A luxury version of the jazz bass

The Sire V10 Tobacco Sunburst is a slightly finer version of the traditional 5-string jazz bass, but its finesse is by no means based solely on appearance. In the center of the wonderful trees is a roasted maple neck. Roasting the neck removes moisture from it and makes the neck better able to withstand changing conditions. When roasting, the neck also ages, so to speak, and starts to sound more open. The feel and sound are more reminiscent of an already plugged-in bass than a new bass. The sense of the played bass is also enhanced by the asymmetric shape of the neck: It is slightly flatter on the bass side than on the treble side. The asymmetric neck fits the hand like a glove.

The V10 bass has dynamic passive microphones and active electronics with an active/passive switch. In practice, this means that you can get a lot out of the bass: For more modern playing, you can use the active side that pushes the signal, and when a more traditional need arises, the passive side produces an honest vintage buzz. The Sire V10 is a versatile bass that is surprisingly good considering its price range. An excellent choice for a beginner or even a guitarist as a recording bass!
