I have a Peavey Cirrus,I don't like the strings that came on the bass they are too pingy. I was wondering from the people who own Cirruses what kind of strings would stop the pingy really bright sound. The when my fingers touch the strings there is a bright sound,you can hear the fingers pulling off of the strings. I have tried turning down the treble but I still can hear it. I would like to still be able to slap. The bass has a bubinga body and a maple neck. It is so bright sometimes I get harmonics just lifting my fingers off of the fretboard. I have owned it for about a month. I am going to get some new strings soon. Let me know what you think.
