    Finally I try the peavey cirrus 6 .....
    boys and girls a BIG BASS with BIG TONES and GREEEAAAT SHAPE .... I love it. "Only" 1300 $ for that beauty ..... My only doubt is that I never play a 6 string .... I feel it very comfortable in my hands .. but ..... Do you think is only i'm not used and I will learn to play and .... 1300 $ are not cheap !!
    Please feel free to write your opinion !!!
    THX !!
     
  2. i can't comment on the peavey as i haven't tried it yet, but its possible to adapt to anything if you give it enough time and practice.

    I too was blown away by the peavey Cirrus bass. That thing kicks. I just bought a new bass Tuesday (july 10th) and it was between the Cirrus and the Ernie ball musicman Stingray5... I in the end went with the stingray5, I love the way it looks and feels,.... not to mention the sound of this beast. But Yeas The Cirrus is a tasty treat, I would get one if I were you. Maybe after I get a really nice rig (SVT!!!!!) I will grab a cirrus.. but I love my stingray... it is sooo.. oh wait the cirrus.. yeah its a great bass..

    Peaceout

    $1300 isn't a bad price for a new Cirrus 6. In fact, that is what I paid for my Cirrus 5.

    I personally love my Cirrus. I have yet to find a bass who's tone I like more, or one with a faster neck. I can't find on thing to complain about with mine. It is one bass that I will never part with.

    I didn't quite understand your question, I assume you aren't quite sure that you want/need a 6 string?? If you don't know about a 6, then why not check into a 4 or 5 string Cirrus?? I am sure that you would be able to adapt easily to the 6 string, but you need to ask yourself if you need that high C string or not. If not, then you could save yourself some money by going with the 4 or 5 string. Whichever one you decide on, you will be getting a great bass.

  7. The Cirrus 6 is a wonderful bass! I've got a fretless Cirrus 6 that I've owned for 12-14 months, and that bass has treated me very, very well. The fretted ones are cool, too. $1300 is a good price (I got mine for $1200).

    My only gripe was about the electronics - close, but not quite there. I really don't like the frequency at which they've set the midrange - honking and unmusical in my opinion. Maybe my problem had to do with my body woods selection (walnut/wenge)...

    I've since jumped to a Lakland D55-94, which I adore, but I still get a kick out of the Cirrus 6.

    It might be that it is the woods. I haven't noticed this problem with the mids on mine. I have the maple/alder one.
     
  9. Going from 5 to 6 is a lot easier than going from 4 to 5. What are you used to?

    I tried one and liked it a lot. It's the next best bass you can get for that money but a step behind the Yamaha TRB-6P.
