    Hey....That's great that you got the gig.

    I know what you mean about bringing 'too much' bass. Sometimes I take my P-bass instead of my fancier Stingrays in order to seem like I'm not...

    Hi,

    I too have a Church gig. It's a paid gig. I've been doing it for 17 years now. It's a great gig.

    I usually have my bass knob all the way up and the mid and treble...

    That's good to hear. As I said to the Lord Bongo fellow good tone is crucial for those of us who lack spectacular chops. Chops should be used to get good tone of course but they aren't aren't...

    For a player like me good tone is of major importance. I'm not a flashy player. People call me because I can play sweet and funky bass lines. If they want brilliant, and blistering, solos...

    In Praise Of The Stingray HH

    I took my trusty Stingray HH on a gig last Friday and, later on, heard a couple of recordings of a couple of the songs we played. (The picture I included wasn't the gig I'm...

    Thanks everyone for the sensible suggestions. By Stingray HH is one of the great loves of my life. It has incredible tone and my left hand absolutely loves the fretboard.

    I very...

    Hi,

    It acts more like a battery problem than a jack problem. I've had jacks go bad and the symptoms are different.

    Come to think of it I've never had a jack go bad on...

    From what I've read it does act like a battery fault. I'll check the terminals.

    Thanks!

    I can assume that it's not my phone as the problem has only come up with one of my basses. (I've got another Stingray that has never made the sounds.)

    Thanks for the information.

    Hi

    I'm going to try changing the battery. It's a fairly new battery. I changed it last December.

    The problem does match the descriptions of low battery symptoms that I've...

    The noises are 'weird alien noises'. There is some high pitched squeals and some "alien farting' noises. The noises are all strange electronic stuff.
  14. Has anyone had a problem with a Stingray making strange noises?

    Hi,

    I've got an HH Stingray that just started to make very strange noises. It did it a couple of times while I was practicing. I checked the battery and, according to the tester, it...

    Thanks. It sounds like you did what I did. I've got the pickup slanted away from the E string.

    I took the bass on a gig a couple of days ago with the pickup lowered and it sounded great. ...

    Thanks for the information.

    The distortion is due to the pickup being too close to the strings. Now that I've lowered the pickup considerably it doesn't distort.

    What is the regular setting? Until this situation I've done little with the pickup height on any of the basses I've owned.

    I am the original owner. I'm not, by any stretch, trying to malign the fine basses that Music Man makes. I have 3 Music Man basses (2 Stingrays and a Cutlass) and they are really nice basses. ...

    Hi,

    I'm sure that the pickup is very hot. It's hot with a brand new battery.

    I have another Stingray. (It's an 'HH.) The pickups are perfectly normal. ...

    I appreciate the advice. It won't work though. 4/32 inches from the E string would cause distortion if I plucked the string in a normal fashion. The pickup is very hot. Now that I've...

    Pickup Height on Stingray Classic

    I've got a 4 string Stingray Classic that is a great bass. The pickup is the most powerful I've ever encountered and it's not a 'normal' pickup.

    The E string is VERY...

    Let me first say that I'm guessing here. It sounds like when you "cranked" the truss rod the first time there was a delayed effect. I've had that happen. I've gotten the action right where I...

    You're right of course. I now know that I should have tweaked it first. It seemed fine when I tried it in the music store. Playing with other musicians is different though.

    Stingray Classic Pickup Settings

    Hi All,

    I just got a Stingray Classic. I bought it a couple of days ago and gigged on it that evening.

    When I started playing with other players I quickly realized...
