MARCUS HERITAGE-3 Preamp
[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.
All models also come 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 between 80Hz~2,000Hz. This option will be very handy when trying to find the desired sound
MARCUS PURE-H REVOLUTION SET
The Marcus Miller Pure-H Humbucker (MMPH set) is a humbucker pickup set made with US Enamel coil. This humbucker-type pickup is a pickup set with a strong output that gives a punchy and solid mid-range sound. Marcus Pure-H humbucker Pickups feature a higher resolution and clearer sound.We have been collaborating with Marcus Miller to tailor the best sound balance and it will be introduced in the 2nd Gen series. The exterior of the pickup has also been upgraded as it is now embossed with a logo.
ROLLED FRETBOARD EDGES
[TRUE CUSTOM SHOP FEATURE]
We have taken the overall playability to the next level with the ROLLED FRETBOARD EDGES.What only custom shops can achieve, is now available in the Sire 2nd Gen series. These rounded edges will give players a firmer and more natural grasp, compared to the typical fretboards.We were well aware of the difficulties we would face in our ambition to apply the rolled fretboard edges in a mass production factory. Together with the production team, we worked tirelessly to make this theory a reality.This was quite a challenge, almost an impossible mission.We tried making several adjustments to the production process and even introduced a new machine. Since our Sire basses also have bindings, this made it exceptionally challenging, way beyond our imaginations. But eventually, we found the answers and we are ecstatic to present the Rolled Fretboard Edges in all our 2nd Generation models.
DOUBLE CARBON FIBER REINFORCEMENT ROD
– APPLIES ONLY TO 5 STRING NECKS
Sire’s 5 string bass guitars are made with Double Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Rods. 5 string bass guitars tend to have weak neck binding structures due to strong string tensions. For this reason, many high-end 5 string basses are made with Carbon Rods. Therefore, to maintain neck stiffness and stability, two carbon rods are applied to all Sire’s 5 string bass guitars. We call this Double Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Rod.
NEW MARCUS MILLER MODERN BASS TYPE
With both 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. For an added special touch of detail, the M2 truss rod cover and black plate is also made with real wood for a premium look and feel.
INDONESIAN MAHOGANY / CANADIAN HARD MAPLE
The M7 is built with solid hard maple top as would all premium guitars. The solid top produces a rich, vibrant and clear tone compared to a veneer top.
Premium Swamp Ash tone wood is usually found in higher priced instruments. Swamp Ash tone wood is known to produce a well-balanced tone. It is highly resonant and offers a nice balance of pleasant highs, firm lows, and a slightly scooped midrange which is great for slap playing.The characteristics of this wood enable players to emulate Marcus Miller’s tone a step further.
NORTH AMERICAN ALDER
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.
STABLE AND ACCURATE SOUND WAVE TRANSFERMARCUS MILLER CUSTOM BIG MASS 2 BRIDGE(String-Thru Body Option Bridge)
The bridge is one of the key components in the bass sound since it is the connecting point for the strings and machine heads. SIRE Marcus Miller M7 is equipped with a Marcus Miller custom Big Mass 2 Bridge. This bridge is built with a heavy mass saddle which transfers the string vibration to the body to generate a rich and fuller tone. The new Marcus Miller Bridge is a string-through body bridge mechanism that allows a tighter, more accurate, and stable tone.
STABLE AND ACCURATE TUNING
Tuning Gear : Sire Basic Die casting Gear
Equipped with SIRE’s own diecasting gear machine heads developed with accurate gear ratio, the machine heads are very reliable in tuning.
The 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 either improve or degrade the sound. Although the bone nut is more costly and harder to work with, it is considered to deliver more balanced, clearer and smoother tones than plastic or other materials.
EASE OF PLAYABILITY
1 PIECE HARD MAPLE NECK
The neck is made with one-piece Canadian hard maple. The hardness and strength of the hard maple minimizes the movement and stabilizes the neck to maintain its original shape and condition. The one-piece neck also minimizes the loss of vibration and maximizes the tone sustainability for a lasting tone.
Ebony fingerboards are made with very dense wood that delivers clear, crisp, and well-rounded tones.
The battery insertion compartment has changed from a plastic cover to an Ash wood battery cover for longer lasting durability and aesthetic upgrade.
