LIVING LEGEND AND HIS 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. We are happy that SIRE Marcus Miller basses are now available and anticipate more people to play and enjoy music.
CORE TECHNOLOGY FOR GOOD SOUND
SIRE preamp is a perfect example that represents our technology and philosophy integrated into our instruments. With multiple tone controls, you can have total command in finding and getting the tone you want. The use of 18v battery enables the player to attain unaltered natural sound with strong and powerful output. With 3 band EQ, the player can have versatility in sound that can be suited for all occasions of music sessions. All models come with option for active and passive setting. Even in the passive mode, volume, tone, pickup balancer is fully functional, giving the player more controls for the tone in any mode.
All models also come with sweepable midrange control option that Marcus Miller advocates as a must have option. The middle frequency control knob allows the player to set sound frequency anywhere between 200Hz~1kHz. This option will be very handy in finding the desired sound.
MARCUS STANDARD JAZZ BASS SET
The Marcus Standard Jazz Bass Set is a pickup made of magnets and coils and has already been tested for quality in a combination with a mahogany body since it is currently used in the M3 model.
For the sake of producing a good sound in the V3, it is constructed with coils and magnets that work best with mahogany wood.
ALL STEEL MATERIAL BRIDGE
MARCUS STANDARD BASS BRIDGE (WITH BODY THRU HOLE OPTION)
The V3 is equipped with Marcus Standard Bass Bridge. Just by looking at it, the bridge may look like a low-cost bridge made with Zinc plate or Zinc saddle. However, the bridge is made with a Steel saddle and Steel plate. Normally, introductory basses use a type of alloy called Zinc. Bass bridges made with Zinc is very easy to manufacture and inexpensive. However, these Zinc bridges may look good on the outside, but it is difficult to create a good bass sound. The V3 model’s Marcus Standard Bass Bridge may look like a simple basic bridge made with Zinc, but it is an All Steel Material Bridge.
The Marcus Standard Bass Bridge also has a Body Thru method that allows the bass string to be adjusted through the hole in the back of the body, allowing for a more tensioned set-up. This mechanism allows for a more tight, accurate, and stable tone.
HARD & CLEAR PAINT
For ordinary introductory basses, most basses are made with hard, less transparent paint. However, the highest-grade paint used in the V7 and M7 models are also used in the V3. When you see Sire basses in stores or other pricey instruments, you would normally experience a bright and cheerful feeling.
It would be a different feeling from the low-cost instruments. That different feeling comes from paint. The paint applied to the V3 is not only durable, but is also good for better sound.
STABLE AND ACCURATE TUNING
Tuning Gear: Sire Premium open gear Equipped with SIRE’s own premium open gear head machines developed with accurate gear ratio, the head machines are very reliable in turning.
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.
