Excellent, the knobs are easily replaced
FoxyInSoxy, 07.06.2020
The Sire V7 and P7 basses are famous for selling at £500 but being equal in quality to basses worth £1000 to £1500. My P7 really sits in the mix whereas my V7 cuts through the mix.

The design is very logical: one volume knob and one pickup blend knob rather than Fender's silly design with a volume knob for each pickup. So on the Sire, the blend can be adjusted without affecting the volume. Good.

The active/passive switch is awesome. The sound in passive mode has more detail, especially during the release phase of a note when the sound dies away, e.g. during a slide. But active mode is so useful. If there is unwanted noise at a gig, I can just flip the switch and immediately enter active mode at the same volume (that's important!), removing the unwanted noise in the signal chain.

On to this specific colour: If you want a pretty grain pattern, pay more for the Swamp Ash version. If you want to save money, go for this slightly uglier alder version. You can see a clear colour difference on mine where the different sections of wood have been joined.

The knobs can be replaced with 'Harley Benton Parts Dual Knobs CR' and 'Harley Benton Parts T-Style Knob Chrome' to prevent the cheap plastic dual knobs from sticking to each other.

Good Bass
HKBASS, 07.11.2019
I found this bass is exceptional good for a bassist. Sound good and enough sustain. the body is not heavy. But I prefer a bigger and better quality of knobs

Creí que vendría mejor acabado
STUDIO4 EMILIO, 29.04.2020
He tenido ya con este 3 bajos sire, un v3 1gen, me encantó su sonido y fabricación, compré un v7 1gen, genial también, un acabado perfecto, y me decidí por este p7 2gen, creyendo que las terminaciones Iban a ser perfectas como los demás, pues no, de sonido increíble, super bonito, super silencioso y una paleta de sonidos increíble, pero de acabados fatal, sobre todo en el mástil, en el puente han puesto muelles que se quedan sueltos,(tanto vale un muelle) los tornillos que sujetan el golpeador doblados y rayan, pero donde más coraje me dio es en los trastes y el embellecedor blanco del mástil, los trastes literalmente hacen daño en la mano, te la rayan y molestan, ni se han molestado en limarlos y el embellecedor mal pegado y mal cortado, viniendo de la 1gen han bajado mucho la cálidad, muy mal por parte de Sire, han criado fama y después se han echado a dormir, por cierto pone echo en indonesia.

Je possède une Sire V7 - 5 cordes Vintage 1ére génération qui est vraiment excellente pour le prix.
La P7 Alder 5 TS 2nd Gen est vraiment aussi excellente avec une finition supérieure. Acheté depuis 3 mois. Une moyenne de 6 concerts par mois sur de longues distances. Usage intensif
J’ai changé les potentiomètres d’origine que je trouve laids. L’instrument est livré correctement réglé. J’ai affiné l’action et la courbure du manche à mon jeu et changé le jeu de corde une fois celui d’origine usé.
Les réglages ne bougent pas et l’instrument gagne en rondeur. Le manche est facile à jouer. Légèrement plus épais que la V7 mais très agréable sans vernis. Les micros sont très bons. Je ne joue pas en position centrale car le son ne me plait pas vraiment. Ce qui m’intéresse dans cet instrument est essentiellement le micro précision. Plus puissant que le micro chevalet. Les micros 2nd Gen ont plus de grains que la 1nd Gen.
Le micro chevalet est meilleur que la 1nd Gen. Lorsque je bascule dessus je rajoute un peu de grave pour ajuster le volume. Je joue 1 quart le chevalet ouvert ou 1 quart le manche ouvert. Cette solution m’évite un son « nasillard » que je n’aime pas. Le préampli est toujours aussi performant à utiliser avec modération car l’Instrument est dans l’ensemble très homogène. Le si grave est un peu plus présent tout comme le sol aigu. Il faut gérer au doigt ou peut être resserrer la vis du micro.
Rien n’a reproché concernant la finition qui est très bonne. On peut distinguer une légère denture sur le contour du pickguard. Mauvais réglage machine de découpe je pense. Il faut vraiment mettre l’œil dessus. La couleur est superbe
L’inconvénient principal est l’équilibre : le manche fait rapidement basculer la basse.
Comme souvent sur les précisions avec un corps en aulne. Et les potentiomètres à changer éventuellement. Le jeu de corde d’origine est bon. Un instrument très beau et performant pour ce prix. Un micro précision bien réalisé. Tout comme le micro chevalet. On peut trouver tous les sons les plus connus avec cette basse. Mais pour un son Style Marcus Miller en slap mieux vaut prendre le modèle JBass
