Brown Pignose Amp.It is great for what it is. I think it breaks up too soon, but you can easily get clean tone by turning the volume control on your guitar down. The distortion sounds more like a bad speaker with single coil PUPs. I haven't tried it with humbuckers yet. I believe the tone will get better when I hook it up to a larger speaker cab. To be fair, it's brand new and the speaker is not broken-in yet. It is pretty amazing for a practice amp. I read somewhere that Jimi Hendrix recorded with one, so I might be completely wrong about it's ability with single coils. I do recommend this amp. It is versatile, very portable, and worth every cent! I don't know why I took so long to try one.

Ideal travel ampAs everyone is aware, the iconic Pignose amp is an ideal travel/practice amp. A very loud 5 watts! Put this in my personal carry-on bag when flying. I use either a Line 6 Verbzilla or Echo Park with this, works great.

This allows me to travel with my guitarI bought this amp simply because it was small and easy to travel with.No other reason . I had already consigned myself to thinking I was going to have to sacrifice in sound quality . When I received the amp I could not believe what I was hearing . It sounds as good as my other larger amps . The volume is completely adequate and when you use it as a preamp the sound quality evan gets better. I am 100% satisfied with this little amp.

Piggin' Out On Tone!!!At the price these are now, everyone should own a Pignose... I knew what I wanted in a practice amp and this couldn't be better. Most people refer to these as one trick pony's... Compared to all of the modern features found on amplifiers these day's it's easy to agree with them.. However, the reason I chose the Pignose is because it does exactly what I want it to, it amplifies the tone of my Les Paul and allows me to practice at "Non-Wall Shaking" volumes... I own a Peavey Vypyr 15 and a Fender GDec, both great for practicing as well, but they always tempt me to incrementally raise the volume until the house is filled with GUITAR!!!... Even cranked, the Pignose hardly achieves annoying volumes and everyone is happy... In fact the other night I had the urge to play at 1 in the morning, wound up playing for two hours in the living room with great tone and all the while not disturbing a single sleeping soul in the house... It's simple, practical, portable and offers a great solid state tone... Cleans up by rolling back the volume on your guitar... Who knows, I may even do a little busking around town... Anyways, Great little amp! Classic!
