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.

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:

    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.

        Had one of these in prison. Small, so it didn't take up too much room in my little house (cell). Open it up for more treble response. Great White Buffalo never sounded so good . . . on C Block.

          Comments about Pignose Legendary 7-100 Portable Amp:

          Bought as a practice amp to take on the go and to use as a direct preamp for recording. Sounds great through the little speaker and great range of tone by opening and closing the box. Extremely loud for such a little amp. Battery power at least on my unit a little dodgy, but DC power via a wall adapter works flawlessly.

              Great little amp for a practice rig or take a line out into the PA for a full on gig. Stick a 'bottle o blues' mike in and blow that harp! Excellent sound from such a small package. Using it for practice and then line out into a tube amp for a real gig...great piece of kit!

                  I keep this in my living room so can practice anytime. I play blues and blues rock, the tone is perfect for that style! Simple operation, turn the volume knob (the pigs nose) and adjust the tone by opening or closing the amp. WHAT? Yes, think of the amp as a small suitcase. When the amp is filly closed, you get a muffled old blues bassy tone. When the case is opened, you get a more full range tone. It's fun to play around with this. I like the case opened about a 1/2". It's a classic!

                  Simply put, what you see is what you get. I picked one of these up because I wanted to give a battery-powered amp a shot and was particularly drawn to this thing's style. The main factors in the 5-star rating are the amps portability and apparent durability (I've only had it about a week). The only downside seems to be limited function, as it only has one control knob and the rest is up to you to toggle your guitar in conjunction with said lone knob. This thing rocks though, its perfect for practicing when you don't want to deal with your heavier/more cumbersome gear. Oh yea, and the 6 AAs are not included, nor is the 9V adapter. Still, I recommend this little guy for sure.

                  The amp was nearly impossible to open on arrival. It seemed glued shut and took a lot of effort to get it open the first time, as if it was vacuum sealed in China. Now it's fine. I can't believe what again it is to swap batteries. They could have improved on this after 40 years!

                    I absolutely love this amp. I was tossing between this and another portable amp that was really nice also,
                    but this amp just has "personality".
                    Simple to use, turn the volume up, adjust the knobs on your guitar to suit your taste in sound - and off you go!
                    Open it up to get a completely different tone and sound.
                    It does have a very "Delta Blues" sound to it, so if you are in to that sort of playing, check this amp out.
