Head-turning looks and block-rocking sound!
The bass of choice for musicians with styles as diverse as John Taylor (Duran Duran), David C. Johnson (Aaron Neville), and Rob Wright (Chris Cagle), the Cirrus 5-string from Peavey provides deep, impeccable tones thanks to 2 VFL active pickups working in conjunction with the sounds coming off the high-quality Pau Ferro fretboard and solid wood body. The neck-thru body has a graphite reinforced neck with dual expanding truss rod and a graphite overlay on the headstock. As part of the neck-thru design, four thin lines of colored wood run parallel to the strings, two between, and one just outside the B and G strings that provide a sharp contrast to the rest of the body's natural wood grain look.

I purchased the Cirrus 5 with quilted maple top & pau ferro fingerboard. I went to just about every guitar dealer within 300 miles and tried dozens of basses from several different makers. This is the one I chose. I have had every sound engineer I have played for make the comment that it has the clearest tone of any bass they have ever heard. So when they say studio quiet electronics, they mean it. The only thing I would change would be to go fretless. Maybe I'll do that with a 4 string version.
I use this bass for classic and hard rock. I also record with it. The craftsmanship is superior to any bass I've ever handled. With the active electronics on this, you can get any sound you want. I played this bass unplugged in the music store and the tone is what sold me. Yes it is expensive, but compared to some of the more popular name brand basses in the same price range, this blows them out of the water.
I bought this bass for my church because of its awesome feel and tone.The Cirrus holds its own against basses costing twice as much.The Cirrus is an incredible custom-bass for a nice price.I liked it so much that I bought one for myself also.
