Peavey Fury ? ? ?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by No Neck Shrek, Oct 6, 2010.


  1. First post ever.... I have a Peavey Foundation S and I'm thinking about getting another bass with active pickups.
    I've been looking at the Millenniums (usa) & Fury. Which would you choose ? Why ? I found a nice Fury IV for $125 & the Millenniums are about 5-6 times that, are they worth it? :help:

    Millennium hands down and yes they are worth it.
     
  3. Are all the Furys USA made ?

    USA Furies are killer passive basses. The old ones are slanted single coils, the newer ones are P-basses. They are dirt cheap with super slim necks (like a Lakland Duck Dunn.) The newest Furies are simply budget level import active basses that are decent bang for the buck, but nothing special. A USA Millennium is a great bass, and one that is becoming harder to find nowadays.

    Millenniums sell insanly fast, especially the Plus versions. USA millenniums are top notch and easily worth the cash if you find one thats visually appealing to you.
     
  9. OK, what are your feelings on a G-2 Bass ? $250 ?

    The Fury IV is a Korean made bass. They're very well made and a very good deal at $150. They have VFL pups - but the preamp is boost only. With a decent preamp, they'd really come to life.

    The USA Millennium is a different beast. With the Super Ferrite pups and the excellent Millennium preamp, it's a killer.

    i wouldnt get an active full stop...with the amps today you dont need em..batteries and crap.
     
  13. No Neck: How do you like you Foundation S ? I* have never had a Peavey and have a chance to but one in really good shape. Are they a good bass? Do they compare to a Fender Jazz? Thanks.

    Get it, you won't be disappointed. Snap it up...or else I will! I used to own both basses you discuss and I sold my 2008 Fender Am Std. as soon as I played the peavey!
     
  15. I'll ALWAYS have my Foundation S ! I had a bone nut & a Badass II bridge installed and it sounds better than anything else I've heard. Last week I purchased another Foundation S for my wife, its stock......so far..... I 've just was playing with the idea of adding another to the collection with active pickups. :bassist:
     
  16. At our current market, I'd be looking at a USA Millenium Plus

    Then PM me as it will probably have bad setup.

    Millenniums don't have Super Ferrites. They have a variety if VFL pickups.
