Sire Marcus Miller M7 5 StringRegular price $1,349.00
Marcus Miller and Sire have been on a mission for several years to build the best quality bass at an unbelievable price, making it available to everyone. The result is a new generation of Marcus Miller bass models that have a fantastic sound and look, and are high quality but with an extraordinarily low price.
The Marcus Miller M7 2nd Generation is finished with a solid hard maple top, which is only found in premium guitars for a rich, vibrant, and clear tone. Premium Swamp Ash tone wood is usually found in higher priced instruments, which produces a well-balanced tone. It is highly resonant and offers a nice balance of pleasant highs, firm lows, and a slightly scooped midrange which is great for slap playing. The characteristics of this wood enable players to emulate Marcus Miller's tone one step further.
A top notch 3-band EQ preamp meets the needs of Marcus Miller's versatility covers various styles of music. The active/passive mode option, together with the Humbucker Pickup Set with individual setting options (single, humbucker, and serial-parallel) are the core technology for the best sound quality and tone versatility.
It's equipped with a newly designed heavy mass saddle bridge with a string-through body bridge mechanism that allows a tighter, more accurate, and more stable tone. Rounded fretboard edges will give users a firmer and more natural grasp compared to other typical fretboards.
The bridge is one of the key components in the bass sound since it is the connecting point for the strings and machine heads. The Marcus Miller M7 2nd Generation is equipped with a Marcus Miller custom Big Mass 2 Bridge. This bridge is built with a heavy mass saddle which transfers the string vibration to the body to generate a rich and fuller tone. The new Marcus Miller Bridge is a string-through body bridge mechanism that allows a tighter, more accurate, and stable tone.
