see if you can put it down.
