I have a desire to get a Musicman style bass, I really like the look of them. A real one is way out of my league, so I have been mooching around and discovered what is described as a Musicman Ernieball OLP Stingray in my home town. On another note, how are they rated? All the reveiws I can find rate them well, but I’d like some real world views on how they are. I really love my 5 string Dean, but Im just not getting the tone I want out of it.
If I was playing metal which is my main genre of choice to listen to It would be great, but I dont really wanna play that, I wann play cleaner and funkier stuff. Im struggling getting the clean tone I want out of the Dean.

The company began producing a hybrid tube-solid state amplifier co-designed by Tom Walker and Leo Fender , who was participating as a silent partner to the firm due to a “no compete” clause in the sales contract Fender had signed when he sold his original company to CBS in After the clause expired in , he was made president of MusicMan, Inc. Designed by Fender, Walker and Sterling Ball Sterling was a beta tester for the instrument , the StingRay bass appeared in and, though physically similar to a Fender Precision Bass , was a highly innovative instrument.
It employed a humbucking pickup the shape and configuration of which has become known as an “‘MM’-style pickup”, the “MM” meaning “Music Man” and an active pre-amp powered by a 9-volt battery. The early iterations of this preamp came with a 2-band EQ bass and treble ; this range was later augmented by the optional addition of a third band bass, midrange, and treble model. Piezo pickups located in the bridge saddles became an option with the 3-band version.
The StingRay’s 3-band equalization system made it possible to boost midrange, as well as low and high, frequencies. Early models have through-body stringing at the bridge, which is fitted with adjustable string mutes. Later models omit both features, except for the 30th Anniversary model of , which uses the string-through-body design and features a solid mahogany body finished in a Crimson Red Transparent finish. Later advancements on the StingRay included a 5-string version the StingRay 5 , which has a 3-way blade switch that allows the player to split the humbucking pickup’s coils, and a unique truss-rod neck adjustment system that incorporated a Teflon washer which made it highly resistant to rust and corrosion and made adjusting the neck of a StingRay relatively easy.

The impact that the Music Man StingRay had on the world of bass cannot be understated, as it was instant and almost universal. The StingRay also was an important factor in the sound of new wave, disco, country, pop and even blues recordings during the mid Seventies through the Eighties. The story of the StingRay bass easily could have ended in when the original Music Man company went out of business, but fortunately both the bass and the company were revived when Ernie Ball bought the business and paved the way for an entirely new and invigorated Music Man company.
His decision to purchase Music Man and take over production of the StingRay bass was as much a personal one as a business one. Some of those changes were brought about by Sterling Ball, designer Dudley Gimpel and Dan Norton, who built the first prototypes of the Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay, but many improvements and refinements were also brought about via feedback from artists.
Trends constantly come and go in this industry.

Box U. Ernie Ball, Inc. Owned and operated by the Ball family, the company sells its products to more than 5, music shops in the United States. The company pioneered the development of guitar strings for rock-and-roll guitarists. His father, who supplemented his income by teaching people to play the Hawaiian steel guitar, encouraged his nine-year-old son to learn the instrument, a pursuit that the younger Ball quickly tired of. When he was a teenager, however, Ball became strongly interest in music and began practicing the Hawaiian steel guitar between two and three hours a day.
When he was 19, he joined the Tommy Duncan band as a pedal guitarist. He toured the southwestern United States with the Tommy Duncan band for a year, ending his stint when the Korean War broke out. Ball joined the U. Air Force Band, formed a five-member band on the side, and played four nights a week on the air base. During his three-year tour, during which he learned to play the standard guitar, Ball fleshed out his repertoire through exposure to a variety of musical genres such as Dixieland, concert band, classical, big band, and jazz.
