Swamp Ash tonewood is known to produce a well-balanced tone. It is highly resonant and offers a delicate balance of pleasant highs, firm lows and a slightly scooped midrange which is excellent for slap playing. The characteristics of this would enable players to emulate Marcus Miller’s tone a step further.Solid Top With Quilted VeneerThe top plate of the body is finished with a solid maple top and quilted veneer that covers the swamp ash body. The solid maple top produces a rich, clear and vibrant tone. In addition, the sharp and luxurious wood pattern of the quilted veneer has improved the quality of the design.Rolled Fretboard EdgesWhat only custom shops can achieve, is now on the Sire 2nd Gen. These rounded edges will give users a firmer and more natural grasp compared to other typical fretboards.Marcus Super-J Revolution SetSire changed the Alnico Magnet’s magnetizing method to produce the similar aging sound of a 20-year-old Heavy Formvar Pickup and changed the coil to plain enamel and installed a program into a coil-winding machine, which enabled them to embody almost the same speed and winding crossover angle like the handmade winding. They decided to name this pickup technology “Revolution Pickup Technology.”Jazz bass type is the industry’s standard bass model with its signature vintage sound. This is an all-around bass that is suitable for fingering, slapping, and other techniques and styles of playing. With both a classic and modern feel and design, this new bass can produce the desired sound for all genres of music from soft to even strong metal grunge. Grab a great bass at a great price.
