MARCUS HERITAGE-3 Preamp
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 SUPER-PJ REVOLUTION SET
Marcus Miller Super-PJ Revolution Pickup set is an upgraded pickup set that gives players that rich, powerful unique precision bass sound as well as the vintage jazz bass tone. In addition to the Fiber Bobbin and Alnico 5 magnets, this pick up is also made with US manufactured USA coil magnet wires.
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.
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.
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.
