Hiwatt Custom 100 DR103 and WEM Super Starfinder 200

1971 - 1978

During most of the 70s Roger's rig consisted of Hiwatt Custom 100 DR103s and WEM Super Starfinder 200 (4x12) cabinets. This setup would last utnil about 1978 when Phil Taylor built him a new Phase Linear 700 amplified bass rig.

In the 1970 the band also used HH Electronic IC-100 solid state amps, setting them as pre-amps (see the Live at Pompeii). Roger also used one on One of These Days for the echoed tremolo effect (see 2:00 - 2:30 on studio recordings). The IC-100s was later replaced with Alembic F2-B amplifiers to serve the same purpose.

On the below picture you can see Roger's rig he used during the live performance of The Dark Side of the Moon at Brighton in 1972 - a Hiwatt amp, HH Electronic IC-100 pre-amp, and Binson Echorec on top.
