    My Pigno amp

    I love my Pignose amp. Use it everyday (week days). Had to get this new one because the batteries leaked in the old one. I use the a/c adapter primarily and now I keep the batteries in containers in the amp so I can use them when I need them.

    GREAT, Classic Amp

    This little guy kicks butt.

    If you want something clean, keep it mellow, about 25% max, in the Volume Department, and you'll be fine ... on the beach.

    If you want something amped, you're good up until about 40% for a light combo situation, but you'll need a PA beyond that.

    For a casual great amp, get one of these. You simply can't go wrong.

    IT'S LESS THAN $100!!

    Couldn't be happier!

    The amp sounds great for our beginner guitar player. However, customer service is what really blew me away! I received a phone call and several email checking on my product and satisfaction! Will definitely use Sweetwater for our musical needs!

    Great sound in a small package

    It's pretty amazing how much character and volume this little amp can bring to a session! It's a great deal for what it is.

    This allows me to travel with my guitar

    I 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!

    after researchin, chose the pignose!

    so i wanted to buy a portable amp to take with me when I go on walks, so I looked up, reviewed, and compared several other models. I chose thise because all I read and heard was positive things. people complained there isn't a clean channel, there is but it isn't as oud as id like it to be, where as the distorted chanel was louder. over all very happy for my purchase from Sweetwater, an awesome Co.

    Little Pignose does a fine job

    These little amps sound amazing with the distortion they provide. They get surprisingly loud for their very small size. I had one many years ago and finally decided to get another one. The old one had a spring piece that kept the power adapter in it's place. This new one does not and the power adapter flops around inside. I added some Velcro to the adapter and the little place where the adapter fits and it worked just fine, it was an easy fix. I have hooked up my smart phone to it and somehow it does not sound distorted? I find this amazing too. I still wish they were more quite when turned on and not playing music. It's a great deal for those guitar players that have little money and little space . . . oh that's most of us! Sweetwater got it to me even before they said it would arrive. I think the power adapter should be included when it's sold, just charge ten dollars more and be done with it.

    The best little amp around. This is my second one. Durable, compact, versatile, and fantastic sound. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is my first AC adapter didn't last very long. Also, what can I say about Sweetwater? They're the best! Fast and easy! I used to buy from another popular internet company that had pathetic customer service. Once I tried Sweetwater, I was hooked. Thanks Sweetwater!

    Ideal travel amp

    As 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.

    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.
