    This is how I came about the Peavey Cirrus,

    I was checking out the Fred live tour in Las-Vegas and I heard the bass that the bass player Maurice Fitzgerald, was playing, but I could not really see it. I called Fred Hammonds studio (FACE TO FACE) and ask if I could speak to someone about the bass that the bass player was playing on that tour, I was put through to a sound man, who told me it was a Peavey Cirrus :eek: I said "are you sure" A PEAVEY!!!!! :eek:

    He doubled checked and said it was a brown Peavy Cirrus 5 string. I tried my best to find one, and I did a a local store here, I played it and I could not believe how low the action was without any buzz, how powerful it was, 18v preamp :cool: it was all that! The sales person came to me later "hello, is there anything I can help you with, the Peavy you are playing is a very nice bass, and blah..blah..blah.." I was like " shut up! you had me at hello!" :D I bought one a few months later, had to get rid of it a year later, played one today, and now I am kind of sad :bawl: GREAT BASS!

    oh well,
     
  2. Welcome to the fabulous world that is the Peavey Cirrus!
     
  3. Just saw a Cirrus 4 on Harmony-Central or Bassgear.com for 595. That seems like a rediculously low price.
     
  4. The Cirrus is amazingly underrated. Maybe not here at TB, but you won't hear it mentioned much outside of our forum. Great bass by a reliable company, I have a cheaper model peavy guitar (my first stringed instrument) and it plays just as well as a MIM fender guitar. I can't say much for their lower model basses, but the Cirrus is king.

    +1. Every Cirrus I've played sounded and played wonderfully. And they always look oh so nice too. I'd get one...perhaps I should revise my GAS list now.
