Bass - Music Man - Spector - Ken Smith - Tagima

CALIFORNIA HERITAGE SINCE 1974

Originally founded in 1974, Music Man built its name leading an industry revolution, introducing active electronics on its production instruments. As part of the team during the 70’s, Sterling Ball played an important role on the design and development of the iconic StingRay basses.

Officially purchasing the company in 1984, Sterling, joined later by his sons Scott and Brian, has built a team of dedicated professionals who collectively share a common goal: building the highest level of hand-crafted instruments available. 

Shipping to more than 135 countries from the Central Coast of California, the brand continues to expand its reach worldwide based on the strict quality standards, innovative design and the finest craftsmanship it is known for.

  1. Ernie Ball Music Man Exclusive Run StingRay Special 4-String H Bass, Trans Amber, Roasted Flame Maple, Super Lightweight Ash - F90015

    Player's Perspective Why did we hop on a 9+ hour (each way) train ride to go to San Luis Obispo so we could specifically select all of the woods for our exclusive run of instruments? So that you can get ash and flame maple that looks like this! AND so you can get a StingRay that only weighs... ... ... Wait for it... Under 8 lbs! Music Stor

  4. Ernie Ball Music Man Bongo 5 HH 5-String Bass, Fuscia Sparkle, Matching Headstock

    Player's Perspective Music Man's Bongo bass doesn't really resemble anything else on the market. For starters, the aesthetics of this bass were realized with the help of the BMW design team. So it's no wonder why this feels like a racecar under your fingers. The engine (aka pre-amp) is revved, roaring, and ready to rip, just as a well-

  6. Spector EuroBolt 4 Bass, Metallic Blue, Roasted Maple Neck and Fretboard, Aguilar Pickups and Preamp

    Playler's Perspective The newest addition to Spector's lineup of killer basses is the EuroBolt series. It's a proven design that now has a bit more of a classic sound and feel by being a bolt-on instrumnt. Straight away this bass felt comfortable. We were initially taken aback by just how dark the roasted maple is. We even contacted Spector just

After Leo Fender's near-death experience which caused him to sell Fender to CBS, he went to work for Music Man and paired up with the late great, Mr. Thunder Thumbs himself, Louis Johnson. Together they came up with a bass that had a more pronounced hi-
