Shape Your Sound With a 9-Volt Active Preamp

The Ray4's active 9-volt preamp puts you in command of your bass sound. Boost or cut the lows and highs to sit perfectly in the mix. Add some grit when you need to cut through. The preamp's active circuitry preserves your tone even with new strings or extended cable runs. Whether you want a percussive slap tone to lock in with the drummer or a smooth, round sound for melodic lines, the Ray4's preamp lets you dial in the right sound for the song.

Hear Every Nuance With the Humbucking Pickup

The Ray4's humbucking pickup accurately conveys your technique, from intricate fingerstyle lines to aggressive picking. Its focused midrange cuts through the band mix while retaining your low-end punch. The pickup's noise-free operation keeps your tone pure and articulate. You'll hear harmonics ring out and sustain bloom as you explore the Ray4's sonic possibilities. Every subtlety of your playing shines through.

Intonate Perfectly With the Fully Adjustable Bridge

The Ray4's heavy-duty bridge allows micro-adjustments for perfect intonation up and down the neck. The individual saddles let you set each string's length and angle just right. Combined with Ernie Ball's meticulous build quality, you can count on the Ray4 to stay in tune through the most demanding gigs. The bridge's solid construction provides a rigid platform for transferring string vibration into the body. You'll feel tighter low end and excellent note definition.

Built to Last for Left-Handed Players

The left-handed Ray4 gives left-handed players the same exceptional quality as Sterling by Music Man's standard models. Its smooth satin neck finish lets your hand glide freely for hours of comfortable playing. The lightweight Jabon body balances perfectly on a strap or sits easily on your leg.
