Amazing bass!

JSHB, 03.06.2018
I bought this bass to improve my playing/ear and to possibly use it in various bands. So far it has exceeded all of my expectations! It may even become my go-to bass after playing a 5 string for years. Playing fretless feels very natural and far less alien than I was expecting and this bass certainly helps make it more comfortable.

Pros:
- Superb build quality and required minimal set up out of the box.
- Feels very comfortable to play, both in terms of the feel of the neck and the weight of the instrument.
- Controls allow for a huge variety of sounds.
- Fret markers provide a bit of a safety net for playing live.
- Comes with flatwound strings already.

Cons:
- None! At this price point, I cannot fault this bass.
- Some people may not want the fret markers and gold standard might be to not need them but everyone makes mistakes so these really are very useful.

In short, this bass is fantastic and has made playing fretless far less daunting. I would highly recommend both Sire and playing fretless to anyone considering either.

good choice

20.12.2016
I state that as other tools and then how habits and terms of comparison, to be as fair as possible, I Fender P / J Deluxe, Fender Jazz FSR? 75, Music Man Sting Ray 2001 and Ibanez BTB 675 and a Mark Bass Big Bang as amplifier.
Without this premise, I tell you that there will come a large box Thomann packed with the usual care, which will contain within it the box with your Sire V7. Do not expect the care you have the more famous and expensive products, few protective films and few frills, here is spared by the material and everything costs and raises the price without adding real value to the product there? Are.
The overall quality of the product is good, well above the average of products in the same price range, the mechanics are very precise that hold the perfectly? Tuning, the handle paint and body are treated, the handle is much higher than the body where despite the black color, one can see the small imperfections of the wood.
A separate discussion deserve the controls which, while being accurate and fair bill, are a little? high relative to the body of the instrument and the volume is in an impractical position being in a split control, in any case taking place in full their work.
For what concerns the? Playability? ol? ergonomics, I can say that it is a very convenient and intuitive way down, not particularly heavy, with a handle very comfortable and fast full Fender Jazz style. The original equipment strings (D? Addario) are aligned with the good overall quality of the instrument. One notation, the body is slightly larger than a Fender Jazz, so if you have a hard case careful not ideal.
The e? Is a fundamental point of this tool that seems to be born, like many of his modern cousins, to be used only in active mode. The sound is very versatile and the pickups are well differentiated so you can space from Jaco style sounds to softer sounds and smooth. In passive mode you have, as in modern jazz, volume, tone and pickup balance. In active mode you add the bass, treble and two medium (medium high and medium low). Here the difference with other tools you feel and I have to say you can not always have a balanced sound, never too pumped, even when pushed to the maximum. The controls are not very sensitive, you must use good l? Amp to appreciate the full potential however it all works properly.
In conclusion, I can say that it is an excellent purchase, for many reasons, however, not substantial, it is not a product comparable to low more noble, but it is a tool that less than 500¤ by a more than satisfactory quality and It has a quality / price or best value for monay very very high. It is a very appealing for those approaches for the first time to a fretless bass and a very smart choice for those who, having already experienced, you want a reliable and powerful tool. The fact that it? Branded? Marcus Miller is a plus that meant that they could speak from the outset, a strategic choice but it should not detract from the absolute preciousness of the product.
