Sterling by Music Man SUB RAY4
The SUB Series StingRay RAY4 is the latest addition to the hugely popular SUB Series line from Sterling. This bass is an evolution of the Sterling SUB series maintaining the attention to detail and build quality of the previous models whilst catering to what many bass players expect in their modern instruments at an affordable price point.
Compared to its predecessor, the RAY4 boasts the upgrade of a Sterling by MusicMan designed low noise humbucking pickup that when partnered with the onboard active pre amp provides the player with a versatile foundation to find their sound. The ceramic humbucker used in the RAY4 creates a stronger magnetic field to feed the 9v onboard active preamp which is what gives this bass the iconic Stingray growl. The single humbucker in the bridge position offers a punchy sound with clarity and bite.
Keeping in line with previous models in the SUB series, Sterling have continued to use the 2 Band active EQ which gives the player the freedom to sculpt their tone. The active pre amp has controls for volume, bass, and treble which offer maximum flexibility in finding your sound. By utilising the full cut & boost of bass & treble frequencies, the wide range of tones you can create will guarantee you will find your sound for any musical situation.
The RAY4 is a formidable bass for beginners or to add to your live or recording set up!
Booming bass sound that's fuller than the rest
Make sure your basslines really get heard. The Sterling SUB Ray4 bass is an expert at getting your playing right to the front of the mix. A low-noise humbucker at the bridge delivers a distinctly full, thick tone. And, well, there's a clue there in the name: low-noise. So every note you play will benefit from sparkling clarity, accuracy, and definition.
That's not all, though. With an active preamp on-board, you get a noticeably bigger sound than what you get from passive basses. Powered by a 9-volt battery, the preamp acts as an extra power source for the bass, giving your signal additional power and making sure that it's full and crisp - even when travelling through long lengths of cable. So thanks to this, you really do get the best possible bass sound out of your amp.
Elegant feel, elite performance
Any serious bass player knows the importance of comfortable playability. And the Sterling SUB Ray4 ensures you can play without restriction for endless practice and performance. Equipped with an ultra-smooth hard maple neck, transitions between frets is totally effortless. It fits snug in the palm of your hand, eliminating strain and fatigue from hindering your performance. Watch your hand glide across the sleek maple fretboard, offering lightning-quick sliding and position changes. Because, in order to truly focus on you're playing, performance needs to be prime.
Tough and road-ready
This is one brilliant bass that's built to last. Constructed from top quality tonewoods, Sterling have really gone to town in ensuring the SUB Ray4 is ready for the road. A tough basswood body is incredibly durable, while a 6-bolt neck attachment makes for a sturdy construction that's able to withstand all of the bumps and knocks an instrument might encounter during life on tour.
