    I've always used angled cables, looped around the strap. No problems at all.

    Are you saying that straight cables work better?

    I've had the exact opposite experience, in Italy. I was looking for a Special last summer and always found Classics or Old Smoothies.

    Sure.
    Anyway... I've talked with the shop where I bought the bass and they offered me a free full check, so I accepted. We don't have EBMM here, so the bass will be shipped to the italian...

    I'm a humble person and I don't like to overrate my tech skills at all, but I'm pretty sure that if I struggle to locate a problem, most of the repair shops wouldn't do much more than I did until...

    Slinkies are definitely my favourite rounwound strings, but they should make the regular flats (Group) easier to find (if they still mkae them). Cobalt flats seem the only option available, and I...

    If the problem was just a stupid loose input jack, which I easily fixed in 5 minutes, there is nothing to worry about. If it's not, the problem will shop up again for sure, and I'll see what to do....

    If the bass keeps working, I can't see any reason why I should replace anything. Plus, I don't think the battery box is the culprit, to be honest. Yesterday it worked fine again, it's two days now.

    On both my Caprice and StingRay Special, E and G strings are equidistant from the bridge pickups. I've made some tests and they sound better in this way.
    The Caprice has a neck P pickup which I set...

    Thanks for the suggestions.
    I'll see if I permanently solved the issue with time and constant use of the bass.

    I've replaced the batteries but the problem was still there. Touching the plug was instantly bringing the signal back, so I thought about a faulty jack socket or bad contat or soldering. I removed...

    Both batteries are Duracell. I've taken a look inside both battery slots and honestly I don't know where and how the batteries make contact. How does that work?
    I'll also try to move the bass a lot...

    Thanks, Danny.
    The reason why I'm asking is because I always thaught that the usual symptoms of a low battery is lack of headroom, distortion, volume drops. This seems more like an instant cut of...
  16. Volume cutting with StingRay Special

    Hi,
    I bought a brand new StingRay special a week ago. I played it at the shop for a while before buying it, and eveything was absolutely fine.
    Yesterday I was reviewing a couple of songs before...

    I'm currently using a Caprice with Cobalt flats and a Stingray with Slinky rounds.
    Honestly, I prefer other flats over EB Cobalts, but they match the Caprice very well. My favourite flats are Fender...

    Good question. I'll tell you the whole story.
    I started looking for Special Rays during this summer and finding one here in Italy was almost impossible. Even Thomann and other EU big shops had a...
