nice ray clone
unknown pleasure, 28.07.2019
Okay, first I have no clue how a ray should sound other then what others told me. From this I expected a mid oriented sound. I was ready to go fiddle with the knobs on my amp, a gallien krueger which has a pretty bright modern tone to it. Surprise, it has plenty of low end and a nice up mid zing. I bought this one with the idea of changing the pickup for something a bit more quality.
No need really it sounds fine the way it is.

Next looks, one word damn. It looks just awesome, good paintjob, nice shine, some wood showing through. Finish otherwise is excellent, no sharp edges to the frets whatsoever. Better then my premium Ibanez. Tuners are good, bit heavy, but no glitches and hold the tune well. I changed the strings straight away, but there weren’t even that terrible. Knobs are fine and work well, volume is also not a problem, no issue that is only passive where the original is active. It is plenty loud.

The neck is solid, I mean baseball bat solid, no slim jazzneck this, this is lumberjack country. But again, good and straight as an arrow.

Okay, the lesser points, the action. It was setup by thomann already so it was ready to play straight from the box. Just little tweaking on the intonation which was a tad sharp at the twelfth fret and then I started on the action, I play fingerstyle and can go with very low action. Ever since I got that Ibanez SR1820 I know what good action feels like and I try to setup all my basses that low.
This just won’t take it, it is a nice action, no worries, but not as light as my ibby or my jazzbass.
Any lower and I get fretbuzz, I don't mind a little, I try to get the marcus miller fret overdrive. When you dig deep and hard it may buzz just a little to get that gritty metallic zing into the tone without disturbing the actual tone itself.

So this baby makes you work a bit harder, sort of goes with the thick neck and the weight. That really surprised me, it a basswood body, which usually are light, my washburn weighted almost nothing, this axe is quite hefty. Most basses these days are light, I learned it on a 70’s precision, those weigh a ton. This one is not that heavy, but none of the modern feathery feel.
Get a good strap!
Which for me really works for a ray clone. It is supposed to be the bad boy of Leo Fenders creations and well it certainly feels like it.

So yeah, points on the finish and the hardware which are pretty amazing for this money, lost a star on the action.

But overall, I cannot say anything else then I am very, very impressed by this amount of niceness for this little money.
I bought it for two reasons, I simply wanted a ray clone, and this is great for those bit more dodgy places where you cant store your stuff properly. I do love it, the looks alone are killer, that big fat pickup alone, man.. Have yet to try it in the band setting. I’m sure it will be alright. This was my first HB experience and I already figured if I was starting just now I would get a couple of them.
Do put good strings on it though. I put Daddario’s balanced tension nickels on it and those work great. And it comes with a cord, also amazing.

Update, opened it, wanted to upgrade the pots, one thing I always do wiht budget guitars, the pots are good, but a serious set of quality pots is always better.
Those are mini's. And the tone pot position wont allow for a regular pot. I dont want to take the router and the cover plate is quite narrow so it'll be a tricky job.
Still sounds fantastic, still might change out the pick-up. but it is great as it comes, no worries. Gonna try it in the band setting this friday.

And that friday came and went. This axe makes you work, offcourse it does not have arange of sounds build in like active bases wiht eq's. so it is amp fiddling. Had not brough my own amp, this thing is heavey enough. So it was some peavy which I did not like very much.
I think it really has a ray sound, it has plenty of deep low guts and a good punchy mid section and a tad of that jazzy honk on the higher octaves which I like, if you stick a little fiddly loop between that driving thunder.
the weight, the thick neck and the fact it has no easy reserve in the pick. some basses have more of a volume thing that goes up quite a bit if you dig in a little harder. This is just loud no matter how you play, if you dig deeper it starts driving the amp. I really should put this over a tube amp so I can play those tubes. But this means when ever you want to underline something or make the fill stick out you give it the beans. So you work hard and it growls and sings. Or should I say stings?

Again a stupendous good piece of kit for little money, I think this will give the lower tier sterlings a kick in the backside with ease.
our drummer already was pushing me to use this all the time.

