A GEM of a Bass

05.10.2016
The weight of this Bass is amazing. 8lbs..so easy to hold. Stunning build quality. The tone is amazingly versatile.
These basses are fantastic right out of the box!
All I can say is if you are having doubts...don't.

A monster of sound, quality ...

15.10.2016
Sire, I never thought you could make a hit like this, on such a tight budget .... What can we say, except that we have everything for almost nothing?

I bought this bass to start ... Yes, I put the price, and I prefer to pay a little more than what usually beginners like me, A comfortable instrument to play, which makes me want to use it ... And Sire has perfectly succeeded this tour de force ...

The materials are noble (here alder), the quality of workmanship is impeccable (when I received the bass, there were still some wood chips everywhere: just to blow on it, and it was leaving, haha! ). A tiny "snag" on the handle, but at the top, nothing serious, nothing very visible, unless really we want to pay attention to this ...
The painting (very successful, moreover) is covered with a nitrocellulose varnish; The wood ages better but pay attention to the supports with rubber, plastic, however, as they cause a reaction with the varnish, and try the parts of the bass in contact with. The sensations of gliding and play are very very pleasant, for what I could compare with a Squier and a Mexican Fender (the feeling of gliding on the latter was about the same as on the m7).

In addition, I had the bass appraised by a bassist friend, who was very surprised at the quality of manufacture and rendering both aesthetic and sound, this bass!
Oh yes, because I had forgotten that, like any sensible musician, a question has kept you worried since you started reading my evaluation: AND SOUND ???? HOW IS HE???



I arrive there. Understand that this bass is, in my opinion, very versatile: you can do a lot of things with, and why, then, are you going to ask me? For several things.
First of all, the active / passive switch does a lot of things ... In this we can play well-punched rock, I would go so far as to say good heavy metal, that kind of thing, going through the bossa , Latin, good blues, jazz ... BRIEF! Full full of styles will be delighted to hear their bass lines played by this instrument.
The second reason that explains the versatility of this bass is the presence of humbuckers that have rather interesting characteristics, which not all humbuckers have. Indeed, each humbucker can be activated according to 3 different modes, which I describe you roughly, and by means of research on the internet:
- Single coil: as on a jazz bass. If you set the two humbuckers to single coil, you'll get a sound that will look like a bass jazz, and it works pretty well, even!
- Serie: its less wide, with a bump in the medium spectrum (not too much anyway) and big output level.
- Microphones in parallel: its wider, but attenuated mediums, output level less than in series.

And what is very interesting with this bass is that both microphones are managed independently. So you can perfectly play with the bridge pickup in parallel, and the microphone neck in series, or single coil! This makes it possible to customize its sound, in addition to everything else. Moreover, this choice of microphones works, whether the bass is active or passive!

What else can I say? A general volume control, tone, selection of pickups (more towards the neck, or more towards the easel). All these settings work as passive and active.

And finally, 3 other rheostats, dedicated to the active mode: one to increase the treble, another (double) which includes a middle setting, and in addition a middle boost, and finally a last one, which is a bass boost ...


The instrument is complete, pleasant to play, sounds very very impressive sounds (I play on a good stereo, the sound is already impeccable, while I have not yet my amp), it has the mouth, , You can only go for an instrument of this type!





Thomann, however, has several reasons:

- Thomann proposed to be able to control the instruments, well in advance, what I did to be sure to get my bass ... However here it is ... After a month and a half after my order, a Once the bass arrived, my transaction had time to expire: this seems to me a limit, when one is European leader of the sale of musical instruments that can be proposed to order articles, then That we will clearly not be able to avoid an expiration of payment, thus causing the purchaser a lot of steps (including a call from the hotline, for my part), to solve the problem. But well, my problem was solved, which is already very good: it was not just to be in a hurry!
- Sire brand a bit more serious: the brand Sire always sells its basses delivered with a cover of rather good quality (watch American videos on youtube, you will see) ... Thomann opens the packages, removes the covers, Guard and resell them, regardless of the bass ... I find this rather dishonest, especially when we know that the policy of Sire is to equip the musicians as much as possible for a minimum price possible ...
