R7 is an all-in-one packaged high end acoustic guitar. Built with premium solid spruce top, all solid rosewood back and sides, ebony fingerboard, abalone inlay, binding with abalone purfling and more, the SIRE R7 has all the high end features that can only be found in a few thousand dollar premium acoustic guitars.
If you tried a SIRE bass you already know about the quality of our instruments. The SIRE motto, “professional quality at insane price” is core value in everything we build. The SIRE acoustic/electric guitar is another example and representation of SIRE’s ambitious new release.
WHY WE CHOOSE THE ALL SOLID ROSEWOOD
The SIRE team has spent years perfecting acoustic guitar building and tuning to find the best sound. The conclusive result is that the solid rosewood construction delivers the most ideal acoustic guitar sound. We feel that the rosewood tone is easily the standard in all acoustic guitar sound.
Our result shows that solid rosewood construction delivers depth and superior tone than solid mahogany guitar. Some players might prefer the mahogany body but when tested vigorous and compared next to each other, the Rosewood just delivered a better, all around acoustic sound.
Such result motivated us to build and offer all solid rosewood body guitar at the price of mahogany guitar. We came to realize why Martin D28 is the most widely loved acoustic and why it has become the industry standard acoustic guitar.
WE INCLUDED PREAMP SYSTEM WITH ALL ACOUSTIC GUITARS AS A STANDARD
All solid rosewood acoustic guitar has superb natural sound. But without proper internal amplification system, the sound cannot be transferred to PA system on stage without compromising the quality of the sound. Professional engineer has to amplify it using high quality microphones to deliver the natural tone of the guitar.
Doing that would be a difficult job, if not impossible. Especially when playing with a band. Playing in a small room might not require a preamp but when playing in live settings, having a system that can control the sound and deliver clear tone is absolutely crucial. Performing with a guitar in a band without preamp system would be nearly impossible without help and additional equipment.
And our search continued. We wanted to develop a preamp pickup system that would capture the beautiful natural sound of the acoustic guitar without drilling a large hole in the wood that would be damaging to the guitar and tone. We wanted to build a standalone outboard preamp system that can be mounted or detached for more flexibility and operation. Zebra7 Original.
WHY REMOVABLE PICKUP SYSTEM
The zebra 7 pickup system was developed once we decided that SIRE all solid rosewood acoustic guitar would be the main and representative SIRE acoustic guitar. Most well-tuned high end acoustic guitars do not come with onboard preamp installed.
The reason is simple. No true acoustic guitar player would want to cut a large hole in the wood to have a preamp installed on the side of the guitar. That would not only be damaging to the guitar but compromise the sound quality as well. Retaining the guitar in its purist form is what most player’s desire for this reason, to keep it natural.
But without onboard preamp there is no way to amplify
the beautiful natural acoustic guitar sound unless a skilled engineer is there to mic the guitar on stage to amplify the sound properly. This would be unrealistic for most players.
To find a better solution, we developed a removable preamp system that can be used as an onboard preamp that does not require drilling a hole in the guitar. The preamp can be mounted and removed for ease of use. For one year and a half, we worked to develop a removable EQ preamp pickup system that can be used on needed basis.
For stage performance, the preamp can be attached for use and then can be removed when not being used at home. We finally have succeeded in development of the SIRE Zebra 7 preamp system that can do all that.
