Great bass

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 ;)

Beautiful success

gillesusetheforce, 24.10.2017
For those who know the V7, no surprise. Same quality, same playability.
Plus: the finish of the table is beautiful. In the package you will find a transparent half pickguard (for the neck pickup) with screws and a microphone cover. Personally, I find it too beautiful to dress and I play little pick. The varnish is top.
Plus plus: the ebony fingerboard. Contrasting visual comfort of rosewood and slamming approaching the maple.
Weight: same as 4.4kg
The sound: always as breathtaking but especially more dull than the v7. We hear less the metallic noise of the strings and the harmonics.
The preamp becomes more useful and more efficient, more suited to this configuration.
In bridge pickup mode we always have this good effect Jaco.
In two microphones mode without the mediums we have typical slap Marcus and
we can spit the neck pickup by adding bass for heavier rock.
By cons I hate these plastic buttons because we do not see the settings on. (one less star for quality)
The active / passive switch is better positioned.
Premium open gear mechanics are more stable than the first generation.
For summary: apart from the buttons, she has everything a great. Comfort of play, sound, finishes. The price-performance ratio is of course impressive.
Delivery and customer service always impeccable.
