Peavey brings back Cirrus 4 bass guitar; adds new amp lines

Peavey Cirrus 4

The company has reintroduced its famous Cirrus 4 bass guitar, along with two new amp products, at NAMM 2016.

The company has added a new subwoofer and Piranha Micro Head to its 6505 Series.

Peavey has announced the return of its Cirrus 4 bass guitar, along with a new guitar subwoofer and Piranha Micro Head at NAMM 2016.

The Cirrus was first released in 1997 as Peavey's flagship bass guitar line. Now, back by popular demand, the model returns complete with all the key features of the original.

The 35” scale maple neck-thru bass with mahogany stringers features a Rosewood or Pau Ferro fingerboard with 24 frets and a two-way, fully adjustable torsion rod. It also includes string-thru ferrules, 19:1 ratio Gotoh tuning machines and a milled brass bridge.

Electronics include volume, pickup blend, bass, mid and treble controls with 10 dB boost/cut, providing a mid sweep tone designed to hone in with precision.

Two Peavey USA-designed VFL active humbucking pickups, an active preamp and 18volt electronics also come as part of the package. The model comes complete with satin gold hardware and DR Dragonskin strings.

Peavey has also announced two additions to its long-running 6505 Series – a new guitar subwoofer and Piranha Micro Head.

The 6505 subwoofer is designed specifically to support extended-range guitars and drop tunings. Its size and design matches the rest of the 6505 product line and makes it easy to transport to gigs and recording sessions.

It features 300W of total power, DDT compression, crossover frequency of 120 Hz, a bass contour circuit, 4th order Linkwitz-Riley crossover, 18" heavy-duty woofer, woofer servo for reduced woofer distortion, female XLR mic- or line-level balanced input, male XLR thru, switchable either high-pass or thru, and one 1/4" phone jack for speaker-in capability.

Meanwhile, the portable, yet powerful 6505 Piranha Micr Head follows in the footsteps of the 6505 MH mini head by packing high-gain tones into a smaller, 20W power amp head. Small enough to use in a bedroom, but powerful enough for studio use, the new model is designed to harness the full gain and tone of the 6505 Series.

The 6505 Piranha adds a couple of new settings, including a bright switch, along with a ‘scoop’ control to achieve a wide range of tones with few controls.

Additional features include the 20W (RMS) Solid State power amp, one 16ohm speaker output, Aux input, 12AX7 preamp tube, and tooled metal cabinet.
