Ibanez or Peavey

For about the same price I can get a Peavey Cirrius OR an Ibanez SR400.....

Thoughts, pro, cons, advice....

My main bass now is my Fender P... looking for a little different sound but not too harsh, I've not like the tone I've gotten with Musicman types of pickups. Not a metal player, focus mostly on Contemporary, Gospel, Blues, classic rock, with some country and jazz thrown in at times.

Thanks

I've never played a Peavey or an Ibanez bass. As far as guitars go though, I would probally pick Ibanez over Peavey. I'm not a fan of Peavey. Nor Peavey amps. I know a girl with a Peavey bass that makes it sound right though.

US made Cirrus or overseas series?

I am a huge fan of the Made in USA Peaveys. Really, really solid, good sounding gear.

The BXP model, but I've found an Ibanez SR500 in the same price range that I'm leaning toward

The Ibanez SR500 with Bartollinis will definitely be the growliest bass out of those three. The Cirruses (Cirri?) are also great basses, but I'm a little bit wary of Peavey's BXP line quality. I've only played a few of their BXP basses (not the Cirrus) and they were all kind of sketchy. The BXP does have the same electronics as the US-made Cirrus, which are AWESOME if you like really clean, modern sounding basses, so keep that in mind.

If it were my money, I'd go with the SR500.

Thanks. That's what I figured after all my research. Glad to have it validated.

I bought the SR500.

Find a music store, play models from both, then you will know which one you want.

Reds Fan, so, it's been 8 days. How do you like your SR500? How do you like the Bartolini's?
