Peak performance. Expert clarity. That’s exactly what you get with the Sterling SUB Ray4 Bass HH MN. Because Sterling have taken every step to ensure it kicks out a booming bass tone of scintillating quality that punches through the mix with ease.
It’s fitted with a powerful 9V preamp, which is what gives the Ray4 its gigantic sound. It’s a sound that’s made even bigger. This model features two, low-noise ceramic humbuckers which produce an enormous sound while maintaining stunning clarity and articulation throughout your playing. Performance is effortless with the sleek maple fretboard and lightweight body, giving you a feeling of freedom and weightlessness on stage. And you can be sure that it’ll flourish in every gig due to its meticulous construction. Put simply, it’s everything a bass should be.
Booming bass sound that’s fuller than the rest
Make sure your basslines really get heard. The Sterling SUB Ray4 bass is expert at getting your playing right to the front of the mix. Two low-noise humbuckers at the bridge and neck deliver a distinctly full, diverse and, thick tone. And, well, the clue’s 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 maple neck, transitions between frets is totally effortless. It fits snug in the palm of your hand, eliminating the strain and fatigue that might hinder 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. This is built for gigs.
