When I first got my hands on the first Peavey Cirrus bass at its NAMM debut, I couldnt let go of it, said Sarzo. My new signature-model Cirrus incorporates elements from my original Peavey signature bass and the Cirrus I played for so many years.
Sarzo added, With the growing threat of deforestation, we wanted to create my new signature bass out of sustainablewoods. Bamboo is an attractive alternative to traditional woods because it grows very rapidly, but most importantly, it sounds awesome, plays great and looks beautiful. You must try it for yourself!
