    The Peavey Cirrus is the poor man's MTD.

    While the Peavey IS, indeed, a wonderful bass, IMHO, the MTD Heir, the MTD Kingston and the MTD Saratoga ARE the poor but INCREDIBLY SMART mans MTD. Anything else is just a wannabe. :^>)

    and for my defense, they are not the poor man's MTD, but the student who simply can't get $3000.

    And the smart man's

    Does that mean the MTD is the rich man's Peavey Cirrus?

    Discuss.

    The Cirrus is great -- but is a different sounding beast than the MTD -- to me, more rounded, less growly.

    The Cirrus is the poor man's ken Smith, not MTD. Cirrus' sound alot like Smith's to my ears.

    While such a response as mine might seem somewhat off the wall, MTD has a reputation of being at te top of the hill when it comes to Woodstock basses......but many players don't have a clue as to how amazingly good the lower end MTD's are. If you haven't played a new Heir, for instance, be prepared to be blown away.....by the instrument first.....and then by the LOW price. :^>)

    They are more like the poor man's Ken Smith IMHO...(look at PUP placement for example)
