My long and winding journey to EBMM Stingray's
Having started playing bass when I was 13, I’ve been at it for 27 years now and up until recently I never played a Stingray. Shocking, I know! When I was a teenager, my first basses were P-bass clones and then I found Warwick and stuck with them for a decade plus, eventually arriving at Ritter. As I’ve gotten older and (hopefully) much wiser, I’ve learned through experience that workhorse instruments are where it’s at. I’ve never been a big P-bass fan, or fan of passive basses for that matter, so that left me exploring G&L and Music Man, pre-EB and EBMM. L-1000/2000’s are great and all, but once I turned my attention to Stingray’s, it was all over. I finally got a chance to play a few local examples and fell in absolute love with everything about this extraordinary instrument: solid, balanced, punchy, versatile.
As such, I’ve found myself in the enviable position of being able to acquire my very first Stingray, so I hope to officially join the club very soon!
