In my ever-growing love affair with SBMM, I decided to pick up a S.U.B. Ray4 in black/maple....here it is next to my Ray34CA
Heres the problem, I like the SUB better than the Ray34ca...am I mad? Cheap? Poor taste? What is wrong withe me???!!??
Pros of SUB
2. body curves
3. maple board
4. More punch or snarl
6. notched eq
7. eq more like a "modern ray"
Pros of RayCa
1. It's green
Cons of RayCA
1. Hate the 2-band eq and the no notch knobs, my OCD needs that midpoint, that knowing of where it is
Both have brand new strings on them, both played through same amps.
I used to have a Ray34 (the 3band) and looking back I think I preferred the tone of that one more as well.
I think i'm commiting TB heresy here by preferring a cheaper bass, and preferring the 3band eq to the 2band ray eq....the shame.
So now what do I do? Talk some frakin sense into me.
