When metal’s most legendary P-Bass player needs a pickup that is both detailed and powerful, you accept the challenge.
Originally developed in our Custom Shop for Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris, this pickup is special for many reasons. Working closely with Steve we crafted a P-bass pickup with a low-mid boost that adds punch and body while maintaining a crisp and clear high-end attack. This design uses hand-ground Alnico 5 rod magnets and a special vintage-hot custom wind of 13k Ohms to achieve its uniquely aggressive bite.
“I was having some problems with the original pickups in my bass and Seymour Duncan said they could make pickups that did what I needed – and they did!,” Steve said.
We are honored to be working with such a legend. Handcrafted in Santa Barbara, CA, the Steve Harris P-Bass pickup uses hand ground Alnico 5 rod magnets, Forbon flatwork and is vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation.
