Classic StingRay on a Stingray5(!)

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by carl-anton, Apr 5, 2002.


  1. I got a little confused by recent posts, about which position the switch on a SR5 should be in to give the classic StingRay sound. I emailed the excellent MusicMan customer service. - So if anybody is confused too, here is the answer:

    "Lars:
    Thanks for contacting Ernie Ball and sorry for the late response.

    The bridge position (parallel) is the standard StingRay sound.

    Best Regards,

    I was part of that, sorry. Thanks for the info but


    I still maintain that using my ears I would always select the series option for 'that' sound and parallel to tame the highs. Personal opininon alert.

    We will have to agree to disagree. I have e-mailed EB with queries and they are very good. Perhaps we agree on that?

    Whereas the parallel setting yields that aggressive, classic Stingray sound, I definitely prefer running my SR 5 fretless in series. I feel it gives me a rich, almost chorus like tone.
