    It may have been there... I picked it up from Brian at The Low End... Sounds great!! Had to clean it up a little when I got it, but otherwise it was great!!! The Demeter preamp sounds amazing.

    I love Lawrence basses - IMHO he's the most underrated luthier around. I had a custom 6 string fretless for a while that was downright AMAZING. Never played another quite as nice. Sold it though... not a 6 string fretless kind of guy.

    Thanks everyone for the compliments!!! But I noticed a lot have been toward the KL... Let me just say that the Peavey is no slouch!!! Side by side I've found little difference in the construction, and playability.. I must admit that the Demeter preamp tonally puts the Lawrence in the lead.. But the Cirrus is definitely a solid capable bass.
