I'm deciding between a Q5 and a Cirrus 5 for my next bass. There is a nice Q5 on ebay that I would bid on that ends tomorrow, so I have to decide soon if I'm going to snatch it up. What my biggest concern is is the difference in tones compared to the difference in price. I'm looking for a defined low end that's not boomy, and very clear highs when playing in the upper register. Slap is very important too, but I know from my searches here on TB ( ) that both have some of the best slap tones on the market. I play mostly "jam band" music - i.e. Phish, Grateful Dead, etc. So what do you guys think, go all out for the Modulus, or save a considerable amount and get the Cirrus. I'm only 17 and funds are there, but limited.
