A great thing to the super price!

02.11.2016
I always wanted to have a fretless bass and really did a lot of research. Most are relatively high-priced, or you do not know exactly how the quality is really. After I have looked both at Thomann and on the web with the producer Sire and also a really quite good review exactly to the Fretless on YouTube (see below), I ordered it and must say, it is a really good bass and it Makes a lot of fun to play him.
I play in different groups and can adjust the amount of different sounds by the active part of the bass. This is only a bit overwhelming and you sometimes wonder if it would not be easier, but once you have found your own favorites, everything is ready. All controls have an audible effect and the two rear active controls are really very effective. The midboost is definitely usable and gives many beautiful nuances to the sound. The last controller is however a quite hammer and with caution to enjoy. If you turn it on, you have to be careful not to cover the entire sound. After all, the device runs on two 9V blocks and you can see this really. I hardly use him.
The processing is from my point of view noble. The fingerboard is lacquered in a beautiful gloss and the sides that are pulled up can be played wonderfully in the slide. Just what you want, if you want to play fretless. You have to remember, however, that you should not be as strong as you can because the fingerboard can scratch. Bending now runs vertically, no more horizontally.
To the Fretless sound: Once you have noticed your own settings and the music you play, the fretless sound is beautifully soft and can be adjusted by the height controls. Tip: The video of Adam Dorn "Sire Marcus Miller V7 fretless bass demo" on YouTube or on the manufacturer's side help to get an impression before buying. Above all, the manufacturers page provides all sorts of useful information about the components.
I think it is definitely great that I got here a bass, the price is great, the processing really nothing to complain about and which sounds to my taste super and by its versatility is probably applicable in every music. Whether it is really necessary to give a bass with TWO 9V blocks so much power, I do not know ... I would not have needed it. But everyone must decide for themselves. However, the 9V block consumption is quite high.
I would buy it again and against this background also would also recommend to look at the other Sire basses, if you want a cheap bass.

Marcus Miller V7 Alder-4 Fretless BK: very satisfied

10.10.2016
Because of the good reviews and the pleasant price, I ordered the bass on suspicion, so without hearing and playing it before. I have been waiting for it for two months. I was not disappointed.

I am not a Fretless player and I need the lines, but I am not ashamed of them. Over the years I changed some Fretless basses for a few recordings: Warwick Corvette, Yamaha BB4, Ibanez SR500FL and Marcus Miller is now my favorite.

The tonal variety is more than sufficient, although I always look for my favorite setting and then keep it. The fretboard is lacquered, which is also the case with my Ibanez, which irritates me somewhat, but the Marcus Millar sounds with the flatwound strings very well and although I rather hear roundwound strings, I will leave the Flatwounds on it because the bass Also sings so well.

The 4-string is quite heavy, which affects the good sound and which does not bother me because I never have to play live and stand for long.

There is really nothing to complain about except that I would have to adjust the octave purity for the E- and G-string. In addition, I find it a pity that here as with many other Fretless basses the lateral bundle markings are not at the waist but between the virtual bundles to be seen. This is probably due to the fact that all the necks are only processed with the sides of the neckband before the fretboard is worked with bundles or without binding.

I would buy the bass again, but maybe as TS.
