It looks pretty close to the original and it sounds good too. It will also come as a 5 and 6.
Glad to see Peavey brought these back. One of the most underrated basses ever made IMO.
Great basses. Long overdue for Peavey to finally bring them back. They really should of never stopped making them to begin with.
I definitely want to check these out.
The guy also says it has graphite rods in the neck like the original. Assuming this is an import, it will closer to a Skyline style import, instead of the typical BXP.
Maybe these imports will make the used USA models even cheaper!
Will all come down to actual build quality. In terms of the sound, it sounds pretty close to the original, but the BXP also had the same electronics and some people could even make those sound pretty good:
I am thinking that these new Cirrus basses will be high quality imports like expensive Ibanezes or Lakland Skylines.
If that's the case,and the price is good, they can definitely write me down for a 5. Been gassing for a cirrus for a long, but the prices of used US models has climbed so much over the last few years.
I thought it was weird that they stopped making them. It's one of their most popular models. That would be like Gibson saying "we aren't making Thunderbird basses anymore."
My hope is that the new imports will be successful enough that Peavey can re-open a small Cirrus Custom Shop in Mississippi.
If these are in fact a similar business model to the skyline series of basses, we're in for quite the treat.
A Cirrus 6 string with high quality and an import price is probably a huge game changer for me
I'd be interested to see how these sell; hopefully very well and a lot of new models pop up. A fully stealth cirrus would be sweet!
I love my Cirrus. It has been my main bass you years now. The thing plays like butter and I rarely have to do a set up. Battery life is good on these things too. I change the batteries (the preamp runs on 2-9v batteries) roughly every 18 months or so. The only issues I have had with mine is the preamp died about 6 years ago and I had to replace it (I think the preamp was only $50) and there is this weird cracking in the back of the body that has been there since I owned the bass. It hasn't gotten any worse so I don't pay it any mind.
Thanks for posting the video Dr.Cheese, it's just like it's meant to GREAT.
Love both my BXP & USA Cirrus so I'm pleased others will get to experience the joy of owning one.
Thanks a lot for the video. Like others, I've always wanted a Cirrus but just never pulled the trigger. If the quality is anything like my Skyline 55-60, I'll have to add one of these to the collection for sure.
I read in another thread that they will be priced from $995-$1,500, that suggests a high quality import like a Skyline.
wow... thx for posting;.
Sweet! The guy in the video is Bobby Baldwin (aka @BbbyBld ). He's the engineer that designed the new Peavey MiniMega 1000 amp that he is playing through. Too cool!
That's nice to know!
Which has actually happened a few times.
Very cool, Dr. Cheese. The Cirrus has been on my bass to own list. Good to see Peavey bringing them back in any form.
