    Hey joevcool, that sounds great ! I agree with you. I LOVE my Peavey Cirrus. It is bubinga on walnut. It kicks ass !!
    I like your idea. It's like having a Ford owners club, or a Mustang owners club, or in my case, a Lexus GS400 club !! Kick ass !!!
    What about a Trace Elliot club ?
    Peavey Cirrus is awesome !!!!!!!!

    I would be down to join a peavey Cirrus Club. I have had my Cirrus about a week, and it is simply the nicest bass I have owned since I traded in my old bolt-on Ken Smith Six like an idiot back in 1998.

    My Cirrus is ruby red with a flamed maple top and alder body. It is a four string, and plays like an absolute dream. This bass also reminds me of an Alembic I owned back in the early 1990's with its long, thin neck and light body. I love the midrange heavy tone, but I am also pleasantly surprised at how much low end thump I can get out of this bass when I turn down the treble and pump up the bass. I can get a convincing old school Stax or James Brown style bass tone in addition to that bright, compressed slap tone that I love about the Cirrus.

    I hope to have pics up on Monday. I always loved the Cirrus, and now that I actually own one, I am even more happy than I thought I would be!:bassist::D:hyper:

    Not sure if you're talking to me. All three are US models, the first two are 2000 redwoods and the last is a Walnut.

    I think he was just joking about the Cirrus' being in the US peavey club in which alot of the members own older heavy basses like the T-40
    btw, is there much of a difference in tone between the redwood and walnut Cirrus? I'm hoping to some day add a Cirrus to my two USA Millennium 5s. So right now I can't join but maybe someday.
     
  17. From my experiences, I don't think the top makes much of a tonal difference, you'll get most of the tone from the fingerboard and body woods. The walnut bodied Cirri definitely have more bite and snap to them.

    Comparing the two (Walnut-Redwood) the walnut is brighter and the redwood has a warmer tone.
     
  19. Count me in. Redwood 6 string here. Best bass I've ever played.
