THE STEVE STEVENS PLATINUM COLLECTION
When you think ‘quintessential rock tone’, packed to the rafters with one-of-a-kind character, and a mainstay on some of the world’s all-time best-selling records, Steve Stevens exists in a class of his own.
Considered one of the most original players to emerge from the ’80s rock scene, and long time collaborator with Billy Idol (a co-writer of such greats including “Rebel Yell”, “Eyes Without A Face” and “Flesh for Fantasy”), Steve has cemented himself as a veritable pillar at the leading edge of pristine guitar sonics.
Whether it’s his seminal performance on Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana”, his iconic Grammy Award winning performance on “Top Gun Anthem”, or his work with Vince Neil on “Exposed”, Steve’s unmistakable sound is often imitated but never surpassed.
With his inaugural Two notes DynIR release – “The Steve Stevens Platinum Collection” – Steve empowers you with the fundamental component of his tone-bending knowhow; an exquisite collection of 5 hard-to-come-by and “certified classic” cabs in his expansive collection.
Devising Steve’s inaugural DynIR release demanded a special-recipe deserving of this icon in the modern world of guitar-driven virtuosity. First, the venue: San Fernando Valley’s illusive state-of-the-art recording space, Studio 606. Next, the console: the legendary Neve 8028 recording console from Sound City. Then, the all-important cabinets: five hand-picked 4×12’s from Steve’s personal collection.
Steve’s iconic Scumback® Purple Raygun cabinet? It’s here! A super-rare V30-loaded 1971 Marshall® Basketweave 4×12 cab (complete with Jim Marshall’s hand-drawn signature)? Oh Yes! What about the V30-equipped 1980’s Marshall® 4×12 cab that graced the seminal Top Gun Anthem and Michael Jackson’s Dirty Dianna? How could we not include it!
In short, this is no run-of-the-mill cabinet release. This is the embodiment of Steve’s legendary tone, primed and ready to empower players of all walks with top-flight sonics.

Oozing with iconic mid-range attack and a silky smooth top-end, Steve’s worn-in V30 is the final destination for players seeking tight punchy chords and a scorching-hot lead tone. Top this off with a vintage Marshall Basketweave cab, and the resultant sonics are an unmatched force to be reckoned with. It’s larger than life. It’s harmonically rich in all the right places. It’s super versatile, covering everything from high-gain means to sultry cleans.

Brace yourself, we’re about to hit the apex of platinum-rated signature tone. This is the cabinet used for Steve’s immaculate tones on the Top Gun Anthem and Michael Jackson’s seminal Dirty Diana.
STEVENS PURPLE RAYGUN 412 DL
The Stevens Purple Raygun 412 DL is captured from – and inspired by – Steve’s iconic Scumback® Purple Raygun cabinet, outfitted with a quartet of David Laboga® MAMZER30 drivers.
Packing an expertly-tuned frequency response, a ballsy fat midrange and a tight, controlled low end, the MAMZER30 exists in a class of its own. Designed to replicate the primo sonics from its 12-inch counterparts, whilst leaving any undesirable artefacts by the wayside, these speakers are a unique triumph unto themselves.

The Stevens SilverSonic 212 Jen C12 is captured from – and inspired by – Steve’s vintage Sears® Silvertone® 2×12, outfitted with original Jensen® C12 drivers.
Fusing unrelenting headroom, an exquisite balanced frequency response and lush saturated overtones – all capped with a touch of vibey mid-range bite – this speaker is primed for everything from well-rounded cleans to ball-bustin’ means. The 2×12 adds resonance and sustain to empower players with exceptional response and dispersion; all without sacrificing the dynamic articulation your performance demands
STEVENS BRITMALIBUS 412 BLACK
The Stevens BritMalibus 412 Black is captured from – and inspired by – Steve’s vintage late 70’s straight Marshall® cab, outfitted with original Celestion® G12M’s BlackBack Drivers.
Featuring a broad mid-range attack fused with a capped top-end, the G12M pushes a power-fuelled punchy attitude to chords and a scorching hot lead tone to boot. Top this off with a tight controlled low end and it’s the perfect companion for low-powered amps and high-power rock-ready heads alike. The 70’s-born 4×12 adds power and depth, empowering you with a harmonically rich palette that’s as versatile as it’s tonally-distinct.
