OVERVIEW

Legendary Pignose portable practice amp.

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.

It is light, loud, wireless. I might take this thing outside and play. It's like an amp that can be taken to a party or a friend's house or a band practice without any hassle. It is just so portable. And great for AC/DC, White Stripes, (some) Led Zeppelin, and sure even some Jazz. It sounds nice and creamy on the neck pickup. I just wish I could bring down the mids and add some lows to the tone, but I'll be getting an EQ pedal soon so it won't be a problem for me.
Just a single knob. Volume stays the same when the knob reaches about 3/4s turned, and from there on it just adds overdrive. The first five minutes of fooling around with this thing I was extremely dissapointed. It is tiny. I mean so, so small. But then I learned how loud it is. I play in front of my high school in the gymnasium every month or so, and I am sure this thing would be loud enough. I also like that there is space inside the amp for cables. The DC out or whatever is wierd though. It didn't fit my Danelectro AC DC adapter or the one that came with my electro harmonix freeze, so I was forced to use 6 AA batteries. And an EQ knob would have been nice. At least something to lower the mids.
Built like a small, leather bomb shelter. I'm sure it'll last awhile. Haven't had mine long enough to learn how long the 6 AA batteries will last though. Tone is good but it's just so much mid range that it is only good for rock and roll. This is only my second amp (my other one is a Fender Frontman 65r) and this little guy holds up (volume wise) with the 65 watts of the fender. But I noticed that my fuzz pedal behaves differently with this amp, like it is more fierce and bright. Also, there is a lot of pop in this thing. Like if I were to hit a string hard (like I usually do) then there would be a popping sound. Nothing a compressor couldn't fix though. Overdrive is great! I just wish I didn't have to turn the up so dang loud to get it. Otherwise I would disturb my parents.
I would pay a hundred dollars more than what it is priced at for this amp. It sounds great.

Even the greatest legends will fade with quality control issues. If it wasn't for my pigheadedness I would have sent this amp back. The battery pack was not installed correctly and thus the AA batteries would not properly connect, leaving this amp with no power because of the gaps. As a result my first impression of this amp was dead on arrival. However, a little tinfoil goes a long way and with a couple of sheets stuck between the batteries and the battery connectors this amp was ready to go. I've had no other issues and will keep it despite the defects. Buyer beware!

      Comments about Pignose Legendary 7-100 Portable Amp:

      I really like this small amp. I did purchase the optional AC wall adapter. I haven't used it yet as the batteries are doing fine. A perfect small amp to have in the home or at the campground or any outside small venue. Worth every penny in my opinion. Try it, you'll like it.

        Comments about Pignose Legendary 7-100 Portable Amp:

        In my opinion, what makes this amp so great is it's combination of portability, tone, and it's AMAZING Preamp-out. You really cannot do any better for this steal of a price. This amp is perfect for home practice and travel featuring low volumes, small size, light weight, and the option of using 6 AA batteries or an adapter. Where I feel this amp really shines is it's preamp out. Want to get Clapton Esque "Layla" tones? How about a fuzzy Frank Zappa tone? This amp can do that and more. I take the Preamp out and plug it directly in to my Acoustic 120 DSP's guitar low input, dime the Piggy and, with minor tweaking to the tone knobs of the amp, make 'er squeal! I have yet to try it direct into the board, but I'm sure it's equally as awesome. The trick is to use your volume and tone knobs to acquire the tone you desire. Oink, Oink!

        Comments about Pignose Legendary 7-100 Portable Amp:

        My wife bought this as a stocking stuffer and I am very critical of equipment. I have been playing guitar since I was 8 (am now approaching 66) but remembered a good friend of mine (Nashville studio musician) bought one when they first came out. I remembered being in his studio and compared mine with what I remembered. The price was about the same and were made the same, although I do think his quality was inferior. Soundwise, however, mine actually is stronger. Their marketing obviously has gotten better, but for all the products out there allowing you to play through iphones, it has a substantial feel and very basic and raw tech appeal. I am a jazz player and tried jazz boxes, acoustics and even my classicals on it. With acoustics, turn off any piezo treble, middle and bass.I got a clean sound on my jazz boxes only if I turned way down. Crunch with my solid bodies was no problem. Besides guitar, however, I am a fan of blues harmonica ( and somewhat of a player) and the Pignose with a mike (green bullet or less) makes this an ideal little portable blues harp amp.

          I wish I had gotten one of these years ago! Great little portable/practice amp. Very sturdy, gets plenty loud. By using the volume on the amp in combination with your guitar's volume and pickup selectors, you can dial in anything from a warm clean tone to a classic rock overdrive. Cool features include the guitar strap buttons on the sides, and the storage space inside the amp. There is enough room in there for a long instrument cable and a power adaptor! Your whole travel rig fits into this one package. Buy the Pignose power adaptor so you can save on batteries while practicing at home in front of the TV!

          Comments about Pignose Legendary 7-100 Portable Amp:

          Absolutely an amazing amp with incredible sound and is also very good looking and built solid.

          It is loud. I play it about level 3 and my guitar at 7 and its as loud as I would ever want. This sounds better than my mid size Amp that cost me a lot more. I am surprised beyond expectations on how good this small amp is. It works perfect on 6 AA batteries or on the optional AC 9 Volt Adapter.

          If you buy the AC Adapter make sure you buy one made by Pignose with the Pignose name on it. I bought one first as advertised for the Pignose Amp but was not an actual Pignose Adapter and the problem with those type are that you will hear a very loud hum on your amp that will annoy you to no end. With the real Pignose adapter the hum is non exsistent.

            Bought this with the intention of just using it for jam sessions and practice in my house. I have used it for just that and also brought it camping.
            This thing really produces an amazing sound.

            The only thing that was a little disappointing is that the power adapter isn't included in the package. But I guess that also reduces the cost.

            This amp is a must have for any musician. Got someone that plays that doesn't have one? Gift it, and they will be forever thankful. This little jewel is just perfect for sitting around the house strumming plugged in, keep it low. And when you a ready to turn it up, get ready for volume that you won't believe from this 5 pound box. Very solidly made. Only issue was when I first put in the batteries, I had no sound, but after moving ( l-r) 4-6 back into the holder, it worked. Have to be a little nimble and patient the first time you load up the 6 AA and get the 'feel' for how they 'click' in. In the small amp category, this one is the KING.
