    Loss volume switch stingray 5

    Hello all,*

    I have buy a beautiful stingray 5 Lefty(hard to find) in second hand.
    The sound and the shape are perfect but i have a problem.
    The sound when the selector are in the bridge position i have a big sound but when i pass in the middle and neck position the sound are tiny and i need to boost the volume to hear the bass.

    Someone know the problem ?*
    Thanks.

    Do you have any pictures of your bass? Is this a single pickup model, an HH, or an HS?

    It's a H bass with a single pickup.

    Sounds like an issue with the switch or associated wiring.

    What year is the stingray? They were wired differently depending on when they were made.

    Do you think the problem is Wiring or Switch ?

    Most likely with the switch. The wiring from the pickup is intact, or else you would not get the correct sound in the bridge position.

    I would see who the EBMM distributor is in France, to see if they can get the part for you. There also may be other switches that will work. EBMM doesn't make switches, so you can possibly source a switch from an entirely different source.

    No, I do not. I would recommend contacting EBMM customer service to see if they can tell you which switches would work.

    Also, according to the EBMM website, they certainly do have a distributor in France: Ernie Ball : le plus grand stock de France | Algam

    Does it do that when you have the selector in the bridge position? That should be both coils on at the same time. Also you said that the selector switch was broken, did you not?

    I think you should call a tech and arrange for them to look at it.
