    i play Metal/Gothic music and ive been playing bass about 3 months.

    ive played all 3 basses, and im still unsure wich to buy. they all sound good.

    Wich bass should i buy, and is the cab worth the money?

    If your pictures worked, I'd atleast be able to see what you're talking about.

    Sorry?

    I've never heard of a Peavey sandwich bass... So I'm guessing that's a nickname? Give me a working picture, or an actual name, and I might be able to help.

    :)

    make sure that cabinet you saw (what brand is HH?) isn't a guitar cab.

    i'd go for the fretted curbow 5 string...fretless isn't exactly the sound you want for heavier music. i've played a curbow before and they're nice. i haven't been all that impressed with peavy basses until the new cirrus line.

    You're asking which you should get, I'm guessing?

    It all depends on what you need.

    Does your cab sound good?
    Do you need a new bass?


    I've never heard of that Peavey bass...
    The most known Peavey basses are the Millenium bass, the G-bass, and the Cirrus. (cirrus is by far the most known Peavey's... around these board's, I think it's becoming one of the more known basses, period.)

    I'd suggest getting a more recent Peavey bass.
    Used Cirrus' can go for about $800. (cirrus 4's)

    I apologize then. I didn't give it much of a look, and I've never seen a cirrus in person. :)
