Santa Barbara, CA (April 2, 2013) -- For years, Steve Harris of Iron Maiden has been using custom-spec P-Bass pickups built exclusively in the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop. The SPB-4 Steve Harris Signature model is the production version of that very same pickup. Road-tested by Steve Harris for more than a decade, the SPB-4 Steve Harris Signature Model P-Bass pickup has cemented itself as a permanent part of heavy metal history. The custom-spec vintage-hot coil windings (13k Ohms), and Alnico 5 rod magnets provide just the right combination of warmth and punch to compliment Steve’s distinctive two-fingered playing style. The hook-up consists of a standard two-wire P-Bass setup, and the covers feature both the Seymour Duncan logo and Steve’s signature logo.
Steve Harris is the man who founded Iron Maiden (and his new project, British Lion) and has served as one of the most influential metal bass players of all time, with a style of playing and tone that is truly unique. Kevin Beller, Vice President of Engineering at Seymour Duncan writes, “We worked to develop a pickup that could stay warm and deep, something that could fill up the mix without becoming boomy. The Steve Harris SPB-4 achieves this by finding the right balance between warmth, articulation and cut.”
