    I have a Cirrus 6 that plays great, sounds great and is overall a wonderful instrument. The problem is that I never use the high C string. It is pretty much useless for me. Should I risk getting rid of a great bass to try to find the same thing in a five? I'm afraid that I won't find one that I like as much as this one. The sixth string just complicates things when playing, that along with the Cirrus' string width when jumping back and forth from my Spector 5 throws me off sometimes. :meh:

    Well,it's just a matter of preference really. If it bothers you too much to truly enjoy it,send it along. Many people are seeking Cirrus' right now,although I would never sell mine. The Cirrus truly is a wonderful instrument. Keep us updated,if you do sell it,put it in the Talkbass classifieds. Someone will snatch it up there. -Luke

    I feel the same way about 6 strings...just don't have a need for the C string unless I was doing a project playing chords....5 strings is perfect for me.

    I would sell it and use that money for a Cirrus 5. Or if you are lucky you will find someone who will do an even trade and save some of the hassle. I was lucky to trade a fretless for a fretted recently. I threw in some cash to even up the trade. It was nice to turn two transactions into one.

    Yes I was thinking along those same lines.

    if the c string gets in your way, but you love the bass... take it of!

    my teacher have done it some years back, and was happy ever after:) right now my sixer doesn`t have the c string on it either, due to the fact that my main gig is rock/blues band, i detune half step down and don`t really move beyond the 1rst position :)
