Lakland 55-94 or Peavey Cirrus

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by waytoodeep03, Sep 6, 2005.

  1. I really like the jazz sound. I see the bass player on Emeril Live(food network) play the Lakland alot. While I rarely see a bassist play a Cirrus period. Which is better for the jazz/funk deep tone bassline?

    The Cirrus and 55-94 are two very different sounding and feeeling basses. The 55-94 is cut from the Fender mold and has a noticeable neck joint heel. It also has a psuedo-jazz bass sort of sound but with more versatility. The Cirrus is very modern sounding and it has a really slick, neck through feel. It reminds me more of a Ken Smith than anything else. The two basses are not directly comparable to me.

    Lakland 55-94: jazz bass sound with more tonal flexibility
    Cirrus: hi-fi / modern slap sound (also versatile but can´t nail a typical jazz bass sound)

    55-94 gets my vote.

    Alos, the Lakland has wide string spacing, and the Cirrus has very narrow string spacing.
