    ive been wondering that. ive been watching Davidsinrocks' bass videos and his 2-band stingray sounds absolutely amazing yet i wasnt much of a fan of the classic stingray tone.
    is there any difference on what they used in the 90's 2-band stingrays than on the classic stingrays??

    Consider that what you are liking is the combination of Stingray + whatever amp, cabs, strings, settings, and touch he is using.

    Thank you KB.

    The Stingray 4 has always had alnico magnets. As far as the early 90s model, like the classic, many have highly figured gloss birds-eye maple necks, and mute-style bridges. The Classics, have through body stringing and a rounder fretboard. Early 90s Rays were available with either two band (like the Classic) or three band eq.

    As far as a specific example of Stingray tone, many things go into that: amp, strings, signal processing, and the player himself.

    Thanks for the correction.

    To the OP: For what it's worth, I think 2band Rays are just awesome.

    I think there is confusion because the Stingray 5 has changed over the years from alnico to ceramic, and later back to alnico.
