Marcus Miller and SIRE wishes to see everyone enjoying and playing music.To make this happen, Marcus Miller and SIRE have been on a mission for the past several years to build the best quality bass at an unbelievable price, making it available to everyone.
The result is a new line of Marcus Miller bass models that have an amazing sound, fantastic new look, and are high quality but with an extraordinary low price.
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.
PRECISION BASS TYPE
The Precision Bass is one of the oldest jazz bass types with one of the oldest styles. This versatile bass features a vibrant and robust sound giving players a unique experience.
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 P7 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.
This bass has become my primary bass. I prefer playing it over my more expensive basses. Its has an incredible voice Controls are very user friendly. It gives me pure joy to play. I also appreciate the call and service at Chuck Levin's. I was very surprised and please that they asked my preference. I would definitly recommend both.
