Great sound, great feel
Kaergbo, 30.10.2017
Being a proud owner of a Marcus Miller V7 bass, I didn't hesitate when the bigger better V9 was released. Upon ordering the V9, I wondered if it was actually worth its money, if I was maybe buying into the hype, etc. So I decided to buy another bass in the same price range, and make a comparison. This is of course a very subjective comparison, tailored towards my own playing style and preferences. The other bass I ordered was a Ibanez SR650. Please find my comparison (and final choice) below:


Looks

These two basses are very different in the looks department. Where the V9 sports a gorgeous flame maple top, binded neck, and chrome hardwear, the SR650 comes in all natural (dark) wood tones, with black hardwear. This is just personal preference, but I guess I'm a sucker for flamed maple, so to me, the V9 clearly wins in the looks department.


Build/Features

Through owning a V7, I was already familiar with the build of the V9, which is a Fender inspired Jazz bass. This particular instrument was finished perfectly. A beautiful maple neck, perfect fret work, everything just looks right. Compared to the SR650 though, a bit clunky. The SR650 is also immaculately built and set up, but is lighter, with a more contoured, slim body. The neck is noticably thinner and faster as well. On the whole, the SR650 is probably about 1 or 1,5 pound lighter.
Both basses have an active onboard pre-amp, with a three band equalizer.
A small advantage here goes to the V9, for having a sweepable mid control.


Sound

The most important part of the comparison. I plugged both basses into my Focusrite, into Logic, and played some clips on various settings (passive, active, different pickups, finger/pick). Afterwards I did blind A/B comparisons to decide what bass I liked better. In almost all clips, I blindly picked the Ibanez. It sounds more ballsy. It has less 'zing' than the V9, but but more 'pop'. More meat. And because I play primarily pop/rock, this just felt right, right away.
All in all, I'm very happy with the SR650. From a price/value standpoint, I would recommend getting the old V7 over the V9. Except if you can't resist a flamed maple top, that is ;)

Nothing to say about this bass, it is just perfect, the finishes are neat and the instrument is just beautiful. This bass offers a sound really interesting, and above all, versatile. The gameplay and also the rendezvous, in short, I could extend on thousands of lines but it would be useless, this bass is for the moment irreproachable!
