marcusmiller-jazz-bass-img06

marcusmiller-jazz-bass-img08 Swamp Ash

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.

marcusmiller-jazz-bass-img09 North American Alder

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.

SOUND UPGRADE

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.

EASE OF PLAYABILITY

1 PIECE HARDMAPLE NECK

 

The neck is made with one-piece hard maple.The neck is made with Canadian hard maple.

With its hardness and strength it minimizes the movement and stabilizes the neck

to maintain the original shape and condition. Also the one-piece neck minimizes

the loss of vibration and maximizes the tone sustain and maintains the tone to lasts.

    Most importantly, it has that jazz bass sound with the ability to make the clarity punch and depth through the roof. The pre-amp in this bass is a monster. Construction and finish are very impressive, especially for a bass in this price range, it plays looks and feels like what would typically be a much more expensive bass. The fact that this type of instrument is available at this price puts high quality gear within reach for a lot more people, which is excellent. Good work!

    I have spent hours watching videos of people playing this bass and please listen to me when I say this… No video out there does this bass justice… This is one of the most comfortable playing best sounding basses I have ever put my hands on. The craftsmanship is spot on… Out of the box it was almost perfectly set up… Nice and low just like I like it.
    I don’t know how they are making money on this but I’m going to buy the m3 before they figure it out. If you are on this website then you are interested… Buy the bass you won’t regret it … promise.

    This bass caused me to get rid of all 4 of my other basses. This bass is amazing!!!! I have no desire to play any other bass. I have several other people played my bass then turned around and sold their bass to order a sire. Thiss bass is all you need.

    I have been playing my V7 for about three weeks now. Being a 30 year veteran bass player, and having owned some of the best basses produced I must say I am quite impressed with the quality and the playability of this instrument. My main two basses are my Warrior Dran Micheal 5 , and now my V7. Very warm and boomy when I need it and bright and funky when I want it to be. The preamp is spot on. I have played and still do play in very large venues and donstudio work as well and I can dial in any sound I need. Playing through my TC Electronics rh750 with my 2-10 &1-12 cabs I don’t think you could find better. Sure and Marcus, Great bass. Thank you.

    Received my V-7 Alder/Rosewood on October 12th via UPS. Package was completely intact. It came with a very nice gig bag and was very secure when I opened the box.

    I inspected the guitar for any blemishes and there were none to be found. I plugged it into my Bugera VT 2000 watt head and my Schroeder 2X12 Cabinet. The full-bodied rich tone that came out of this bass was AMAZING! I kept everything flat on the amp and just used the preamp on the Sire. The lows are fat, beefy and warm. The highs are just right for the massive slap tones that are desired. Just a very small adjustment of the preamp knobs gives a completely different sound that works for any situation. I had a studio session last week and the engineer came in and said that bass is the best I’ve heard in this studio. Another artist who just happened to be in another room heard me playing and came into my session to inquire about the fat sound of my Sire. He liked it so much that he asked me to play on his project. Not bad for a first time out with this bass. Because of the sound of this bass I had another gig before the first one was finished! I will be ordering several more basses to add to my collection. Thank you Marcus Miller and Sire for such an awesome product!

    I give it a five stars. The only reason because I’m a Marcus Miller fan. But he a excellent musician cares about quality instrument and sound. I watch him over the years to know how passionate he is about his gift. Thanks for putting a line of quality basses that are affordable. I will be ordering one.
