Sire Unveil Acoustic Guitar Range

Sire, the team behind the incredible Marcus Miller bass range, have unveiled their own range of acoustic guitars. And much like their bass guitars, these acoustics look set to make waves!

The Sire acoustics revolve around two designs: the R3 range and the R7 range. The former is the more affordable option, and the latter offers more premium features. As you might expect from Sire, both models boast cutting-edge design and specs that far outweigh their respective price points. Competitively priced, world-class features and modern looks – you can’t go wrong.

The Zebra SIB Preamp

The Zebra SIB (standing for Simple Is Best) aims to combine the best of both worlds: a piezo under saddle pickup and an internal mic. 3 intuitive controls allow you to take this combination and make it your own: pickup blend (controlling the level of the microphone), volume, and EQ searcher. The latter acts as a mid-contour control, ranging from accentuated bass to boosted treble and mid – it’s up to you to find your sweet spot!

The SIB system has been specifically voiced, in terms of pickup and preamp, to suit acoustic players. This means a smooth but dynamic response, perfect for fingerpickers, singer-songwriters and ballad strummers alike.

The Zebra 7 Preamp

The idea behind this unique preamp design is total versatility and control over your sound and setup. It's voiced with modern acoustic tone in mind; a healthy midrange emphasis perfect for cutting through a band mix with clarity!

You get 3 main features: a built-in piezo pickup, a removable soundhole pickup, and a detachable/mountable outboard preamp. The detachable aspect allows you to easily remove the Zebra 7 Original system for home use or storage – but when the time comes, you can have it up and running in less than 30 seconds. This makes everything from studio sessions to lengthy gigs a breeze. To top it off, you’ve got 7 neat controls that provide you with absolute control over your sound (see specs below), including a piezo/microphone blend control.

About Sire

Sire began their journey in Korea in the late ‘90s. A group of friends set about making their own instruments after becoming frustrated with rising prices. After much hard work, research and determination, their instruments turned out a lot better than they expect – so good, in fact, that they started to attract the attention of other musicians. Combining excellent quality with affordable prices seemed to be a winning formula.

As demand grew in Korea, founder Kyle Kim saw an opportunity. He began seeking international expansion, but it found it difficult to break into the market due to tough competition. He set up Sire USA in Los Angeles, and began contacting influential artists for help. It was at this point, they crossed paths with Marcus Miller, a living legend in the bass world. Kim’s vision resonated with Miller, and led to highly successful design collaboration. The Marcus Miller line of basses from Sire were an international success. Now, Sire are looking to the horizon for their next adventure – onward and upward!
