A sleek 5-string bass with flexible tone shaping and fast playability.

The StingRay RAY35 5-string bass combines the iconic styling of the Music Man StingRay with modern appointments for the discerning bassist. Crafted with a contoured nyatoh body and smooth roasted maple neck, the RAY35 offers exceptional comfort and pizzazz. Its active 3-band preamp provides tremendous tonal control, while the StingRay-style bridge enhances resonance and sustain. With its eye-catching sparkle finishes, the StingRay RAY35 bass makes a bold style statement while delivering the flexible, rich tone serious bassists demand.

Play All Night With a Contoured Body and Roasted Maple Neck

The StingRay RAY35 features a contoured nyatoh body designed for playing comfort, whether you're jamming at home or gigging all night. Its smooth roasted maple neck also promotes effortless playability. Roasted maple retains stability and requires less truss rod adjustment than raw maple, providing a consistently smooth feel. The RAY35's 12" radius fingerboard and narrow 1.77" nut width further enhance playability. Its 34" scale length provides defined low end and excellent string tension. Overall, the RAY35 gives you a fast neck and comfortable body design built for the stage.

Sculpt Your Tone With the Active 3-Band EQ

The StingRay RAY35 comes equipped with an active 3-band preamp, giving you tremendous tonal flexibility. The preamp's bass, midrange and treble controls allow you to boost or cut frequencies as needed. Dial in a muscular low end, add some snap and sizzle up top or scoop the mids—it's up to you. The 3-band EQ makes it easy to achieve the exact tone you want for any musical situation. Whether you need a fat, thumping bass sound or a brighter, cutting tone, this preamp has you covered.

Enhance Sustain and Resonance With the Iconic StingRay Bridge

The StingRay RAY35 features a Music Man designed bridge based on the original StingRay. The bridge utilizes a solid brass block to increase resonance and enhance sustain. You'll hear and feel more vibrant, singing tone as your notes decay gracefully. The strings route through the body before terminating at this bridge, allowing excellent energy transfer for a dynamic playing experience. When you need notes to sing and ring out with authority, the StingRay bridge delivers.

Make a Statement With an Eye-Catching Purple Sparkle Finish

Available in this cool purple sparkle, the StingRay RAY35 makes a bold visual statement sure to draw eyes. The sparkle finishes shine under stage lighting, showcasing the RAY35's smooth contours and sleek design. Beyond great looks though, the RAY35 leverages modern appointments to create a flexible, resonant 5-string bass. Whether practicing at home or performing live, the StingRay RAY35 is built for discerning bassists.
