Killer electronics for super-punchy bass sound

From the very first time you plug in your Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 4 HH, you'll appreciate both the phenomenal low-end punch and the massive tonal versatility its pair of soapbar-style humbuckers delivers. Granted, these Alnico pickups' stout pole pieces and beefy windings supply a solid foundation for your tone, but it's the StingRay 4 HH's active preamp and 3-band EQ that really let you sculpt your sound. As a result, everyone from shoegazer-era rockers to funk masters have enjoyed the extreme punch this amazing instrument delivers.

Extra-beefy yet totally playable neck feels amazing

There's simply no substitute for a great neck. Ernie Ball Music Man put a ton of work into developing a neck that would provide you with the perfect balance of comfort, speed, and stability. The StingRay 4 HH's 1-5/8" nut gives you plenty of room to play and the 11" radius fingerboard gives you excellent string-to-string separation. Finished with gunstock oil and a hand-rubbed special wax blend, the back of the StingRay 4 HH's neck feels amazing and lets your hand glide along effortlessly. And with its 6-bolt attachment, this bolt-on neck delivers stability that easily surpasses most set necks.

Loaded with StingRay style, sound, and innovation

The StingRay 4 H, like the rest of Ernie Ball Music Man's StingRay bass lineup, claims roots that run back to 1971, when Ernie Ball Music Man was founded. Armed with fat and punchy humbuckers, active electronics, and a delightfully chunky neck, it's no wonder the StingRay became a standard for such bass players as Guy Pratt, Cliff Williams, and Flea.

Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 4 HH Bass Features:
  • A performance-built bass any serious player can appreciate
  • Two beefy humbuckers plus an active 3-band EQ gives you fat, punchy, and versatile tone
  • Ash body coupled with a chunky maple neck delivers amazing comfort and sustain
  • Outfitted with Schaller tuners and a hardened steel bridge for maximum stability

Working Monster Machine

Besides excellent quality with overall build. I'm very impressed by this neck. With the pre amp, controls, double humbuckers-this bass machine genuinely means business. Between my former engineer Ben Vehr, my current engineer Ryan Clapper, the unnamed man who lowered the action for me. I'm thankful for his work showing his insight and wisdom. Also, the Mangers who got this deal going-There are definitely some men who strongly demonstrate the Sweetwter spirit. My englineer Ryan, told me about the President and I saw the spirit of these valuse strongly demonstrated. I've spent thousands on instruments and equipment and have never seen this level of service. I was unprepared with this guitar's capacities. It is truly a monster machine, Iwhich takes genuine work to produce this with a bass), and a bass which means business. The pick ups are good. But the two most important things to me were this neck-it's built so well it gives the opportunity for speed and the true support service. I'm still amazed by this bass's capacity. It's built as solid and good as the photo's make you believe how it should be. Thank you
