    I´m very close to buy a Peavey Cirrus (Wenge) 4-string is it a good buy. Or should I reflect over any other brand? The price is about $ 900 and it´s brand new.
    Thankful for any commentary about the subject.
    All the best

    That's a good price, on a great bass. You could get a used one for less, but new, that's a good deal IME.

    Do a search on Cirrus. I think that you will find that most people here like them. I love my tigereye Cirrus 6!
  3. I bought my 4str rosewood Cirrus in december 2001 and this is one of the best instruments I've played in its price range. I've had it for over half a year and I changed the strings for the first time last week (over six months later!!!).
    It sounds great, is extremely versatile, really easy to play, beautiful, sounds great, comfortable and not heavy at all... and it sounds great!
    You can tune in any sound you want with the three band EQ.
    In my opinion you can't be anything but happy with this bass.
    GO FOR IT!

    You can find some good reviews on <A HREF ="http://www.harmony-central.com/Bass/Data4/Peavey/">Harmony Central</A> and here on <A HREF="http://www.talkbass.com/reviews/reviewindex.php">TalkBass.</A>

    Good look!

    I doubt you'll find a new bass of better quality for that money. The Cirrus is a very special instrument, in a good way. My bubinga/walnut Cirrus has a deep, modern tone with tight lows and low mids, and a very "airy" treble, bright but not harsh. I think the wenge model's tone wouldn't be too far from it. No Fender- or Musicman-style grunt, but more "refined". If you're not a strict traditionalist when it comes to tone, I'd say buy it or you'll kick yourself later.

    I would go for it, especially since Peavey is no longer making the wenge model due to the availability of that paticular wood.

    Yeah, I would go for it. For that kind of dough, you can't go wrong.
