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 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 jatoba 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.
