What would you use in a jazz big band out of these two basses?

    Ok, recently I've been bitten by the gas bug for a Cirrus. All I have ever read are good things about them and it appears they are extremely versatile. I currently use a Warwick Streamer LX5 with TI-flats in a jazz big band (ok I pull out the SR5 for the funk tunes) and am just curious as to which axe you'd prefer to play in such a setting (Warwick with flats or Cirrus with rounds or flats). I don't have a chance to play a Cirrus before I buy one which is why I would like opinions...I would hate to sell the Warwick to fund the Cirrus then after find out I liked the Warwick's tone better! *sigh* Help me please!
  2. Warwick with flats. Warwicks are so damn bright, but I would think with flats, it would be nicer. I like that Cirrus design your own bass site. I designed an alder with maple neck and see-through black finish, black hardwear and unlined fretless. If that was the Cirrus, then I would pick that.
