Peavey is known everywhere for making world-class PA equipment, the most road-worthy amplifiers in existence, and the American-made Cirrus bass. Here’s one that dates to 2002, and it is a beauty.
The Cirrus line is remarkable for a number of reasons. They were some of the first bases to have a full 35″ scale length, meaning the low B can do what it’s supposed to do: Shake the walls unfettered by the ‘pinched-off’ sound shorter 5-strings often get in the low end of that low string. Electronics-wise, the pickups are active with no-nonsense volume and T/M/B/ controls that affect both positions.
The body of this beast is a 9-piece with the majority of it being made up of flamed maple, which makes for a very warm and even tone across the range of the instrument. The 5-piece neck runs through the body and sports a pau fero fretboard, and while there are dot markers along the side, the board itself is unmarked save for an abalone ‘C’ inlaid at the 12th fret. The hardware appointments are gold-finished, with a solid milled bridge.
The headstock is finished with a black sheet over a carbon-fiber veneer, although a previous owner saw fit to attempt to carve his name in the top which caused the black sheet to peel and expose the veneer. Also, this bass’ name is ‘Regina’ apparently, according to he hand-engraved cavity cover on the back. Finally, the back of the headstock has been signed by Kai Eckhardt of Garaj Majal. Otherwise, this is a tip-top player that looks good, feels great, and sounds amazing.
