Alex's Hiwatt Amps


Recommended Posts

Howdy fellow RUSHians...


Wondering if some of you knowledgable folks know which Hiwatts Alex was using around the late 70s....I think its mentioned around the time of A Farewell to Kings / Permanent Waves. Some say its the DR103, some say it's the Canadian version DR105 with different gain staging and I recently read someone batting around the idea of the DR504.

"Did you keep the Hiwatts for Permanent Waves?

Actually, on that album I used a number of different amp combinations. I used a Mesa/Boogie to drive a Marshall cabinet, a 100-watt Hiwatt head to power both a Hiwatt and a Marshall cabinet, and a Marshall Mark II head driving a Marshall cabinet with four 12" Celestions. Add to all that a Leslie with a Hiwatt head, which I also used on Hemisphere,. and that's about it for amps.
