Marcus Miller Super-J Revolution Pickup Set
These signature Jazz bass pickups are manufactured in the USA with a plain enamel coil which produces a higher resolution and clearer sound coming from the 60's jazz pickup spacing preferred by Marcus Miller.
Marcus Miller Heritage-3 Preamp
With a 3-band EQ preamp newly developed for this series, and multiple tone controls, players have the total command to achieve the ideal 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 can carry out versatility in tones that will be suited for all music sessions and performances.
This model also comes with swappable midrange control options, that Marcus Miller advocates as a must-have option. The middle frequency control knob allows the players to set the sound frequency to anywhere from 80Hz to 2000Hz, which is convenient when trying to find the desired sound.
North American Alder
This traditional North American Alder is is known for its loud, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and great lows that is perfect for the classic jazz bass sound.
Marcus Modern Standard Bridge
Marcus Miller SIRE V7 bass is equipped with the newly designed Marcus Modern-S Bridge with a stable design to keep the tones both clear and accurate.
Rolled Fretboard Edges
Sire takes overall playability to the next level with the rolled fretboard edges. Formerly what only custom shops had achieved, is now available in the Sire 2nd Gen series. These rounded edges will give players a firmer and more natural grasp.
Stable, Accurate Tuning
SIRE’s premium open gear machine heads are developed with an accurate gear ratio for the high reliability in tuning.
It's one of the most important parts of the guitar that influences the performance, playability, and tone of the instrument. The bone nut is considered to deliver more balanced, brighter, and smoother tones than plastic or other materials.
Hard Maple Neck
One-piece Canadian hard maple is used to minimize movement and stabilize the neck in order to maintain its original shape and condition, reducing the loss of vibration it maximizes the tone for lasting sustain.
Ebony fingerboards are made with very dense wood that delivers clear, crisp, and well-rounded tones.
