Overview

Get the mighty bass tone of Iron Maiden's Steve Harris.

Known for his galloping fleet-fingered bass lines, Steve Harris’ distinctive style and tone have, and
continue to be, required reading — whether you’re into metal or not. Like Tech 21’s other signature gear, the SH1 is not just for one single tone or genre. The controls are designed to provide an expansive range of adjustability so you can dial in a wide spectrum of bass tones as well.

A true hands-on professional, Steve Harris not only formed Iron Maiden, he writes the bulk of their songs, plays multiple instruments, mixes recordings, directs and edits both live and production videos, and sings. As if that wasn’t enough, Steve somehow finds time for British Lion, which he describes as a side project that’s more mainstream rock than metal.

When it comes to Steve’s rig, surprisingly it has barely changed in almost 40 years. What has never changed is his handmade custom pre-amp, the “Alectron,” as well as his prized custom vintage Marshall cabs loaded with EV speakers. Since it wasn’t practical to travel with his full rig for smaller venues, Steve turned to Tech 21. He was out on tour with British Lion when he received the original SH1 prototype and had this to say:
"The tour is going fantastic. And the reason it's going fantastic is this little thing here. It's unbelievable. [Andrew Barta] is a real boffin*. Because he's managed to simulate my EV speaker sounds, which I love so much. And it's in this little box. Whatever he's done, he's made this thing sound like my sound. So, well done, mate."

While this collaboration began as a solution for touring with British Lion, the SH1 earned a place as a component of his live sound on Iron Maiden's Legacy of the Beast 2019 tour.
