    I have a Peavey Cirrus and love the playability but was wondering what other active pups were available to me and if I would find better pups than I already have ? I want the best possible and was wondering if there are better out there.

    Hey Hounddog,
    Could you post the type of pickups (brand/model) that are already in your Peavey? Including some dimensions (length, width, etc.) would also be helpful. ;)

    JPJ,


    I was thinking about this and I think they are VLF PUPS. I will look into it further when I get home. I am not sure if there is a replacement but was wondering what if any pups are available for a Cirrus Bass.

    I did some looking on the Peavey site and if they're stock, they're Peavey's VFL pickups. They appear to be EMG-shaped, but it's hard to tell just by looking. Depending on the measurements, you may have a lot of options or none at all. ;)

    I haven't found any aftermarket pups to match the Cirrus VFL measurements.

    I was told to contact Tom Wagner 386 517 6823 and he could fix me us with some barts that replace the VLF Pickups that come in the Cirrus. I will try him tomorrow.

    JPJ,

    I will measure those pups tomorrow. I just got home from work and rotate to day shift Tomorrow and I have to be back in at 6:00 in the morning.
