Sterling wants you to know:

Introducing the DarkRay, an innovative StingRay model designed in collaboration with renowned bass equipment company, Darkglass Electronics. Our custom Darkglass® 2-band active preamp offers three modes: Clean (Preamp-only), Alpha (Distortion), and Omega (Fuzz), all without the hassle of plugging into a pedalboard. Switch between these circuits effortlessly with an eye-catching LED ring and 3-way selector. You’ll unlock total tonal control via volume, treble, and bass adjustments, along with onboard gain and blend knobs for customized distortion. A roasted maple neck and ebony fingerboard round out the modern design.
