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.

    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 use this amp to play Harmonica and it sounds great. I use a Shure model 520dx mic and play outdoors a lot. It is easy to use and I really like the fact that it is portable and rechargeable.

            Do not let the amp sit too long (2 or 3 months) without recharging the battery as the battery will die and will not recharge. It holds good charge though and last will long on a charge while using.

            Comments about Pignose Hog 20 Amp:

            Purchased this for a little accoustic amplification outdoors. It does that but not much more. Turning up the volume does little good for an accoustic guitar because of the 'buzz'. This might be okay for a blues player that needs some dirt but not for an accoustic guitar. Other reviews say they use headphones but why do that when with a simple app and a $30.00 adapter I can plug my strat into my phone and use headphones with a much better sound?
