Plenty of sustain and a bright, standout tone.
Apart from the pau ferro fretboard and maple stringers in its neck, the rest of this natural beauty is walnut. Combined with its neck-thru design the walnut construction results in a solid bass with plenty of sustain and a brighter tone that gives your solos a bit more pop. This 24-fret Cirrus model's internally active VFL pickups, 3-band EQ with 10dB cut/boost, and milled ABM multi-adjustable bridge make it easier to keep your tones consistent for whatever style you play. It has a hand-rubbed oil finish, luxurious gold hardware, and comes with a case.

It's a honey...! let other bassists play it at a Jam I run in Santa Fe..they're all pleasantly surprised...often stays in tune from gig to gig, except for the G string...after 12+ years of hard playing, the aged wood looks classy...I might change out the pickups someday for something more punchy, but not ready to mess with a good thing...active electronics and great high, mid, and low eq. knobs well positioned for tweaking on the fly...balance is near perfect where the fretboard ends.
I went to LA Music weekly for 3 months to try this baby out...wasn't planning to buy a new axe, certainly not a Peavey, but I couldn't resist...beautiful woods - walnut, bubinga, pau ferro...neck thru body, 2 octaves, action like butter...it practically played itself in my hands...my playing was better from day one...I played a Fender P-bass, a Hofner or a Steinberger for years, but this was the one that worked for me..
I've had to replace 2 tuners (broken shafts) and a bridge saddle...otherwise, no problems.
This guitar has all the features any bassist would ever need. The active pickups are tunable by it's EQ, tone, and pickup controls. It even has a boost or cut control. The sound quality is bold, clean when needed, and downright dirty when you want. I started playing bass when I was 13yrs. old, and have owned Gibson, Fender, and Ricks. This guitar has the sound of all of these wrapped in one. The only difference is it plays better than any of them. It has a fast action and is well balanced.
The quality is as good as any bass I ever owned. It stays in tuned better than any I've owned. The neck is flawless. The turners work great with a fine tune, and the bridge is very adjustable (everything stays where you put it). I've owned this bass for 9yrs. with no problems.
I would have to say the quality is as good as it gets, with a great price. Don't buy a bass without playing the Cirrus through a good amp first.
It is a through neck design so you have to like that... but if you do, this bass compares favorably to anything out there including the very expensive boutique basses. I can't recommend this bass highly enough. It is all there from a singing solo tone to growl to beef. Pair it with the right amp and you can play any gig with it.
I'd be really hard pressed to say much negative about this bass. I do wish you could bypass the active pre-amp in an emergency, but I just have to carry extra batteries with me at all times. I like the oil finish, especially on the neck, but it does scratch a bit from my nails where I pop.
it really is as good as anything out there
the price isn't cheap and they don't hold their value as well as some other basses, but I don't ever plan to sell mine
This one of the best basses ive ever played.
If a Rickenbacker 4003 and a Wal MK II had a baby who's grandfather was a Fender Jazz and grandmother was a Fender Precision the child's name would be "Cirrus". This bass is BY FAR the best bass I've ever owned in the last 25 years of playing. You can't go wrong with instrument.
Over 30 years I've played and owned many different basses. The Peavey Cirrus bass is definately among the finest instruments on the market to play as well as being a good value in a most definately professional model. With 24 frets, excellent balance and shape as well as a "fast" and easy chording neck it is a pleasure to play. The on-board active electronics allows for adjusting and shaping the tone for virtually any need a professional may have. This Peavey bass has been consistently played for over five years now and is reliable, well-designed and built to last. When it is chorded, the smooth, clean tone produced without any noticible fret noise always turns heads including those of discriminating studio engineers. A year ago, I replaced the barrel jack receptacle because it was a bit loose, due to normal wear and tear. This was due to my own abuse and not a fault of the instrument. If this bass was lost or stolen, I would most definately attempt to replace it with another exactly like it.
Wow- what a nice bass. I saw this at the local music store and was quite surprised how nice this bass was. I never liked Peavey guitars but I do now. I've had it about 2 years and I like it more as time goes by. The only drawback is it eats batteries so unplug your cord after each use. Try one out, I think you'll be surprised.
