Played a Peavey Cirrus and a De Armond Pilot Deluxe today. Both were 4 string, new, and very cool. De Armond rings in nicely at $599.99 and the Peavey comes in at a rough $1099.99 Is it worth the extra $500 for the Peavey ? I really liked both but I think that the De Armond played really well for the price and stood its ground (I liked it better than some of the Warwicks I played at GC yesterday). What are your experiences with these basses ? Which one is the way to go ? I am going to buy one of them so any advice would be very much appreciated. Getting that much closer to a new groove machine...... THANKS !!!
