Great Bass

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I love the sound adjustability and the easy fret board of this bass. It sounds amazing, clean with really clean low's and bright higher tones. I'm also impressed how long it stays in tune with Peavey strings. It's my first 5 string and I appreciate the fast, friendly neck. The only negative is when the two batteries go, they give little or no warning so keep two nine volts in your case. Buy it, you will love it.

Great Value Great Quality

By moe2244

from Winkler, MB

I have played my Cirrus BXP for a year. Before this I had a Fender Jazz 4 string, Fender Jazz 5 string, both very nice bass guitars.What I like is the whisper quiet active pickups, neck through design, wide range of tone with treble, mid and bass controls coupled with the pickup blend control.The neck was a little narrower than the Fender 5 string but that didn't take long to get used to.Fit and finish is great. I compared this bass to some that are quite a bit more $$ and couldn't find a significant difference. Not sure they still make the Cirrus BXP with the neck through. My band says I get more clarity but didn't lose the depth of tone.

slappin okie

By slappin okie

from oklahoma

superb tone! before i bought mine i tried atleast 12 basses ranging from grinds(owned a 4 string) to american fenders. for something under a thousand bucks this is the guitar you will never regret buying! the active eq is superb and like their claim noiseless active electronics, once again outstanding! if you like getting excellent quality this thing delivers! unlike other brands your not paying inflated prices for a name, your paying for a superb,work of art guitar! one thing though, the electronics are active and dont give you much warning before the batteries go dead so carry spares. they last for a number of months though. the neck threw design gives great sustain and sure looks purdy! all in all,well worth the money!

Smokes The Competition

By bassboy810-QvRWZ

from APO, AE

See all my reviews

First of all, this bass is beautiful. The pics don't do it justice. I have the tiger eye and let me tell you the finish is flawless. Second, the sound is phenomenal. The sustain lasts for days and the tones you can dial in are sweet. Third, it plays comfortably. It's not too heavy and the neck feels nice. I have played basses that cost three times as much that don't even come close to the playability or sound of this beauty. I highly recommend this bass for any experience level.

Nice Bass

By LSUFANATIC26

from Louisiana

See all my reviews

The color is not like the pics,But looks great anyway. The only draw back is the strings that come on it. Get a good set of flat wound and it will sound great. The neck is smooth and fast, with a very low action. Very nice bass for the price. Not made in USA.

eddieprice

By Eddie Price

from Georgia

Awesome bass! I traded a Yamaha five string for it and I couldn't be happier. The sustain is incredible and it has the nice rich tone I was looking for. I've played rigs that cost twice as much but didn't come near the tone and playability as this one. Only problem was a loose cord connector. The factory strings were terrible but once replaced I was in love. I matched it with a Crate kt100 amp and the results were fantistic. I highly recommend this bass for anyone looking for a superb guitar at a great price.

Best bass I've ever played

By Bassbuddy

from Louisville, Ky

See all my reviews

This bass is all around the best bass I've ever played. It is relatively cheap and it has great tone. The action is almost perfect when you get it and it doesn't take long to set it to your standards. True, it takes a little while to get used to the bridge, but it's worth it. It has a wide range of tones and sounds. I've had this bass for a few months and it rarely goes out of tune. Surprisingly, it's light and doesn't wear you out. overall, this bass is amazing and I wouldn't trade it for anything. It made me love peavey

Sick

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

this bass is awesome, ive been playing 5 strings for around 5-6 years and my first 5 was a peavey fury 5. i had always wanted this bass and when it came down to buying a new one it was either a chester studio 5 or this one. though i did like the schecter alot i decided to go with this bass to stick with the company that originally introduced me to the 5 string world. when i got it and opened it up i was nothing short of amazed. this thing is beautiful it doesnt look like the picture though, it has a unique amber orange finnish to it and the neck/fingerboard play incredibly well. most of the other basses i have owned have had rosewood fingerboards but i definately prefer the pau ferro. the neck thru design adds some nice sustain and the fret inlay on the 12th looks beautiful. i have never been more impressed or satisfied with a bass guitar and i am highly impressed with this company. if you are even somewhat interested i would highly advise trying to get your hands on these before they are gone, you will not be dissapointed.

absolutely amazing

By none-MGrQq

from boston area

See all my reviews

I have had this bass for almost a year and I must say it beats any that I was looking at when I got it. I got the quilt top tiger eye & it looks nothing like the picture here, if you want to know what it really looks like take a gander at the peavy cirrus that is over 2000. I have no idea how this beast ofa bass was so cheap but the tonal quality is top of the line & the neck is thin so it plays incredbly well. The pick-ups sound amazing even through poor quality amps with bugdet cables so you know its a good deal. The 3 band eq is also very helpful in getting the tone you want when used with your amp's settings. This is one bass that will never need to be replaced.

weeeee

By choco moo

from florida

First off to set this straight...The quilt tiger eye is orange in front, and a BEAUTIFUL red in the back.The neck is smooth as a babies bottom and is striped to add awesome looks. The sound is so versatile, you can go funky funk funk then roaring rock. It's light weight, even lighter than my 4 string! One problem...One of my tone knobs is loose and thats all...awesome bass, A steal for the price!

a bass well worth the money

By ...-l8uUT

from missouri

i got this bass about 2 years ago when they first came out with 'em and i've been in love with it ever since the first time i picked it up. it has an amazing tone, the pickups are great, the only down fall is the stock strings so just put some dr's on it when you get it and it'll be perfect

Peavey Cirrus BXP 5 Bubinga top

By Robbie Robinson

from East Peoria, IL

See all my reviews

Ask me a question

The bass is pretty nice. You can tell though that the bass was manufactured overseas. There are some obvious cosmetic blemishes around the battery and controls covers. The wood itself isn't bad, has some spots in it.The downside for me is the pickup blend knob. It doesn't have much effect until it hits center, then it puts both pickups out of phase and sounds real thin. Move the knob a fraction too either side and it goes back to the selected pickup and sounds normal. Other words, it doesn't really blend too well. The other really strange thing about this bass is that it had 3 new strings and too old ones. The B and E were obviously very old and dead. For that reason, the strings sound uneven. Probably no fault of Peavey.

Magnificant!

By gNet777

from Mississippi

See all my reviews

Wow. This bass is amazing. I normally dont even pick up a 5-string, but this one was just so beautiful, I had to put my hands on it! It sounded exellent! The profile is really low and has almost no fret buzz what-so-ever. It also has a real nice sound. If your thinking about getting, I would def go for it. If I played a 5-string, i would own one already!

A Worthy Purchase

By Ladiesman217

from Scranton, PA

About a year ago I began looking for a new bass. It took only one play of this instrument to know that this was the one I wanted. It sounds great and the preamp is very versatile, I am able to cut a lot of treble out of my sound or boost the bass to rattle the entire room. It was surprising to find that this bass is very light and doesn't tire your shoulder. The neck plays well and is very sturdy. This instrument delivers a lot, it is an unbelievable steal for the price.
