StingRay Ray4HH Maple Fingerboard Electric Bass, a robust yet affordable bass from Sterling by Music Man. Packed with professional features, this bass is ideal for beginners and working musicians alike. It features two low-noise humbucking pickups with a five-way switch, allowing for a range of tones from bright and punchy to deep and growling. An active 9V preamp provides a boost and three-band EQ for total tonal control.

Dual Pickups Open Up a World of Tone

With its dual humbucking pickups and five-way switch, the StingRay HH lets you explore a variety of tones to suit any musical style. The pickups deliver a hot, high-output sound with minimal noise. Select the neck pickup alone for a deep, rounded tone, the bridge pickup alone for an aggressive, biting growl or combine them both for a balanced tone with full lows and articulate highs. The five-way switch also provides two single-coil sounds, giving you a quacky, vintage-style tone. With this much tonal variety at your fingertips, you'll be ready for any gig.

Active Preamp Provides Power and Control

The StingRay HH features an active 9V preamp that provides a significant boost in output and three-band EQ control. Sculpt your tone with bass, midrange and treble controls, dialing in the perfect balance of low-end thump, midrange punch and high-end sizzle. The preamp also gives you more than enough power and headroom for playing in a variety of live and studio settings.

Premium Components for Solid Performance

Designed and crafted for professional use, the StingRay HH provides rock-solid performance and playability. It features an adjustable heavy-duty bridge for stable intonation, a sleek contoured body for comfortable playability and a maple fingerboard for a fast, smooth feel under your fingers. Premium components like these, combined with high-quality pickups and electronics, make the StingRay HH a bass you can rely on for years of great tone and performance.
