I've test drove many bass guitars for the passed year. And some I'd tried more than once. I chose the the peavey cirrus bxp bubinga bass; For the tone, the construction quality, the neck, Its quality is as good as it looks. This bass feels & sounds better than basses that cost five times as much; this bass is the best all around. Though I must admit I learned to test drive more than one of the same model of a bass because some might have a defect and when you test one thats right you will know it. Even a few sales men said they do not understand the price of this bass..But there great at that price and there flying out the door.
i have been playing bass for 4 years now. and this is my 3rd bass. i have played top line fender jazz bases and etc. but nothing stands up to this bass. the best bass you can by for under a grand. also its 5 tone knobs let u make the exact sound you want to get out of your bass. very fast neck and pretty slim. the eactive pick ups put out a great sound and the Bubinga Top is a beautiful design. made for all genres.
I went to a music store to get a bass, and I tried basically each one they had in the store and this one was hands down the best.It plays better then any other bass in the same price range (I payed $370) used or new. In my opinion the thousand plus fender sounded a little better, but this one is not far behind.It plays better then all other basses I played (fender included) and it has features not normally found in this price range (neck-through, active pickups that can be passive as well, bubinga flamed top wood, and just strait playbility.)I can't believe I've never heard of this bass before, and I highly recommend it if you can check it out and play it first.
I played this bass the other day, and wow! This thing is amazing. I like the weight and neck more so than the Grind. The active EQ and pickups provide amazing tone and versatility. I played a Fender Jazz bass the day before because i was looking for a brighter tone that could also achieve a growly, ballsy tone, and the Fender had nothing on this Peavey, especially when it comes to playability. I like to do slap/pop stuff, so I prefer my basses without pick guards, and there is plenty of room to pop on this. But, the action is pretty low and is nice for playing traditional finger picking style. At first, I played it through a Peavey tour series head and a 4x10 cab, and it was Heaven to my ears. I figured I needed to plug it in to something similar to what I had, so I plugged in to a Peavey 1x15. It didn't have the same high end as the 4x10 did, but still an amazing growl. I do plan on getting this bass, and upgrading beyond my dean...Just gotta talk to the parents. Amazing bass, get it!
Easily, this is one of the best deals ever. This bass plays and sounds better than most of your top of the line models. Great for thumpin' and a great price.
Picked up this little gem a week or so ago and have had trouble putting it down. I got the one with tiger eye quilt finish with gold hardware and the bass is gorgeous. Electronics work fine out of the box, bass just needed minor tweaking (neck/action) when I got it, but that's to be expected. The tonal range you can get from this bass is amazing and the neck is nice and thin, and very fast. Great bass for the price. Highly recommended.
When I bought this bass, I was looking for a modern bass to have for variety (I own a 95 jazz). The active pickups allow lots of variety but won't fit in some types of music. Also the bridge saddles dont go as low as I like (I prefur extemly low action as I dont pluck very hard and like to let the amp do the work). My only other gripe is that the pickup pan knob makes a scratchy noise but only if you move it while a strig is viberateing, not a big deal. If your looking for a bass to cover modern music get it, if you into older music get a fender instead or get this for side projects like I did.
This is my third bass, after a starter Ibanez and then a Peavey Grind. And it's a BIG step up.I have the Tiger eye one, and it's gorgeous. The Bubinga was also great looking. I also have a HipShot drop-D tuner on it, and the active elctronics have been upgraded to the sweepable-mid model, which I feel has a huge impact on my ability to shape the sound.I'm not a seasoned enough (or wealthy enough) bass player to have played really high-dollar instruments to compare to, but to me, this bass is just succulent. It plays great (although the 35" scale is a lot for a novice or small-handed player to handle), and the sound is better than anything I've played yet. The only thing I'd have asked for is a better and more easily-adjusted bridge, but once it's set up, that wouldn't matter anyway. The thing plays, sounds, and looks great, and I didn't have to re-do the kitchen to justify buying it. Highly recommended, if you're looking in this price range.
Quite possibly the best active electronics and pickups combo in any bass under $1000. Ultra quiet 18 volt active EQ is very adjustable and the tonal variety is awesome; p-bass, j-bass, growl... get it all. Finger-style bridge compliments the sound nicely - tons of sustain. The bass is light but very solid with nice fit and finish - excellent factory build quality. The bubinga finish is too beautiful for words. Great neck feel but factory action setup was terrible with too much relief. After appropriate adjustments it is now spot on. Given the features and quality of electronics, there isn't a comparable bass in this price range.
This is an amasing bass for the price. The only problems I found is that the clear finish on the Bubinga model is really a pain to take care of. And it makes sliding onnthe neck a pian if your sweating through your set. Other than that it is a great bas for the price. I also recomend the Hardshell case for it, great to have if you own a Neck-through instrument.
This bass is amazing. Period. I joined a new band and they had bought this bass for their previous bass player to use, so I inherited it. When you're used to playing Fenders/Musicmans and Warwicks, this thing is like playing on air! The neck is slim and fast, with easy play up to the highest fret. The high bass lines in Freebird are no longer a problem! The only drawbacks are that there is no external battery access, meaning every time you need to change the 2 9V, you have to unscrew the back plate. Also, the is no active/passive switch, so the preamp is always on eating juice from the moment you plug it in. All in all, a good bass for the price! I'm getting a Fender Jaguar bass because it has an active/passive switch, and it looks more vintage to go with my band's classic rock feel.
