I really like these strings because they're about all I can get to fit my extra long scale (35") Peavey Cirrus five string. They sound great out of the box and the B string is not floppy like some sets I have had. HOWEVER, contrary to the listing, these strings are not stainless steel. Look closely at the package. They are nickel wound and thus, won't last as long as stainless steel sets.

Surprised to see that Peavey has changed the design of these strings after all these years. They no longer have the fabric wrap on the ends and the tuner side is not as tapered as in the past. As a result they no longer fit inside the tuner (of my 2 Cirrus 5s) before making the right-angle bend.

    I had a pair on my bass for 5 years. Never had a tone issue. I figured it was finally time to change my strings. Bought another pair.

            The best strings ever. You can't go wrong with these. If you try them, you will not use anything else. These work in any environment from inside to outside venues and any music type from rock to country and everywhere in between. Do yourself and your bass a favor, try a set very soon...

            I play a Peavey bass guitar, and have tried several brands of strings. Have not been real satisfied with sound or longevity for our church praise band. Tried these strings since they are Peavey, hoping they'd be a better tone for my guitar. Thus far.... excellent! If they have life to them, my search is over.

              Comments about Peavey Cirrus Stainless Steel Strings 5XL:

              I play a Peavey 5 active bass(older model bass). This is a powerful instrument. The Cirrus Stainless Steel Strings 5XL makes playing the bass just like new. It is light, fresh, agressive, lively, strong, consistent, and all the strings out put is balanced. These strings are a must for me.

                Comments about Peavey Cirrus Stainless Steel Strings 5XL:

                I've been using Cirrus 5 string sets on both my older Peavey Dyna-Bass five string and the Grind passive I got last year and they sound great, last long, don't eat the frets, and I don't have to get a bank loan to purchase them...what's not to like.

                Comments about Peavey Cirrus Stainless Steel Strings 5XL:

                I play these on my 5 as well as my 4 string. I've never broken one of these strings. I've had these on sense I got my 5 string almost 9 months ago. I love them, they play well and sound great. They last forever, too. Awesome for anybody, but even better for the underground or not so well funded musician.
