I have always wanted to own a Pignose and now I have one! Gotta say, for the money, you can't beat it! Nice and solid feeling, pretty thick sound for a rechargeable. I use it as a practice amp on the patio. I have a Digitech RP150 and a Silvertone Les Paul knockoff that adds a different dimension to the sound. Gives it that garage rock feel. I'll mic it and BOOM!! Can't go wrong for the money, just play with it and you'll see. A must have for the price!

I had one of the original pignoses until it crapped out after about 10 years. A cool little amp for the time and very usable for practice.I had higher expectations for the Hog 20, which weren't realized. Other companies are offering more bang for the buck now.The Hog 20 is an adequate practice amp, but I have found that above 6, the volume level produces unpleasant distortion and electronic hum. Not to mention the metal screen over the speaker vibrates annoyingly. The usable distortion is somewhat thin.Some may find this amp perfectly adequate. In fact I've had some fun with it using tele, strat and LP.But there is so much out there in terms of Asian-built low price amps with numerous features, I would try several before buying.

      Comments about Pignose Hog 20 Amp:

      I've read the glowing reviews and I just don't see it. First off, is it portable? The size says yes, the weight says no. I can only imagine it's called the "Hog" because ut weighs so much. It's over 12 pounds! You know those UPS backup power supplies used for computers? This thing has two of those batteries, it's heavy. Instead if engineering it to be user friendly they slapped stickers on the batteries telling you all the stuff you have to do to keep them from "dying young". Great message to read on your amp! Oh, and if you want to bring the charger along, that's 2 more pounds and it's the size of a brick.

      The sound? I guess the clean sound is usable. Nothing special though. The overdrive "Squeal" is useless. It really makes to difference to the tone until you crank it. Then it starts to sound like playing a fuzz box underwater. I don't know any songs where that comes in handy. It sound like a blown speaker (btw, my speaker is fine, I checked).

      So overall, I hate this thing. It's heavy, ugly and has no useable sounds. I can't imagine anyone giving it a five star review. They can't be talking about this amp.

            Great little amp for the money. My favorite thing about this amp is the quick recharge time of the baateries ratio to playing time. If I lost this amp, I'd definitely get another to replace.

              I use it with a Boss me 70 which adds character which makes it good for small venues or you can mike it through a PA & have a blast. So far so good on dependability if used right read directions.

                  If the batteries die after years of use go to radio shack & you can solder new ones in so you have it like new again!

                      I had heard good things but when I purchased and tried it does not cut the mustard. I only play acoustic music mainly bluegrass. Hoped it could cover the bass does not have the presence of a
                      standup acoustic bass, so what is the point.
                      Very disappointed. I am going to purchase a Cube bass battery amp.
