The new "Dark Ray" StingRay in Obsidian Black!
Designed in collaboration with world-renowned bass accessory
manufacturer Darkglass Electronics, the DarkRay unlocks a whole new
range of sonic capabilities.At the heart of every instrument is its
tone: in this case, a new modern 2 Band EQ preamp was designed by
Darkglass specifically for the DarkRay. This preamp offers three modes
with very distinct and useful sounds: Clean, Alpha (distortion), and
Omega (fuzz). Both distortion circuits are fully mixable via an onboard
gain knob and blend control manipulated to the user’s preference.
Astonishing clean, slight gain, or a brutal fuzz tone is obtainable, all
with no low-end loss. A bright LED ring and the 3-way lever switch
indicates which mode the bass is in.
The all-new DarkRay is every bit a Stingray Special with neodymium humbucking pickup, roasted maple neck, comfort contoured body, 22 stainless steel frets, and the familiar 3+1 headstock configuration. Available in Obsidian Black.
StingRay meets DarkGlass
