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 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 DarkRay is every bit a Stingray Special with neodymium humbucking pickup, roasted maple neck, comfort contoured body, 22 stainless steel frets, and the familiar 4+1 headstock configuration.


THE DARKRAY FEATURES A ROASTED MAPLE NECK, EBONY FINGERBOARD WITH STAINLESS STEEL FRETS, AND MATTE BLACK HARDWARE.


DARKRAY 5 PREAMP

THE 2-BAND PREAMP INCLUDES VOLUME, TREBLE, AND BASS CONTROLS WITH A SEPARATE BLEND AND GAIN KNOB TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED TONE AND OUTPUT.


ROASTED NECK

THE DARKRAY 5 FEATURES A ROASTED MAPLE NECK, EBONY FINGERBOARD WITH STAINLESS STEEL FRETS, AND MATTE BLACK HARDWARE.



STINGRAY MEETS DARKGLASS

CUSTOM DARKGLASS® CLEAN 2-BAND ACTIVE PREAMP

The DarkRay is equipped with a new modern 2 Band preamp that Darkglass specifically designed. The preamp is extremely clean and quiet with adjustable volume, gain, bass, treble, and blend controls to achieve the desired tone.



ALPHA AND OMEGA

The Darkglass preamp offers 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 with no low-end loss. Via the 3-way lever switch, a bright color-coded LED ring is illuminated, signifying which mode the bass is in.

DARKRAY = STINGRAY

The DarkRay bass is every bit a Stingray Special with neodymium humbucking pickup, roasted maple neck, comfort contoured body, 22 stainless steel frets, all black hardware, and the familiar 3+1 headstock configuration.
