Loaded with a high output SBMM Humbucking Pickup, the Ray5 produces loud yet clear tones with plenty of on-board tone shaping options. The pickup and 9V active preamp work perfectly to preserve the natural sound of the bass, whilst offering a platform for you to sculpt the tone to exactly how you like it. The controls include volume and high/low cut and boost, enabling you to find your own signature sound.
The basswood body means that the Ray5 is lightweight and is easy to rock with during those long gig nights or practice sessions. The tone of the Ray5 offers good dynamics and excellent definition; perfect for creating a versatile and defined performance. The tone produced by the basswood is not too bright yet not too warm, and is ideal for players who prefer to use their on-board preamp and amplifier-controls to sculpt their sound rather than relying entirely on the characteristics of the tonewood.
The Ray5 features a smooth maple neck which enables fast and comfortable playing. The smooth feel of the maple is complemented with the silky touch of the satin finish which looks and plays great. The maple neck yields bright and twangy tones with amazing clarity while the rosewood fingerboard offers tightness with snappy attack. The bolt-on neck offers excellent strength which helps maintain tuning stability so you don't have that worry whilst you are rocking out hard.
