Sire basses have become best-sellers worldwide, and for good reason. Collaboratively designed with bass virtuoso Marcus Miller, Sire instruments are becoming acclaimed for their beauty, luxurious playability, impeccable build quality, premium features and relative affordability. Able to keep up with the demands of professional working musicians, Sire basses outclass almost anything in their price bracket.
The P10 is one of Sire's top-of-the range offerings. Boasting a raft of best-in-class hardware and electronic appointments, the woods used for this instrument are also key to its high-end feel and sound; not to mention its stunning aesthetics!
The foundation of the Sire P10 is its Alder body. Used on some of the earliest electric guitars and basses on the market, it’s a natural choice for a classic-style instrument. Expect a neutral tone with slightly accentuated upper mids. A Solid Flamed Maple top adds more top-end sparkle, ensuring the P10’s tonal response is crystal-clear and able to penetrate through any mix.
The C-shaped neck is comprised of a stunning piece of Roasted Flame Maple. Known for its caramel hue and distinctive stripes, it also offers increased stability and a lightweight feel. Expect crisp, dense tones with plenty of sustain to boot. Rolled fingerboard edges and the unique asymmetrical neck shape provide a smoother feel and increased support respectively, enhancing this bass' playability.
Versatile Electronics & High-Quality Hardware
Sire basses are known for projecting sounds that far outweigh their modest price-points, and the P10 is no exception. Marcus Premium Revolution active pickups feature US-made coils, resulting in that classic American sound that has defined so many records. Want to go for more of a passive pickup sound? No problem, just use the toggle switch to flick between active and passive modes.
Couple the versatile P/J pickup configuration with Sire’s incredible Heritage-3 preamp system, and you’ve got unprecedented control over your sound. This includes a sweepable middle frequency control for finding the instrument's tonal sweet-spot, akin to the flexible EQ you'd find on a high-end mixing console! But even with this sophisticated built-in preamp, the P10’s core sound is unmistakably clear and punchy.
Additional appointments include Sire’s Premium Open Gear tuners and their popular Heavy Mass Standard bridge. The latter is based on Miller’s favoured jazz-style bridge, and its extra-chunky saddles offer a rich tone with excellent tuning accuracy, sustain and strength.
