The new Ray Ross™ Bass Bridge is the world’s first saddle-less, retro-fit bass bridge, offering a unique and alternative concept in high quality, precision engineered bass guitar bridge designs for 4 and 5 string basses.
Constructed from solid naval brass and high-grade stainless steel, the new Ray Ross™ Bass Bridge, features individual tone-pins that eliminate the ‘brake angle’ – the ‘upward kink’ – of each string over conventional bridges, allowing straight string travel direct from the bridge to the nut.
On a standard bridge, downward force applied to the instrument from the string is restricted due to the saddles providing relief between the string and body. The Ray Ross™ negates this concept and applies nearly 100% of the string tension downward allowing the string to resonate freely, giving the cleanest possible path from your fingertips to your ears.
With each string’s ball-end fitting snug within the concave milled tone-pin, macro intonation accuracy and string height adjustments are all within two quick and easy movements, via lateral action-wheels that raise and lower the tone pin height and forward and backward travel.
These elevated tone pins create a fulcrum that exert a previously unheard amount of pressure on the bass guitar itself, allowing a vibrational note to body transfer that has never been achieved, until now. With each note ringing with undeniable clarity, the natural sustain and harmonics are off the charts.
Available for 4 string bass, and a 5 string version with 17mm or 19mm string spacing and a choice of finishes that include Chrome, Gold, Brass, Black and Black Nickel, the new Ray Ross™ Bass Bridge also offers ultimate mounting flexibility, with 7 screw holes including the spacing of Fender’s 5-hole design, making it a perfect retrofit for the multitude of Jazz and P-Bass style instruments on the market.
