MACHINE GUN - Reviews Music Man StingRay 5

US California 34 "
MM easel, top
5 string 1 microphone
Channel bird Eyes huilbr /> Active 3-band + Volume + sector coils (single / parallle / series)

I exchange against a Warwick FNA 5 (1 micro) plus intake.

I play on Hartke 1000 and now merging GK MB500 + Mesa 115 and 210 Powerhouse.

USE

Channel and maple key.
The handle must be oiled wax + 2 cots once a year and no matter how to avoid serious dboires.
It is very pleasant. Size peculiarity is that the G string is very prt of the handle panel. it takes some getting used to because it tends "derail" the handle at the beginning.

Another peculiarity is that the more gnante oiled regularly handle moves (hygromtrie) and as indicated in the doc musicman must have his little rod still in the pocket to tender or to tender (flat / incurv), do not take offense. And happens when we expect it of course not. The truss is a wheel nut with holes, easy. it happened to me 2 times to find myself with no rgl handle just before the gigs and find a moment the nail is not easy and stress.

I enlve 2 points for these two peculiarities pluttgnantes.

SONORITS

Weapon of war. It is very presents whatever the sound level of the "colleagues". No holes in the registry. An undeniable potato.
Very versatile despite the single microphone.

However the true 34 "behind many strings (that is pleasant for the game to fingers and mdiator) and you need to handle small onions to make it fully passable slap. I Yamaha BB is much easier for that style of play. Jenlve 1 point for a.

I only use the windings In parallel.

NOTICE GLOBAL

2.5 years tasss well as many plays.
I tried many other models in my life I am old, Warwick FNA, Vigier Arpge, Fender JB and P, Ibanez ATK, Aria Pro II Musicman Sabre, etc. But I do not buys low based on tests made a priori. I achte next drive and I see. My desti- nations most recently have low t: FNA5 then ATK305 japan and now Stingray 5 (I always play the ATK and also Yam BB615 correct fawn upgrade, I love because it is lg re for rpts and an impressive violin making quality I know is made in Taiwan bouuu the ugly !!!). I do not play more than 4 strings except for work or for slap sessions.
