: I have played my old ibanez for long enough now (about 9 years) looking to upgrade and willing to spend 1000 + if necessary, my fav so far is the peavet cirrus 4 or 5. Anyone have ANY comments on this model?? Or can reccomend any other top of the line basses to look into? Thanks!
My Peavey Cirrus-5 (according to my OWN test, of course), outplayed EVERY other high-end bass I tried out, including Alembic, Music-Man, Steinberger, Modulus, Rickenbacher, etc. Nicest instrument I've ever owned. Craftsmanship (handmade, btw) - 10, Playabilty - 10, Tone / Tone Versatility - 10, String Spacing & Neck Radius - 10, Action - 10. In fact, I had already pretty much made up my mind to buy a Modulus when I picked up a Cirrus and the second I plucked on it (acoustically, even), I knew I found my axe. If you've got one hanging on a wall in your area, and if you like it, I suggest you buy it quickly. There's a rumor goin' 'round that these axes are on back-order for up to 9 months now (in some areas). BTW; even though it lists at $1699, I was able to get mine for about $1200 (including the case, an x-tra set of strings, a matching strap), but you may or may not be so lucky with these axes being on back-order now. I'd have paid 3 or 4 thousand for a bass like this. I've forced it into the hands of 4 local pros during their gig and insisted they plug it in for a set and every one of them plan to purchase one soon. I should be getting an override on personal sales, huh? LOL. Good luck with your decision!
