A range of sonic possibilities in one bass.

Designed in conjunction with world-renowned bass accessory manufacturer Darkglass Electronics, this new four-string offers a whole new range of sonic capabilities all in one bass.

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 and two highly regarded drive circuits, Alpha (tight 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 brutal fuzz tones, and everything in between is obtainable, all with no low-end loss. A bright LED ring and the 3-way lever switch signifies which mode the bass is in.

Despite the exciting new preamp tonal offerings, the 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.
