    New SR Day, New to Forum

    Greetings to everyone, I'm a long time lurker, first time poster. I started playing bass in 1994 and the first RATM albums are what inspired me. I could never figure out how Timmy C had such a different and unique bass tone from all the other albums I listened too. Years later I discovered why, the Stingray.

    Fast forward to July 2nd at 11:59pm, I decide to see if Sweetwater got the new SR Specials in. I had been watching the videos and reading forum posts about them and new this was the time for me to buy my first Stingray. At 12:01am I refreshed the page and saw my dream bass. A 4H in Charcoal Sparkle. Last year I missed out on a Starry Night due to hesitation and promised myself I wouldn't let that happen again.

    I'm now happy to say I own my dream bass and the wait was well worth it. The voicing on the preamp is great and does everything I could ever want a bass to do. The build quality is off the charts and surpasses the "Custom Shop" basses from another brand I won't mention. It feels good to buy an American made instrument that has all the details and refinement of a custom made guitar.

    Friday I will get to try my new SR at the Meadows Casino in Pittsburgh through a kicking soundsystem and IEMs. That day cannot get here fast enough. Just wanted to check in and say hi, glad to be part of the family.

    Welcome!

    I'm totally with you on the RATM part, I only recently made that connection myself.

    Though I'll credit Cliff Burton with actually inspiring my first bass purchase, I didn't feel like I'd elevated from making noise (which was fun) until I got an Ernie Ball with Cobalt Flats.
