    Both basses are very nice. IMO you'll have to play both and decide which one you prefer.

    Either of the Ciruses (one or two s's?) but that's just MHO. And I am a big Peavey guy so I may be somewhat biased.

    I would take the Peavey, but only if there was an option to swap the preamp. If not, I'd take the Spector.

    I could be wrong, but I believe that the plural would be Cirri. :D

    Depends on the application. Of those, the redwood Cirrus would be the smoothest and the Spector would be the most aggressive with the bubinga Cirrus somewhere in between. All 3 of them would be more similar than different.

    If I were playing hard-rock/metal, the Spector would be my 1st choice. For almost anything else, I would go with the Cirrus that does it for you. I've used my bubinga Cirrus on everything from Motown to prog-metal, they are a lot more versatile than you would think.

    Curious about this, as the preamp on my Cirrus is far superior to the Tonepump. In fact, I would put it above any preamp that Spector uses on their basses, except for the Hazlab. My statement would be the exact opposite of yours, if I took the Spector, it would be with the expectation of changing out the Tonepump for something else. The preamp in the Cirrus is top-notch. Is there something in particular that you don't like about it?
     
  7. Thank you for your input fellas, but after reading the post below about the damages in Nashville this post seems a bit too selfish. Moderaters can we close this thread please?
