30+ Years Recording & Sound Engineer, Musician

While many of the new modeling amps have found a way a into the market and do offer many different effects and features. The Pignose 7-100 is different. It offers you a tool to learn about your guitar with great sound and portability. it offers you ways of learning to create and experience different sound & tones by opening its Box. It offers a professional fuzz and a great clean sound. The 7-100 has a great preamp out feature that most modeling amps do not offer nor have the quality that the 7-100 has a way of driving your tube amp or PA.. So its Great for live or recording The 7-100 takes pedals very well unlike most modeling amps. Very Portable, Durable, long Battery Life, Simple yet Very Professional. 7-100 has a past legendary history.
I have several different Amps but I will always have 2 of these when I travel.

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.

    Comments about Pignose Legendary 7-100 Portable Amp:

    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.

    If tone is in your fingers, this is your amp.

    Comments about Pignose Legendary 7-100 Portable Amp:

    OK, it doesn't really deserve 5/5 for features as it only has an on/off/volume knob and a hinged case. But that's missing the point ;-)What it has got is terrific mojo, and a great sound. If you use it just with your guitar's volume and tone knobs, your pick attack or finger feel, you will learn far more about getting the tone you want than just dialling up setting Blues-36 on some modeling amp. Modeling amps are great, but this little fellow makes you create the tone with your fingers and the guitar's pots. It should have a place in any serious guitar student's practice armory.

      Comments about Pignose Legendary 7-100 Portable Amp:

      First off I have known & Used these Amps since the 70's. I have several Pignose Amps. USA &, made in Japan & some China.

      As a practice amp. 1. This amp will allow you to learn and focus on your guitar better. With this amp it is true blue (no modeling nothing fake here that will limit or isolate your sound. 2. you can learn how to get a more natural recording with proper mic, and location as well as a pre amp source that will drive your PA or Larger tube amp better than any stomp box. 3. Using this to record with this or play live you have to know a bit and practice with the Pignose to get those professional tones but its certainly obtainable. Although with some guitars you may have to select or even adjust your pickups for a super clean recording but once again( your learning about your guitar) going to a buddy's or a party to jam I have found I only need to bring my Pignose and maybe an effects pedal with a good PA. I have used more than 1 Pignose and at times and actually surprised some very talented old school street musicians that were using the new very pricy powerful Roland Cube. 2 of the guys were shocked at the sound I was getting out of the little amp next to their $$ amps. I may not have had the volume but what they liked was tone of the Amp and that is all you need to record and for live with that great tone a good PA or a clean Tube Amp of course preamp out. I should mention unlike most modeling amps the Pignose takes stomp boxes great. Portable & Travel the size speaks for itself.
      If your wanting a bit more power and not portable a nice little Tube Amp try is the G40V Pignose. I ran my 7-100 into it and it got great clean, tones blues with most all the controls down accept the master the growl to me sounds much better using the Pignose preamp into it. If you buy this little amp just to preamp into your main stage amp it will bring out more beauty from your amp that no pedal will offer.

      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.

      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.

      Comments about Pignose Legendary 7-100 Portable Amp:

      This product did not work at all with batteries, and was not audible to the player on the AC adapter. In order to hear anything out of it, someone needed to be right next to the amp speaker, which kind of precludes being able to use this for practice (or anything else).

      Unfortunately, I didn't open mine and try it until the return window had expired, so I'm out all that money. If you buy this, try it right away - they obviously have quality control issues!

        If your looking for a great harmonica amp this is the one to use, doesn't cost a fortune and has the overdriven sound that every harp guy or gal tries to find with amp's. This Pignose amp is extremely loud,look's will fool you with this little baby, it's a beast.

        In Love with a Pignose

        Who couldn't love this little guy? He's small, but very sturdy. He has a nice strong voice -- just right for fooling around at home.

        Battery power makes him sweet. And the power adapter makes him dependable.

        I like the way that the way he turns off power when he knows you're not there--when you don't have anything plugged in. Totally user-friendly.

        As a guitar player, I really don't see any reason at all why you wouldn't own one of these. I own two of them, and I'm about to buy the tweed version. These things are pure gold. Sure...you're not going to blow the roof off of Madison Square Garden with it, but it's a very rock n' roll little nugget of an amp. With a good guitar and/or pickups this little piggy can wail all the way home. My Double Fat Strat plays like a dream through my Pignose. So...just buy one and play it until your fingers and your ears hurt.
