And you thought great quality only comes at a high price!
Crazy B, 03.10.2020
After a disastrous experience with a rival company who will dv, remain 2, nameless 47 I turned to Thomann and had a good look at these basses, saw everything on YouTube and decided to order one. The buying experience was fantastic, the delivery well communicated and the product arrived unharmed. What a fantastic moment, nicely set up, and the bass sounds and plays as well as any of my hand made basses right out of the box. Covid rehearsals have gone really well and I am a very happy bunny. Basses are personal choices, but you won’t go far wrong with one of these puppies! Enjoy.

Un instrumento de 10
CharlesWinter, 21.10.2020
Básicamente tienes un instrumento de la calidad que otras marcas de renombre fabrican y venden por mil y pico largos, a un precio muy competitivo, y de las mismas o mejores características. El bajo es muy bonito, se nota bien construido, y el sonido es muy bonito, y muy moldeable a través del previo.

Si tuviese que poner pegas, serían que la acción no vino tan baja como me habría gustado, aunque yo mismo lo ajusté con bastante facilidad y quedó a mi gusto fácilmente. Y por poner otra pega, diré que pesa bastante. Es normal que pese por las maderas que tiene, y de hecho en tema sonido, se nota mucho, diremos que el peso es un precio a pagar por el sonido. No obstante está equilibrado y si no vas a tocar muchas horas de pie, estarás a gusto.

En mi caso si que lo he usado para tocar muchas horas en escenarios, y el problema del peso lo resolví con una correa de calidad que distribuye mejor el peso en la espalda. El verdadero problema viene si el instrumento cabecea (el mástil pesa más que el cuerpo), pero eso con este estupendo bajo no sucede.

Muy recomendado.

Sehr preiswertes Klangwunder
FunkDoctor, 15.12.2018
Der «Sire Marcus Miller V9 Swamp Ash 5 String» ist nun, seit kurzer Zeit, der vierte E-Bass in meiner Sammlung. Der Sound dieses Instruments klingt so phänomenal, dass es sämtliche Tieftöner, die ich bereits besitze, einsam im Regen stehen lässt!
Jawoll und darunter befindet sich auch ein Original Fender Jazz-Bass und zudem edle Gerätschaften, die über das vierfache eines «Sire» gekostet haben?


Sound / Klang:

Frank Zappa sagte mal: Über Musik zu reden ist wie über Architektur zu tanzen.
Trotzdem will ich mal versuchen, diesen fantastischen Sound zu beschreiben. Der Bass entwickelt ein schier unglaubliches Klangspektrum! Ein enorm, weites Feld von Klangfarben wird damit produzierbar, die sich leicht in die unterschiedlichsten Musikstile einbauen lassen. Das reicht vom erdigen, drahtigen Blues & Rock, über Latin, Salsa, Samba nach Jazz, Walkin Bass, Balladen, Jaco-Sound oder Fusion bis zu aufbepumptem Funk im Slap-Stil!
Der eingebaute Pre-Amp (18V) ist das geniale Herzstück dieses Instruments und man muss betonen, dass Marcus Miller nicht bloss seinen prominenten Namen für «Sire» hingegeben hat, sondern; dass hier eine ausgeklügelte und raffinierte Technologie drin steckt, die kompromislos nach seiner anspruchsvollen Klangvorstellung ausgerichtet wurde.
Aber, wie gesagt, das Spektrum an Sounds dieser Serie ist so breitfächerig, dass auch Bassisten, die nicht zwingend wie Marcus klingen wollen, ihre persönliche Klangfarbe herauskitzeln werden.


Bespielbarkeit / Verarbeitung:

Der Hals ist sehr gut bespielbar, nichts bremst oder klebt, was auch daran liegt, dass er eine «satin finish» Oberfläche aufweist. Auch das Griffbrett aus Ebenholz ist fein geschliffen und fühlt sich sehr angenehm an. Der gesamte Hals ist exakt eingelassen, fest verschraubt und perfekt justiert. Die Mechaniken reagieren sanft und präzise und halten zuverlässig die Stimmung. Die Bridge ist sehr solide gebaut und sorgt mit den, durch den Korpus gezogenen, Saiten für ein hervorragendes Sustain. Die Saitenlage lässt sich gut in der Höhe verstellen, eine seitliche Justierung ist nicht vorgesehen. Mich stört das nicht besonders, weil ich die Abstände von Saite zu Saite (16mm), als gut bespielbar empfinde.
Der ganze Body ist tadellos verarbeitet, feinsäuberlich lackiert und die Decke zeigt eine wunderschöne Textur!
Einziges Manko: Der Bass ist leicht kopflastig und ziemlich schwer!


Positiv:

+ fantastischer Sound mit grossartiger Klangvielfalt

+ tadellose Elektronik und Mechanik

+ sorgfältige und solide Verarbeitung

+ ausgezeichnetes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis


Negativ:

- leicht kopflastig und relativ schwer

(Lässt sich aber mit einem breiten Gurt gut ausgleichen.)

Un bon choix
RELKNEP17, 24.01.2019
Utilisation dans un big band, donc plutôt jazz.
Habitué de la 4 cordes, je désirai acquérir une 5 cordes jazz bass de qualité car très fan du son fender. Pour un budget limité, j'ai choisi la V9 car elle me semblait la basse la plus proche des caractéristiques recherchées. Je n'ai pas été déçu : après quelques réglages (action plus basse et justesse) slap en passif un régal ! Il faut être précis au niveau des réglages sur l'électronique pour obtenir le son désiré. (Tout et possible)
Autre avantage le manche n'est pas trop large.
Inconvénients : R A S
