Ok, I really like the Cirrus, but recently alot of people have been bad mouthing it, so now I'm not sure. Also although it sounds amazing for the jazz type stuff I do, I'm not sure how much punch it would have in a band setting. Also I tend to use a smiley EQ, and the Cirrus has accentuated mids, so it would seem kinda dumb to buy a bass built for mids, when I'm always cutting them. I do like ALOT of highs though. TRB6II -(haven't played one yet, will do this weekend) I really like that it has piezos. I really dislike that its a 34" scale neck. Is the B floppy?!?!?!?! Also I'm not really sure of its pickups, are the electronics good? Finally it doesn't look as nice as the cirrus. (all peavey) My amp is a FireBass 700, a 4x10TFX, and 1x15BX BW If that makes a difference. I also run it through some rackmount effects.
