Anybody using a Peavey bass for recording?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by old mark, Mar 12, 2008.

  1. I have a '92 Peavey Foundation, and I can't believe the tone and overall quality of this bass.
    I'm sure it would be great for recording.
    Anyone using a Peavey for studio work?
    What bass, what setup?

    FWIW, this is my first Peavey bass, but I will be shopping for more in the future.
  2. I have a 90s Peavey foundation 5-string (took off the b though) and i just recorded 2 or 3 tracks with it and it sounded great.
  3. o and its set up for 40s i think and i just threw some ernie balls and it sounds great, but im not really a fan of ernie balls.

    I'm glad you like that Foundation! I heard Tim Landers used one back in the eighties for sessions. I know he was a monster fusion player too and designed Peavey's TL-5 & TL-6 basses.
  5. Foundations are so underrated. I know a few guys that own very expensive basses but gig with a foundation because they sound and play great and they are cheap and plentiful. I have recorded with mine but I don't have any of the recordings here. You can get a really nice growl from these things.

    I had a Peavey Fury bass that was just sweet. Played great sounded great. Unfortunately I sold it in some hard financial times. I miss that bass. Nothing but praise for Peavey basses from me!!!

    I saw a band from LA called REMAIN back in 93 and their bass player had a Peavey Foundation running through an SWR rig (head and 4x10 cab) and he sounded awesome! I'll never forget that show!

    My Dyna-Bass 5 recorded extremely well. I used it on the most "serious" recording sessions as far as gear/studio that I've ever had.

    I have a Peavey DynaBass 5-string that I have used for the past 15 years, both in the studio and live. It has active 3-band eq and the best feeling neck that I have ever played! Great tone, too - especially for slapping/popping.

    I`ve been using my Peavey Cirrus for recording recently.
    It delivers a great sound recorded with 0 noise. Great tone to achieve a deep bottom groove.

    I generally go direct to my sound card or thru my Sansamp.
  10. Peavey Cirrus 4... Sweet bass!!! Sweet Tone!!!

    My former teacher recorded track #6 (Resorte) with my Cirrus.
    Check it out here:

  12. Thanks for all the responses - and the link (great!)

    I have been playing the Peavey for only a few weeks, but I'm more impressed with it every time I pick it up.

    My Foundation was my go-to recording bass in the mid-90s. Always could count on it for a good tone on the track.
