Dial In Your Signature Sound With The Active 3-Band EQ

The RAY34's active 3-band EQ preamp puts complete tonal control right at your fingertips. Boost lows for a thick, booming bass foundation. Scoop the mids for a slick slap tone. Turn up the treble for enhanced string definition. With the RAY34's flexible EQ, you can find your ideal sound for any musical situation. The active preamp requires no batteries, taking its power from your bass amp for consistent performance. Just plug in and you're ready to EQ your way to tonal bliss.

Experience the Magic of the Iconic StingRay Humbucker

The RAY34's single alnico humbucking pickup carries on the StingRay's legacy of balancing vintage warmth and modern punch. With its focused low-mid boost, the humbucker brings out the most inspiring qualities of your playing. Notes bloom with character, giving you a dynamic range of tones. From deep dub grooves to slick funk lines, the RAY34 pickup captures your technique and playing nuance. Its focused sound cuts through the mix while retaining organic grit and personality that makes your bass work stand out.

Roasted Maple Neck Elevates Playability

The RAY34's roasted maple neck and fingerboard provide exceptional stability and a smooth, inviting playing feel. The roasted maple undergoes a proprietary heating process that allows the wood to dry slowly, enhancing its resonance and durability. The result is a neck that stays straight under the stresses of changing climates and seasons. Combined with a satin finish, the RAY34 neck plays ultra-fast while avoiding sticky friction. Jumbo frets give you loads of space for hammer-ons, pull-offs and fingerstyle techniques. The RAY34 fuses modern playability with vintage Music Man charm.

With A Lightweight Build Perfect for Gigs

The RAY34's contoured body hugs your body for hours of comfortable playing on stage. Its lightweight nyatoh body design minimizes shoulder, back and neck strain. The smooth forearm and belly carves allow unimpeded motion along the neck and strings. The sculpted upper bout is effortlessly accessible thanks to the immaculate upper fret access. Balanced and ergonomic, the RAY34 Sparkle Bass makes gigging a breeze. Plus, its vibrant sparkle finish options stand out under bright stage lighting. Express yourself with the eye-catching RAY34.
