Patent No: US D849, 830S

 

The Ray Ramírez Rumba Bass is the result of our years of research and development and the experience working with the finest professional bassists local and around the world. The  innovative and patented “Rumba Bass” offers the versatility of an instrument with a very lightweight body and the addition of a "Headless" neck design to make a very easy travel.

The composite fiberglass body construction offers stability in all weather conditions and at the same time light weight for easy travel.

The thoughtfully designed Side Rest attachment, helps support the instrument at a comfortable and relax distance when playing. The Side Rest attachment can be easily removed once you have finished playing to reduce instrument size in the gig bag.

The headless neck design the with its undersized and slim bass body design offers an alternative to high flying rates when travelling to other countries with your Bass. This instrument can fit very well in the overhead compartment or closet in many airplanes, trains, cruises and more.
