Crafted With The Guidance Of A Master Player - The Sire Marcus Miller V7 Alder (2nd Gen) 5 String Bass
Marcus Miller and SIRE wants to see everyone enjoying and playing music. To make this happen, Marcus Miller and SIRE have been on a mission for past several years to build the best quality bass at a price that is unheard of and make it available to everyone.
The result is a new line of Marcus Miller bass models that are awesome sounding, fantastic looking, and high quality but extraordinarily low priced.
CORE TECHNOLOGY FOR EXCELLENT SOUND
Sire’s unique preamp system is a perfect example that represents our technology and philosophy that is integrated into our instruments. With multiple tone controls, players have total command to achieve the perfect tone they desire. The use of 18v batteries enables the player to attain unaltered natural sounds with strong and powerful outputs. With the 3-band EQ, players are able to carry out versatility in sounds that will be suited for all music sessions and performances. All models are built with the option of both active and passive modes. Even in the passive mode, the volume, tone, and pickup balancer are fully functional, giving the players more control of the tone in any mode.
JAZZ BASS TYPE
Jazz bass type is the industry’s standard bass model with its signature vintage sound. This is an all-around bass that is suitable for fingering, slapping, and other techniques and styles of playing. With both a classic and modern feel and design, this new bass can produce the desired sound for all genres of music from soft to even strong metal grunge.
NORTH AMERICAN ALDER BODY & EBONY FINGERBOARD
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. By employing the Ebony fingerboard, Sire has upgraded the quality of the instrument to the next level.
MARCUS HEAVY MASS STANDARD BRIDGE
Marcus Miller SIRE V7 bass is equipped with the newly designed Marcus Heavy Mass Standard Bridge which was specially developed at the request of Marcus Miller. This bridge has characteristics of a vintage jazz bass but with heavy mass saddles, giving the bass a rich and punchy sound. The new Marcus Heavy Mass Standard Bridge is a string-through body bridge mechanism that allows a tighter, more accurate, and stable tone.
NORTH AMERICAN ALDER BODY, EBONY FINGERBOARD
Built with high-quality tone wood that is not common in this price range. By employing an Ebony fingerboard, Sire has upgraded the quality of the instrument to the next level.
