Stingray sound on a budget
Jagmart, 25.07.2020
I never really saw the appeal of the stingray, but I have always been curious as to how they play, feel, and sound, but never wanted to spend a fortune on a music man. This stingray has an amazing versatility I never thought possible out of one humbucker. It will be used in a four piece indie /rock setting and has the look and sound to fit perfectly. The volume is thunderous with real clarity. The build quality is very high, and all the frets were finished perfectly with no sharp or protruding ends. The set up out of the box was impeccable and in tune. This really has opened my eyes to what quality you can get from a relatively affordable bass. This thing is so light and balances perfectly seated or on a strap. One thing that could’ve been improved was the overall finish of the back of the neck. The satin finish on the whole was fairly smooth, but was rough in a couple of places. Overall this is a great entry point for the stingray look and sound and would definitely recommend.

good quality first entry instrument
TwisT6, 20.11.2019
as usual the bass arrived quickly in a good quality packaging, thank you Thomann.
I use the instrument for home recording and such, I had doubts at first since the bass was so cheap and I was expecting a low quality made. well I was wrong, the bass is well made and feel good in the hand, the neck is comfortable without any sharp edges on the frets. the action is too high to my taste and therefore will need a set up, there is some fret buzz as well but nothing that can't be easily solved. once plugged in, the sound is alright and is what you would expect from a first entry instrument.
+ :
- well build (doesn't feel cheap)
- nice "MM" feel
- typical growl sound you expect
- :
- action way too high
- electronics could do with an upgrade
overall very pleased with my purchase, it perfectly fit my needs for home recording and get that MM sound and feel for a fraction of the price. I would recommend to upgrade it for gigs or studio recording though.
thanks thomann

Bester Bass für den Preis
pairoscales, 26.08.2020
Als ich mich entschieden habe, Bass als mein drittes Instrument zu lernen, habe ich mir 2 Monaten lang überlegt was für einen Bass ich mir holen soll. In der Zeit war ich häufiger als je zuvor in verschiedenen Musikläden und alle möglichen Bässe in der Hand gehabt- mehrere Squire, Ibanez, Sire, Cort, viele MIM Fender, usw. und dieser Sterling SUB 4 war meine letzte Entscheidung.

Erstmal die Bespielbarkeit: die schmale Sattelbreite und glatte finish am Hals macht den Bass so einfach zu spielen, und vor allem gibt es bei dem Bass kein neck dive, was mir bei Squire und Sire Bässen gar nicht gefallen hat.
Der Sound ist klar in den Höhen, fett und markant in den Bässen - wobei ich auch sagen muss, dass er leider nicht so vielfältig ist, im Vergleich zu den anderen Bässen.
Verarbeitung war top. Der Bass lässt sich ohne Problem mit sehr niedriger Saitenlage spielen, da die Bünde echt sauber bearbeitet sind.

Also ehrlich gesagt, so eine hohe Qualität habe ich in der Preisklasse überhaupt nicht erwartet. Den Bass würde ich zu jedem Anfänger empfehlen.
