I played my new bass in a set today. I played it though a Bass POD and a Pandora box for Bass (if anyone is interested I will elaborate on why) and if I knew the a bass could sound as rich on the d and g strings as the peavey, I would have bought one long ago.
I would rarely play those strings on my Ibanez sound gear 4 string because it was not effective carrying the bottom end in our band, no matter how much processing or tweeking.
The peavey M + requires very little processing (only a little compression to make up for my lack of ability and a little eq adjustment to add prescience (sp?)) and it sounded rich and full and musical. Add a little tube amp processing from the POD and it sounded fat and funky. Add a little more drive from the POD and it sounded possitively nasty.
It is very hard to put the bass down. My only negative comment is that peavey seems to send them to dealers with large variations in action. Your choice would depend on how you like to address the instrument.
just my thoughts,
: I just bought a millennium plus 5 string. I loved the sound, but did not have the opportunity to be able to compare it to many other instruments due lack of selection. Was just wondering if anyone else has played it and if it sounded as good to them as it did to me.
