    A few of you guys knew that I had just closed on my first house. I've been away from TB for about 2 weeks, but now I'm moved in and I finally have DSL here, so I wanted to share my new toys :)

    Oh yea, this is borderline Misc, but because I'm mentioning a bass, it belongs here I think :)

    Anyway, I FINALLY have a music area, as opposed to just sitting starting at concrete basement walls. It's still a mess, but it's getting there.

    To go along with that, I got a new bass. A Peavey Cirrus with the Redwood top. It's one of the neck-thru's too, didn't I hear that these were discontinued? Anyway, I bought it at a sale the local store was having for $1100. I spotted it a few weeks ago when I was dropping off my G&L for a fret dressing, and resisted the urge to try it because even though I never played one before, I knew I'd probably buy it if I did :) I was surprised they even had one because even though they sell Peavey, they've never had one in stock.

    Anyway, I LOVE it. The output is alot higher than the G&L but it's not as hot and doesn't clip the amp like the G&L did. Also the tone is just what I've been looking for. More clarity, with a kind of a modern and somewhat classic tone going on depending on how I set the eq. Also, the eq is the most responsive I've ever used. Just bumping a knob even the slightest bit either way alters the tone. And hand position does wondesr on this bass for altering the tone. In short, I've never had a bass like this where I felt like the sky was the limit and I could play anything on it. It really is an underrated bass.

    cool looks awesome
  4. You have to love the redwood Cirri!!! I've got a 6er that I love. They're the best ones ya know ;) :bag:
  5. Congrats on both the house and the Cirrus, fourstringdrums. :cool:

    I also couldn't agree more with your statement above, especially the part about, "Just bumping a knob..."

    Isn't it great, all the tones you can get just by moving the blend control a little? :bassist:

    Much luck with home, hearth and Cirrus.

    Mike ;)
  6. Sounds like you've been having a good time the past few weeks. Congrats.

    I think (and correct me if I'm wrong), but I was messing around with the EQ and with the bass at almost flat (boosted a tad), mids cut a bit, and boosted treble, I got a sound that reminded me of a Ric, anyone experienced that or am I way off? :)
