collapse expand iconDescription

The Sterling by Music Man StingRay Ray34 Maple Fingerboard is an electric bass that provides the iconic StingRay sound in an affordable, gig-ready package. This bass features a comfortably contoured alder body with a curved armrest and belly cut for ergonomic playability. The roasted maple neck and 20-frets facilitate effortless fretting and silky glissandos. Equipped with a Music Man-designed alnico humbucking pickup and 3-band active preamp with EQ control, the StingRay Ray34 dishes out massive low end with defined mids and crisp highs.

Roast Maple Neck Offers Familiar Feel

The StingRay Ray34 neck is crafted from roasted maple, a thermally treated wood that provides stability and a smooth, worn-in feel right out of the box. The roasted maple neck requires less maintenance while delivering familiar playability that most bassists crave. A 20 fret fingerboard offers plenty of room for complex basslines and solos.

Single Alnico Humbucker Provides Iconic Punch

The StingRay Ray34 is equipped with a single Music Man-designed alnico humbucking pickup that provides the punchy, defined tone the StingRay series is known for. The humbucking pickup captures rich lows, present mids, and singing highs for a balanced tone that sits perfectly in the mix.

Active 3-Band EQ Offers Tonal Control

An on-board 3-band active preamp gives you control over your tone with bass, midrange, and treble EQ knobs. Dial in deep lows, scooped mids, and crisp highs or flatten the EQ for a balanced tone. The active preamp requires a 9-volt battery but provides far more tonal control than a passive setup.

Road-Ready and Built to Last

From the comfortably contoured nyatoh body to the durable hardware, the StingRay Ray34 is built for life on the road. A 6-bolt neck joint provides rock-solid stability, while high-quality tuners keep you in tune through the most punishing sets. The StingRay Ray34 brings the legendary Music Man sound and build within reach of players on a budget.
