    Haven't tried either but this is what I can tell you. The Peavey lists for about 120 bucks more (new) than the OLP and I would imagine is slightly higher in quality for the price difference. Both basses get good reviews on the review sites but the OLP comes out marginally higher than the Peavey.
    That's all I know.

    In my opinion, Peavey should have stuck with making speakers... I've played a few Peavey basses and I really wasn't all that impressed, just my opinion. I'm currently playing an OLP MM2 and I'm extremely impressed. It was a gift to me and I'll admit I may have never picked it up had that not been the case. I've got nothing but good out of it so far...
     
  4. i'm a big fan of peavey's budget range. i have a milestone 3 i got when i was 14 and it plays better than any other bass in that price range i've ever tried. the grinds are a couple of models above mine, so i would hope they play at least as well.... never tried the OLPs though.

    I know about the Peavey but not the OLP. My opinion is, therefore, worthless. If you have a budget it has to fit into and we know your playing style already, you should probably broaden your accepable axe list a bit. 4 and 5 string slappers are a lot like gas mileage. What are you willing to give up to get good? Since you have got it down to those two, I would got for the grind. Neck and reliability have to be considered at some point. Grinds have them some decent necks.
     
  6. I wouldnt quite agree there, there are alot of people on here that praise the cirrus series, alot!
