    Yes it certainly is! I'll have one arriving at the store in the next week or two if all goes well.

    There are 2 colors, Obsidian Black is available through dealers and Granite Stone is only available direct from EBMM.

    Designed in collaboration with world-renowned bass accessory manufacturer Darkglass Electronics, the DarkRay unlocks a whole new range of sonic capabilities.At the heart of every instrument is its tone: in this case, a new modern 2 Band EQ preamp was designed by Darkglass specifically for the DarkRay. This preamp offers three modes with very distinct and useful sounds: Clean, Alpha (distortion), and Omega (fuzz). Both distortion circuits are fully mixable via an onboard gain knob and blend control manipulated to the user’s preference. Astonishing clean, slight gain, or a brutal fuzz tone is obtainable, all with no low-end loss. A bright LED ring and the 3-way lever switch indicates which mode the bass is in.

    Full Specs:

    Since I don't use pedalboards, this new model is very appealing. While I enjoy simply plugging in & playing, sometimes it's nice adding a little grit-- so the Sansamp BDDI is employed. Having the option for overdrive right there on the bass would be even better in my situation.

    Actually, when I want to really rock out it's Bongo time! Maybe if/when MM does something like this with the Bongo I'd buy one.

    Really looking forward to seeing some of these in the world

    I saw and heard one of these today. The sales guy at GC ordered /bought one and it had just come in. He was wailing away on it. Interesting. Not for me, but interesting, and maybe it was just the way he was using it. It was pretty cool and the bass sounded as I would have hoped with it turned off. I did buy a leftover 2018 Stingray Special HH in Dropped Copper. Home run for me!

    I'm intrigued with this as well, but since I own a stingray classic already, as well as some other stingrays and bongos....just buy a darkglass pedal?

    If so, which one?

    I highly recommend the Alpha Omega, the regular version. I have that at the end of my chain as an always on with a B3K going into it. HUGE sound

    Got mine yesterday from Pete DuBaldo. I spent several hours on it trying out different things. This bass is killer. I never use effects when playing bass. Now I wish I had this bad boy many years ago as it would have really helped with my band and music. Plays great, sounds great, looks great, and I couldn't put it down. Gonna run it this weekend at band practice.
