The Pignose Legendary 7-100 Portable Amp is their original portable practice amp, complete with pig-snout on/off switch and volume control. The case opens for easy access to the amplifier's speaker and other insides. You can even have a friend fan the case open and closed for a wah-wah effect! The Legendary Pignose Amp also offers a preamp out jack for plugging those classic distortion sounds into an external power amp, PA, or recording console. This little Pignose is a quality-built amp with metal corner protectors, tough covering, and a rugged 6" speaker. The portable Pignose Legendary 7-100 weighs just 5 lbs. and runs on batteries or its optional power supply.
From the Manufacturer
The Pignose guitar amplifier is the answer to the worldwide demand for a high quality, economical and completely portable amplifier. It's powered by six pen light batteries or by an AC 9 volt converter (optional) which can be stored inside the amplifier case. Pignose gives the electric guitar the same mobility as the acoustic. Pignose weighs only five pounds. You can attach a standard guitar strap and sling it over your shoulder.
It's a Practice Amp Practice time doesn't always coincide with access to a power source and a large equipment supply. And you don't always want to practice at high volume. With Pignose, anywhere you practice, (hotel room. garage, limo, kitchen, dressing room or a place in the park), becomes your rehearsal hall.
It's a First Amp For the student guitarist, Pignose is the ideal first amplifier. It combines economy with quality. Pignose will never outlive its usefulness as a faithful and dependable travelling, practice and recording amplifier. In addition, Pignose has a preamp outjack which makes it possible to play the Pignose through a large and more powerful amplifier. Many professional musicians have been using Pignose as a preamp while performing.
It's a Performing Amp The Pignose sound has proved so desirable that it now appeas in live performance. It's not a question of hooking 600 Pignose in series: it's done by playing into a singular Pignose and amplifying the result with the usual host of amplifiers.
It's a Studio Amp If there's a situation where sound is critical, it's in the studio. That is where Pignose will really surprise you. Pignose works in the studio for the Real Pros. For example, on any album, a guitar can first be played into Pignose, then into the board.
It's Not Just a Guitar Amp Any instrument you can amplify you can play through a Pignose, including your own voice.

This pig nose is fun to play and it's very portable. I've got a small inline gate so I can prevent feedback even if I push the volume up on the amp and mic. This gives me a lot of different effects I can apply depending on the volume controls.
At church I use a guitar strap to hold the amp to my chair then I use the fireball mic with a boom as the pickup for this amp. That gives me 3 different volume controls for the mix before it hits the house. I also have a couple effect channels but I find the sound off this amp and the different effects I can generate with the volume control to be sufficient.
The sound isn't correct for a lot of the songs in a church worship service, so often I play directly into the Fireball still, but we do play a lot of songs that have more of a blues/rock sound so this makes the perfect sound.
When I push the volume on both the mic and amp then play hard with a strong mic cup I can get that dark and dirty natural overdrive that is signature to the blues.
My only complaint is it doesn't come with the power supply. I know a lot of pedal accessories don't but I feel like an amp really should. The instructions even assume you've got the power supply. It suggests that identifying when to replace the batteries requires the power supply. The recommendation is to play a sustained note then turn off the power supply. If the note changes in volume the batteries need to be replaced.
You must have fresh batteries installed or use a DC adapter to get the best tone, and while this amp is quite loud for it's size, it doesn't suffer too much tone loss when you turn it down, nor does the speaker flab and fart about when you crank it. Using single coils will net a nice clean tone, with a nice crunchy Overdrive when cranked. Humbuckers obviously will drive the amp harder, but I am still able to get great tone with the amp when it screams.
If you're contemplating a portable amp, and want an amp with real tone, rather than an amp with outrageous overdrive, get this amp, don't even bother looking at any other portable amps. Even the portable Fender amps can't make clean tones like this one.
The Amp seemed quite solidly built, and it produced a good volume of sound for its size for the short time that it worked properly. There is only a volume control to play with and sound goes from almost "clean" to "overdriven" when you go low to high volume settings. Turning tone controls down on the ukulele and having the volume at about one third on the Pignose gave a fairly "clean" sound.
I am worried about the high number of other one star reviews I have since read about Pignose Legendary amps, and suspect there may be quality issues. Based on my own bad experience and what I have read, I would strongly recommend other people to buy something else!
