The Tone of the Beast! The Steve Harris SBP4 Precision bass pickup uses Alnico 5 rod magnets and a unique vintage-hot coil wind that delivers a forceful sound with pushed mid range and tight bass and treble response. Measuring in at 13k DC resistance, the SPB4 is more dynamic and sensitive to Steve's unique two finger playing style and drives the preamp section of an amplifier hard without clipping.
For Steve's sound use a bass made with an Alder body and Maple neck. The tone will be just as fierce with an ash body or with a Rosewood fingerboard.
