    If you play a Peavey, talk about it here.

    I played a Peavey Foundation for almost ten years, before I bought a six string Ibanez. The Foundation is currently loaned out to somebody who can't afford their own bass.

    I now play a Peavey Cirrus 6 string. Great sounding, great looking bass that costs hundreds less than comparable quality big name sixes.

    I once played (Can I still be in the club?) a Peavey Cirrus 6 also. It was an amazing bass with great tone and workmanship. Uh, forgot I owned a Peavey Millennium 5 for awhile. Another very nice bass but I traded it for a Pedulla Rapture which I eventually sold too. Both great basses. The Cirrus was unbelieveable. I need to pick up a Cirrus 5. Great stuff and I always recommend them.

    I have a lowly Peavy Milestone II. It does play decent and has a fair sound. A Cirrus it aint.

    I am about to change the pickups to EMG selects, maybe that will perk it up.

    I have two Peaveys---a Foundation and a T-40. I love them....especially the Foundation, which is quite the player. My back can't handle taking tje T-40 out on gigs.

    My standards are pretty high as I own two USA Laklands: a Deluxe 55-94 and a Bob Glaub (serial # 007).

    I have a buddy that just traded for a Rudy Sarzo Peavey. I think he got it to use as a backup, but I have a feeling it will turn into in main bass soon.

    I have two and I love 'em. G-Bass strung with flatwounds and action down low. I've had lotsa rounds on it but I'm currently enjoying the slick feel of the whole setup this way. Also a Millennium 5- candy apple red, matching headstock, birdseye maple neck/board. A terrific bass that probably a lot of people would buy if they tried one. Better B string than the "popular" 5 string that everybody owns...and much more tonal options. :)

    I picked up a cirrus 6 a few months back. Walnut and Bubinga. So far, it's given me plenty of reasons to love it and absolutely none to hate it. Cirrus=Good Stuff
  11. I have a peavey T-40 and a TKO 115S for a practice amp. Nothing wrong w/ most peavey equipment. The BAM amps / enclosures are very nice stuff people.

    I have an awesome peavey fury (ya know the p bass ripoff?). It was my firstbass, and I will always try to keep it around. Ya know, i am playing a Fender P now and i really can't see too much of a difference. Someday I will own a Cirrus 6!!!

    Oh yeah forgot to put that I own a Peavey TNT 115 amp. I think it sounds great- and it is VERY durable.

    I play two Peavey Cirrus 6ers. Fretted - flamed maple over alder. Fretless - Claro Walnut.
    Absolutely love them. They're the only basses I own now. Previously owned Fender, Yamaha, Carvin, Warwick, Roscoe etc.
    Here's a pic.

    I play a 5-string Peavey Grind BXP, got it about 5-6 months ago. Beauty for the price I paid ($750, NEW) but took a little while to work out all the bugs (Getting used to the active electronics, couple of problems with the preamp) But I wouldn't have bought any other bass.

    Durable bass too, it went head first into pavement and the peg stayed right on, but still damaged. I didn't want to take any chances, so I got it fixed, but with the right stuff, you could fix it youself.
    Not the scratches and dents though :(

    My Peavey is a B-Quad 4. I love playing that thing! Perfect neck size (for me) plus the neck is graphite so I don't have to worry about it shifting much when the humidity is super high here. :D

    The very first bass I got was a Peavey Patriot. Solid white and the best thing since sliced bread when I got it!!!

    Recently, I picked up a bubinga Cirrus 6 with a hardshell case in the three digit price range!! Very nice bass!! Gotta put some new strings on it.
