What do you think of Peavey Bass?

Hi, my brother bought a bass, played a couple times and is selling it to me. Its a peavey something and a peavey 50W amp. he is giving me it all for $400, when he payed $700. Are Peavey Basses any good?

I am a fan of their amps and use them often, but Ive never really played their basses. Do you know what model bass he is selling you so I can take a look at one online and see what were talking about here?

peavey basses and their amps have different reputations...

the old T-series basses are considered heavy, but solid...the newer ones aren't discussed too much

I have a Peavey Grind 5 bass. I love it. The stock humbuckers weren't exactly to my tastes (a little too chunky), but I installed a coil splitter, and bingo! Great bass.

A guy at my church used a peavey bass and amp. I played his setup and it felt/sounded pretty good.

well the bass is at a friends at the moment, i think i will be getting it back today. I think the model is like "millenium" (spelled wrong) or something. If i get it back today i'll state the exact model.

Sounds kinda high, but Peavey basses are top notch.

They have some nice stuff in the Cirrus line. The rest of them are garbage.


Oh yea, IMHO.

Yup, serious. I use a Tobias and a Roscoe.

A peavey would be good to start out with but other than the Cirrus line (they can be pretty pricey), I would never use a Peavey on a gig.

You can't possibly be comparing a $400 Peavey Grind bass to a Roscoe.

Well, he said what do I think about Peavey basses. Just my personal opinion. But once you experience Pedullas, Warriors, Fodera - its hard to even fathom the sound of a Peavey. Maybe way back 17 years ago when I was saying Fender sucked, maybe I would have liked them them. Still back then I perfered my Yamaha YBB 300

Yeah but those basses hold nothing against my MusicMan Sterling. I think a Peavey Bass would be fine and work really good.
