6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

S.U.B by Sterling Ray5 Rosewood Neck, Walnut Satin

Details
The S.U.B by Sterling Ray 5-String Bass is a relative of the Music Man Stingray 5 and is certainly recognisable with its curvaceous body and familiar oval pickguard shape. This guitar offers the extra low range that 5-strings provide, along with the exceptional Music Man Stingray playing experience at a more affordable price point. Crafted with a lightweight basswood body, the Ray5 offers a comfortable playing experience and a defined tone with great dynamics. For an even more versatile performance, the SBMM Humbucker and 2-Band Active Preamp give excellent tone shaping capabilities so that you can always find the perfect tone that you need. The satin finished maple neck enables smooth left hand transitions and provides clarity and brightness, while the rosewood fingerboard produces a snappy, tight attack. This is a classy instrument with excellent playability and tones, designed for the musician seeking the extra low range that 5 strings can offer.

Active SBMM Electronics

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.

Crafted With Basswood Body

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.

Smooth Maple Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

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.
