Awesome bass for the money

Sergey Kondratyev, 09.10.2017
I am a guitar player, but I had to switch to bass when playing in band (as it often occurs).

This is my first bass, but that wasn't a spontaneous purchase. I saved up money for about a year deciding which JB-looking bass to buy, and finally I stopped on Sire V7.

I use it in home studio (playing and recording straight into the audio interface), on rehearsals and live. In all these situations it works and sounds great! I play with fingers 99% of the time. However it sounds great with pick and slapped, clean and distorted.

I have an experience playing Ibanez SR500, Fender Japan Aerodyne JB (PJ pickups) and what I have to say: to me it sounds better and plays better (because it's my bass :) ). Also other band members and listeners say this instrument sounds way cleaner and beefier. Many experienced bass players say it sounds like old JB, neither worse nor better, just the same.

Pros:
a) It sounds good. Jist like old Fender JB - it has both body and clarity.
b) It plays well. All the frets have nicely rolled edges. The neck back surface has glossy finish, i.e. it's lacquered. Somebody likes it, somebody not. To me it's just nice comfortable neck.
c) It's versatile. You can use it both in passive and active modes (not at the same time, of course). The preamp has two parameters for mid-frequency: the frequency itself and the gain, which gives you extra flexibility.
d) 18 Volts preamp. It can be VERY loud when you turn the knobs clockwise. Be careful. But every time you need an extra power it's always at your service. Also operating at 18 Volts provides increased headroom.
e) 2 ways of being stringed. You can string it both through body and through bridge - thanks to the bridge construction (see pictures).
f) Bone nut. Real bone, not plastic!
g) Good quality components (except one thing: see below). Bridge, tuners, nut, pickups - all is fine. The bass is super quiet, even in active mode (quiet preamp).
h) Special thanks to the truss rod adjustment located at the end of the neck heel. That makes truss rod adjustment very easy and comfortable. I wish all the manufacturers to make it like it's made here.

Cons:
a) The preamp compartment. When I removed the preamp plate I saw that all the electronic components (the potentiometers, the circuit board itself and the active/passive switch) are mounted (soldered) on the circuit board. The ponentiometers look weak and when they wear out it's a real problem how to replace them. It's not a super serious problem if you know how to use a soldering iron. But for unexperienced user it could be a pain... However, let's look at these potentiometers after year or two.
b) The metal plate which covers the preamp compartment. It's non-standard JB plate and it could be difficult to find a suitable plate (with a certain number of holes) if you want to replace it.
c) The pickguard. It's also non-standard. There is no ready-to-use pickguard on the market that will fit into this (mainly because of the holes). So if you wish to replace it, think about making a custom pickguard somewhere...
d) The active/passive switch. As soon as you insert the jack into the bass it starts to drain the batteries. Even if you play in passive mode most of the time it WILL drain your batteries. Some people (crazy enough like me) may modify the bass with a switch that disengages and saves the batteries. But show me that man who plays this awesome bass in passive mode :)

SUMMARY:
Despite these four facts about the preamp compartment, the plate, the active/passive modes and the pickguatd (maybe I'm crazy about it, who knows) it is very, VERY good and versatile bass for the money. I don't think you can find something better in this price range.

As always, HUGE thanks to Thomann for the exceptionally good service!
