My name is MATHIEU LLOPART, I am a professional bassist from Paris, France. I started bass 20 years ago playing rock covers with my friends and then step by step after a hundred concerts with my rock band MODELO I decided to move to Paris to become a professional musician. Since then I made many concerts, tours and records, and right now I am on tour with one of the most popular French singer AMIR all around France and Europe. During my free time I also play with the band OK CORAL as a bassist and musical director. Besides I also work on my own project and I will probably release an EP before the end of 2017.

A friend of mine told me that a new brand called SIRE had been working in collaboration with Marcus Miller to release affordable basses. At that time I was thinking of buying a Jazz bass so I bought a V7 4 strings and a V7 5 strings on Thomann. At first I was impressed by their high quality, these instruments are extremely well finished for their prices, then I plugged them in my amp and the sound was awesome! I decided to bring my V7 on tour with AMIR and everyone was so happy with it that I finally kept it in my rig.

I am proud and honored to be the first French Sire Friend and I hope that it is just the beginning of a long story.

It is very hard to answer because the last song I compose is always better than the older ones.

Each tour is unique but I think that my most memorable concert was in Marseille with French singer KENDJI. The audience was so excited and shouted so loud that I did not hear a single note of what I was playing during the first three songs of the set. It was totally crazy!

I am very happy right now, I am on a big tour, I make concerts all around France and Europe and I feel lucky to make a living with my passion. I just hope that this would last as long as possible.

I think that it was in a pub with my first band in Mulhouse and I was terrified! Actually It took me some time to be relaxed on stage but thank God it is not the case anymore.

My words would be « GO and BUY one », I have many basses and the Sire basses are incredible for their prices. For sure you will not regret it!
