Ernie Ball Music Man


The Ernie Ball Music Man DarkRay 5 5-string electric bass was designed in collaboration with world-renowned bass accessory manufacturer Darkglass Electronics, unlocking a whole new range of sonic capabilities. A modern 2-band EQ preamp was created by Darkglass specifically for the DarkRay, offering three modes with distinct sounds: Clean, Alpha (distortion) and Omega (fuzz). Both distortion circuits are fully mixable via an onboard Gain knob and Blend control manipulated to your preference. Astonishing clean, slight gain or a brutal fuzz tone are 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 5 is every bit a StingRay Special with a neodymium humbucking pickup, roasted maple neck, comfort contoured body, 22 stainless steel frets and the familiar 4-and-1 headstock configuration. Additional appointments to the DarkRay include an ebony fingerboard with dot inlays, select hardwood body and custom Music Man tuners. Comes with a custom Mono case.
