Tech 21 has introduced the Steve Harris SH1 Signature SansAmp, which aims to recreate the Iron Maiden bassist’s classic sound – built around his 1980s-era custom-made Alectron pre-amp and vintage Marshall cabs loaded with EV speakers – in pedal form.

The SH1, which was designed as a more portable version of Harris’ rig for use with his side project, British Lion, boasts two channel modes with individual gain and level controls. There’s also a four-band active EQ with a cut or boost of ±18dB.
