Peavey Cirrus 5 string Bubinga
Made in the USA (not just korea that BXP!)
body walnut, bubinga in touch (we suspected a bit anyway)
neck through maple and walnut, pau ferro affects, ASSE massive, but it "s used to it.
24 frets, 35 inch, adjustable gap between the strings at the bridge
Mechanical and gilt easel
head and black knobs
active bass, 3 band eq, volume, pickups selector, the preamp needs two batteries


The handle is pretty solid, and it is rather confusing when one is accustomed to handle jb 4 string, but you get used very quickly and easily you catch the treble.
it has a shape that fits well to the body and is perfectly balanced.
equalizer and the microphones used an impressive variety of sounds easily


most important:
I play rock, hard rock, metal, and it goes anywhere without difficulty, and although I have not really tried, I think she is perfect as a record pop and slap.
mics (I think they are soapbar, the site is not specified here above) make it very good, its a little grainy, which gives more Dimension sounds possible. if the well is defined.
thanks to the equalization, we get fat sounds, and heavy slap, funk, rock, etc.. The slap is superb too. it is for all music a little punchy (grain). less for quiet music.
I love all the sounds of the bass, the problem is to have the opportunity to use them all. the sound is still my favorite neck pickup, bass and treble fully to the tab.
I play on and I use the ashdown bass v-amp pro (behringer - yes I know, yuck) as a distortion, and it goes perfectly with both.


I bought it used at 900 € three weeks ago. I was looking for a 5 string model who sent in any case in hard, and I zyeuter towards Sandberg, the Ibanez, and ESP, yamaha trb and Warwick for that matter.

the +:
sound (grain)
the look (the table Bubinga is superb!)

the -:
the size of the handle

Question money, I'm certainly not going to complain when it is new 2200, and I think that's correct. I could see if this bass for sale at 900 € I think I would jump on it.
