    I spoke with a guy on Tue who said this is in development. Anyone else hear anything about this?

    It is real! Please see @Savage_Dreams post #18 below.

    That would probably a small board, as he only uses a Trace Preamp, a compressor and power amp.

    That's what I was wondering. However, the guy I spoke to said he got the info from Harris' bass tech, so it seemed to be legit.

    It will tickle my GAS nerve for sure.

    I can imagine it could be the size of the Doug Pinnick Fly rig, with on button for the comp, on for the tuner, and one to bypass the preamp section.

    Will it be blue and chrome, or with with a soccer crest :D ?

    If it actually is going to sounds like a Trace Elliot and is cheaper than the Trace Elliot Transit B preamp, which I guess it most likely will be, though undoubtedly also with fever features, I might actually be interested, unless Steve is a fan of the Trace Elliot mid scooped Shape EQ preset button.

    Steve's tone is ANYTHING but mid scooped.

    Curious about this, especially since he's never really used anything in the way of FX (aside from Compression).

    I like Harris but I will wait for either the John Entwistle or John Paul Jones Fly rig. ( I won't hold my breath)

  9. Tbh this kinda seems like an April fools. I mean Steve isn't really known for anything other than his clean tone. However I remember that at some point he did use custom hiwatt clones and as tech 21 do the Leeds (and it's great on bass) it wouldn't be beyond the realm of possibility for it to use the Leeds in there.

    The dude who gave me the info seems to be a pretty solid guy. I don't think it was a joke.

    I thought his regular rig was his flyrig. Well it fits on the band's own aeroplane...
