We`re still stunned at the store at the comfort level of these Sire basses with the rolled fretboard edges. Soundwise this one is super versatile; blend pots, active passive switch etcetera...
The Sire M5 is an upgraded modern bass in several layers; starting from the body to its neck for more energetic bass slapping, the Marcus preferred- hardware and electronics ready for any playing style, and its modern look and feel suitable in the Z generation.
- One may easily distinguish the powerful and intense sound produced by the signature Marcus Pure-H revolution pickup and preamp installed in the Sire M5.
- The contemporary body and neck of the SIRE M5 consist of a modern bass shape, 5 piece wood for more stability paired with ebony fingerboard and rolled fretboard edges to sum up its smoothness and comfort features.
