    I just got a peavey cirrus yesterday and I want to switch out the cheap looking plastic/rubber control knobs and put some gold ones on instead. But I tried pulling the knobs off and I can't seem to be able to do it. Is there something else I have to do to remove them? Anyone else have this problem? Thanks!

    There is an allen (hex) set screw in each knob. You must first loosen it before removing the knobs.

    Yep, that is why you can't pull them off. Loosen the screw and they will come right off.

    I got the Walnut/Bubinga top one. It plays, looks, and sounds like a dream. I am blown away with this bass. I almost didn't believe all the stuff I was hearing about these basses so I had to try one out and see for myself and I am SO glad I did. This is an amazing bass!

    I think I have similar knobs on my Yamaha RBX, but they where just fit really thoight (like a tiger).


    "Knobs": what a funny word.

    sorry for piggy backing on this thread but i have a question. all but one of the cirrus bass's i can find on line are 35 inch scale and the one that was 34 was pretty old. do they make 34" scale cirrus bass's or are they all 35"?

    They are all 35" except for the Bolt-On's which are both (mine was 35 and the newer ones are supposed to be 34" according to the Peavey site).

    Replacing the knobs on your Cirrus might not be a bad idea anyway. I could never get the stock ones on mine to stay tight. Another local player around here just took the knobs off of his out of frustration one night when a couple of them kept getting loose and falling off.

    I never had that problem with the metal knobs on the Millenium Plus basses that I owned.
     
  12. Congrats on that awesome bass. I've been trying to find a decently priced 6 string on Ebay for a while now. Hopefully by my birthday in June I'll be able to find one.

    Me too. I am still kicking myself for getting rid of my Cirrus 5, and then not buying the beautiful peacock blue Cirrus 6 that TB member reedith had for sale at an awesome price here a couple years ago.