I don't think I could have picked a better bass to start
sjmDrum, 11.09.2018
So first, let's get the bad out of the way, and there's not much.

1. I'd rather it have a master volume, coil blend, and master tone. Instead it has one volume for each coil and a master tone. Effectively the same, but in terms of how easy it is to use, if I want to mute the bass through the pots, I have to turn two of them. Very small nit pick, and really it's a point of preference.
2. The 18th fret is a bit high, which leads to some fret buzzing on the higher frets (14-17) for the E and A strings, but I'm not spending a lot of time, if any time at all up there on those strings anyway.

And that's really it for what I don't like. Now for the good.

1. This thing looks great. The burst finish with the matching headstock is something I'm very very happy with.
2. This thing sounds great. It looks like a music man stingray, and sounds a bit like it, though not exactly. It has some great bright presence, a lot of punch, and a lot of output despite being a passive bass.
3. The quality. I looked for any flaws in the finish and found none. The frets are not at all sharp, and the neck feels amazing. It's huge and fits my big mitts really well. Tuners work pretty well. They feel a bit tight, but don't seem to have any jumps or dead spots. The pots aren't scratchy (at least not yet), and the bridge seems sturdy and strong.
4. It's simple. Passive bass, one pickup, four strings. No nonsense. You pick this bass up and play, that's it. You don't spend time over-tweaking the EQ. You don't need to worry about the battery going dead. You don't really need to wonder if it would sound better on the neck or the bridge pickup, though you do get a little bit of flexibility there, but that's more of a "Would a single coil sound better than a humbucker?" choice than a bridge/neck choice. Most of the time the humbucker is all you need, though (see the nitpick about volume/blend/tone vs volume/volume/tone above).
5. It's balanced well. With a strap, there's a bit of neck dive, but it still stays with the headstock above the top horn of the body.
6. It came with a pretty good setup. Shipping over the ocean from Germany to the US, you expect a bit of an issue, and there was a little bit. I had to turn the truss rod about a quarter turn to get the fret buzz to go away, but after that I was able to lower the action a bit to where it's nice and comfortable.

Good but some quality control issues.
RobBooth, 28.04.2018
Whoever is doing quality checks on these basses needs to improve ! The finish on these basses appears to be a photo laminate applied over a basswood core of indeterminate quality. This looks good but you can't compare it to something like a Sterling Sub where you are getting a solid 2 or 3 piece body. The maple neck is well made with generally good fretting with a few sharp ends.

Out of the box the truss rod had not been adjusted and the neck had too much relief. About half a turn was needed with the stock strings to get the neck playable.

The pickup was misaligned with one corner pushed right into the body. I had to remove the pick guard to rectify this which appeared to be caused by the foam supporting pads being misshaped. I added some extra foam to the front of the pickup and this enabled me to set the pickup correctly.

Lastly the nut is not well cut with some strings too low and some too high at the first fret. With the bass properly setup I have buzz at the first fret on one string that will need repairing.

After a few hours work I have the action at under 2mm and the bass plays and sounds good for the price. However, a beginner would not have been able to achieve the same result. I must admit I seriously considered returning this bass.

Postscript: I have now sold this bass and bought a used Sterling SUB in walnut satin. This has better body wood and superior active electronics which give a better sound without the unnecessary coil tap found on the HB. This is a good value bass but its not worth 2 or 3 times the price as suggested by some reviewers. The SUB is a better instrument but you also pay a price premium.

Great and affordable bass
GiuliusSam, 09.03.2020
This bass guitar comes with no flaws. It is not the first time I buy an HB bass and I have to say they always comes with a good overall setup.

This has a great maple neck, solid and confortable.
It is really good-looking and quite light and very easy to embrace and play.

Sounds good even with only one pick-up and it has not an aggressive feel nor an overwhelming presence... It is the ideal solution for bass players who want to be precise, smart and make effective bass lines, without exagerations.

I suppose the five string "Stingray-like" version, aka HB MM-84, with its two pickups, has more options for different kinds of sound, but I preferred this four-string version since it lighter and more easy to play with the slap technique.

For the price it costs, it is definitely a big deal, with no flaws.
