WHY WE CHOSE
THE ALL SOLID ROSEWOOD
The SIRE team has spent years perfecting acoustic guitar building and tuning to find the best sound. The conclusive result is that the solid rosewood construction delivers the most ideal acoustic guitar sound. We feel that the rosewood tone is easily the standard in all acoustic guitar sound.
Our result shows that solid rosewood construction delivers depth and superior tone than solid mahogany guitar. Some players might prefer the mahogany body but when tested vigorous and compared next to each other, the rosewood just delivered a better, all around acoustic sound.
Such result motivated us to build and offer all solid rosewood body guitar at the price of mahogany guitar. We came to realize why Martin D28 is the most widely loved acoustic and why it has become the industry standard acoustic guitar.
WE INCLUDED PREAMP SYSTEM WITH ALL ACOUSTIC
GUITARS AS A STANDARD PACKAGE.
All solid rosewood acoustic guitar has superb natural sound. But without proper internal amplification system, the sound cannot be transferred to PA system on stage without compromising the quality of the sound. Professional engineer has to amplify it using high quality microphones to deliver the natural tone of the guitar.
Doing that would be a difficult job, if not impossible. Especially when playing with a band. Playing in a small room might not require a preamp but when playing in live settings, having a system that can control the sound and deliver clear tone is absolutely crucial. Performing with a guitar in a band without preamp system would be nearly impossible without help and additional equipment.
AND OUR SEARCH CONTINUED.
We wanted to develop a preamp pickup system that would capture the beautiful natural sound of the acoustic guitar without drilling a large hole in the wood that would be damaging to the guitar and tone. We wanted to build a standalone outboard preamp system that can be mounted or detached for more flexibility and operation. Zebra7 Original.
Another approach was to build acoustic guitar with the absolute minimal pickup and preamp system that would work perfectly in live setting. Zebra7 SIB
ZEBRA 7 SIB FEATURES
– Minimal hole drilled on the side of the guitar for simple and none damaging onboard pickup system.

ZEBRA 7 SIB
As you might have guessed SIB stands for “simple is best” It features familiar three control knobs for sound control but each has unique functions making any tone possible.
WHY TWO PICKUP SYSTEM
Most people think about the under saddle piezo pickup when purchasing acoustic electric guitar. But single piezo pickup alone cannot capture all the tone and amplify the natural acoustic sound truly. This is why many professional players prefer the sound hole pickup.
Although the sound hole pickup has some advantages over the piezo, it cannot produce the acoustic sound that piezo can replicate.
KNOB 1 : PICKUP BLEND KNOB
Turned counterclockwise all the way would bring her internal mic level to 0 and the piezo pickup at constant maximum of level 10. When turned clockwise the mic level gain goes up, the piezo will be same at constant level 10. When turned all the way clockwise the mic level will be 10 and piezo pickup at constant level 10. Piezo pickup and mic pickup level will be as follows as the knob is turned clockwise. 10:0 10:1 10:2….. 10:8 10:9 10:10
KNOB 2 : VOLUME KNOB
The volume level controls the output of the mic and piezo pickup source together.
KNOB 3 : EQ SEARCHER
The only pickup functions that you can get from Zebra 7. When the knob us turned clockwise treble and mid level rises and bass level reduces. When the knob is turned counterclockwise the bass level rises and the treble level reduces. When you hear the tone change by operating the preamp the player will see the value and dynamic tone control that is possible with this feature. Volume level controls the output of the mic and piezo pickup source together.
