Im verry spesific about my basses i own a fender hot-rodded american p-bass deleux, and a michel kelly 5-strinf fretless dragonfly. so i'm use to luxury and this bass is no exeption there is no way i would sell it or any of my other basses i gave it a 9 in value only because i had to pay extra for a frettless model
The low b has a different growl than the peavey grind, but the controlls are great and versitle. You can acomplish many sounds that are desired. The action is great and the feel is great too. I'm very glad I purchased this bass and it'll be my workhorse for a long time. Great buy!!!
I love this bass! I've had (and still own) several others including a Fender Fretless Jazz, Tobias, and a Peavey G-bass. The action is incredible, as well as the variation of tone. The neck is extremely comfortable for a 5 string. The active pickups are extremely quiet. The only thing I didn't like were the OEM strings. I replaced them with flat wounds.
I have had a fretted Cirrus 4 (walnut & wenge) for years and it has always been my main rock and roll bass. I have a Godin fretless 4 which never seemed quite right and the electronics very weird. So finally I sprung for the Cirrus fretless 5 string and I have not picked up any other bass since. The sound is phenominal--I play through two Harke cabinets--and the fretless sound and the redwood body give it a shimmering quality unlike anything else. Add the natural growl on the bottom and the mwah on the top, and you have a very cool and useful sound indeed! It responds well to all dynamic subtleties and has very fast action. Perfectly balanced. If you are new to the 35" scale, let me say it really makes you pop. I am thoroughly pleased and recommend this bass without any reservations.
I have had this bass for about 7 years and I still LOVE this bass. Paired with 4x10 Ampeg cabinet, it is an unbeatable pair. You can't beat the warmth, sustain, and punch that this bass has. This bass is definitely worth the bucks... BUY IT
Beautiful bass-Light compared to most bass guitars--sounds real special--Lowest action bass I ever played without a buzz- -no noise electronics--I also play a Bongo fretted bass. It sounds real special too. I like um both the same. The Cirrus seems more easy to play but they both have their own special HI-FI sound only found in more expensive Bass Guitars.
I bought my Cirrus 5 four years ago and end up using it for virtually every gig -- despite also owning an Alembic and a Fender Jazz. I have tried dozens of high-end basses, and somehow none feel or sound like my Cirrus 5 -- super low action and fast playing and fully accessible 35 inch neck, awesome clean low-B and on-board eq that allows me to shift between deep growl, fat boom, bright slap and clean jazz styles. Looks great, feels great and never fails to draw compliments from other bass players who always agree its an incredible instrument. Play it through a clean, loud rig (I prefer my EA 350) for maximum versatility. Save your money -- you don't need to spend for the Pedulla, Tobias or Lakland brands to get quality sound, workmanship and overall playability.
I bought this bass 5 years ago and its still my main axe. Its near impossible to find a bass that plays and sounds as good as this bass without going into the real high price range. With the active eq you can get really solid punch and warmth that really cuts through. Really low action without buzz. More less, its the S***.
