I played a Peavey 6-string bass recently that was very very nice, 
though the fingerboard was not to my taste (too wide for my dinky 
hands), it was clearly a very well built and playable instrument. I 
also own the PC-1600 and SPAF filter, and they're both quite useful, 
nothing magical, but they do what the should and I wouldn't be 
without them. A studio I work at has their tube mic pre, and it's 
also nice.
