With the toggle switch active/passive mode is easily accessible. Using the two mini toggle switch you can switch the front and rear humbucker pickups into single or humbucker mode conveniently. And also conveniently switch from serial-parallel setting.
In the humbucker series mode strong and punchy tone can be produced than in the passive mode. In the humbucker parallel mode more smooth and brighter sound is produced which is ideal for pop and soft music. In the single pickup mode the setting would be closer to the Jazz bass but with the M7s smaller body than the V7, it produces a unique sound of its own.

BODY MATERIAL-SWAMP ASH/NORTH AMERICAN ALDER+SOLID HARD MAPLE TOP
The M7 is built with solid hard maple top as would all premium guitars would be built with. The solid top produces rich, vibrant and clear tone than a veneer top.
Premium swamp ash tone wood is usually found in higher priced instruments. Swamp ash tone wood is known to produce a well balanced tone. It is highly resonant and offers a nice balance of pleasant highs, firm lows, and a slightly scooped midrange which is great for slap playing. The characteristics of this wood enable players to emulate Marcus Miller’s tone a step further.
A popular choice for most bass guitars is the North American Alder. Other basses at this price range commonly use Basswood or Agathis tone wood but Sire Guitars chooses the traditional North American Alder which is known for its strong clear full- bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows that is perfect for the traditional jazz bass sound.
Stable and accurate sound wave transfer
Marcus Miller Custom Big Mass 2 bridge (string-thru body Option Bridge)
The bridge has much impact on the bass sound because it is the other connecting point for the strings from head machines. SIRE Marcus Miller M7 is equipped with Marcus Miller custom big mass 2 bridge. This bridge is built with heavy mass saddle which transfers the string vibration to the body to generate rich and full tone. This bridge also has body thru option where the strings are inserted from back side of the body giving it more tight and stability and vibrant tone.

Nut is one of the most important parts of the guitar that influences the performance, playability, and tone of the instrument. Depending on the quality of the material and elasticity, the nut can improve the sound or degrade the sound. Although bone nut is more costly and harder to work with, it is considered to deliver more balanced, clearer and smoother tone than plastic or eurite material.
