Sterling by Music Man Ray34QM Bass

The Sterling by Music Man Ray34QM pays tribute to that iconic, original Music Man StingRay bass design in look, feel and sound.

The Ray34QM bass features a select, even grained African Mahogany body, offering a rich, round sound for a deep bottom end, pronounced mids, and clear voiced highs. The top of the bass is adorned with rich, highly figured Quilted Maple, which shows off the Neptune Blue finish beautifully. The visually stunning craftsmanship imparts a stunning beauty that shows its lineage in the highly sought after Ball Family Reserve instruments.

The electronics feature a no nonsense layout, and the tones from the Music Man designed 3-band preamp and pickup truly capture that "StingRay Sound".

Ray34QM's Sterling by Music Man bass bridge is modeled after the heavy duty Music Man design, and features fully adjustable and intonatable steel barrel saddles for fantastic tone. Similarly, the tuning keys on the 3+1 trademark design headstock are also of rugged, 20:1 ratio, heavy duty design. Whether at home or on the road, all of the hardware will give the player years of trouble free, accurate playability.

Premium Tonewoods Throughout

Ray34QM features a toneful, select African Mahogany body capped with gorgeous, highly figured quilted Maple, and is manufactured by Master Craftsmen in Korea.

It's Not Just A Looker

The Music Man designed pickup and active preamp assembly are StingRay to the core, delivering a classic tone that has rocked the 'bottom end' of many hits spanning generations.

Overall: I received this Bass today by FEDEx; let me first say i was expecting to see a guitar with some ugly scratches on it since I got it blemished.So I was prepared for this. When I took it out of the gig bag. It had lots of finger prints on it, but no scratches at all. I looked hard to find a dent or something. But no luck! the only thing I could find to complain about was the bridge setting was out of wack. After I polished her up with some Formula 65,and adjusted the bridge. This Bass is utterly Beautiful... I couldn't put it down all day. The sound was amazing (I chanded the strings to some DR Pure Blues). The harmonics are better than on my Fender deluxe active, which has great harmonics. If you are looking for a Music Man Bass but don't have that much money to spend on one. Please GET THIS BASS ASAP!!!! You will not be disappointed at all.. It sounds like a Music Man, It looks like a Music Man. And if you get one get the QM version, it's visually Stunning. The pics do it no justice. It's Gorgeous

Overall: This is my 3rd Music Man Sterling bass that I have owned. The first 2 were in the lower price range but I was still extremely happy with them. I bought the Ray34QM as I was looking for a bass with a wide tonal range to support the large variety of music my current project covers (the beautiful Neptune Blue Burst finish was an added incentive...gorgeous bass!). The bass arrived well packed and protected with a decent quality gig bag. It was well set up out of the case, I will let it adjust for a few weeks and then run a full set up on it again. I gave the bass a good look over and was extremely impressed with the fit and finish of the bass, very well put together, the neck was well set with no gaps, the hardware was solid and the finish was flawless. An added bonus to me was the maple neck, darker maple with a nice vintage look to it. Fretwork was well done and smooth. Not a big fan of the Ernie Ball strings, I am a D'Addario guy but that is a personal choice. It sits very comfortably with a strap with good balance, no neck dive. When I plugged it in and tuned it up I ran it through my Tech 21 GED-2112 Sansamp and was blown away by the sound of this bass. I started with all controls maxed (4 knob active with Master Volume, Treble, Mid and Bass). Running full out it had a very nice round bottom end coupled with a very tight high end twang. I rolled off the treble, set the mid about 3/4 and left the bass full on and this thing SINGS!! The controls are very sensitive and minor changes to the knob settings changed the sound easily and I was able to get sounds that range from a vintage motown thump to an almost Ric sounding high end. Took it to practice last night and the rest of the band was blown away by the sound and looks of this bass. I anticipate this one to be a major player in my herd of basses.
