Sterling By Music Man Releases Ball Family Reserve Inspired StingRay

History Lesson

There can be no denying the impact that the StingRay bass has had on bassists and music in general.

The no-nonsense design, the tones from its 3-band preamp and pickup, the ash body and the familiar oval pickguard have put the bottom-end into some of the most important music of the last 40 years.


The Ray34 QM series give a nod to the premium Ball Family Reserve (BFR) Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay basses.

Featuring a beautiful, highly figured maple top over and African mahogany body, the result is a visually striking and tuneful instrument.


The Ray34 QM is available in both the antique maple finish (rosewood fretboard) and honeyburst finish (maple fretboard), and features the Classic StingRay body style, maple neck, active 3 band EQ, 42mm nut and 12” fretboard radius.
