Created way back in 1972 and famously used by Frank Zappa, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin and many others, the Pignose 7-100 guitar amplifier was the answer to a worldwide demand for a high quality, economical and completely portable amplifier and it gives the electric guitar the same mobility as the acoustic weighing only five pounds!
If you want you can also attach a standard guitar strap and sling one over your shoulder, take it out on the street and earn a few quid!
Powered by six AA batteries (not included) or by an external AC adapter (not included) which can then be stored inside the amplifier case.
It's a Practice Amp: With a Pignose, you can practice anywhere at any time. It features a full array of tones from clean to crunchy.
It's a First Amp: The Pignose 7-100 combines economy with quality and will never outlive its usefulness when you buy up to bigger amps. It will always be handy for traveling and for working on quick ideas on the road. And it has a pre amp out jack!
It's a Studio and Performing Amp: The Pignose 7-100 sound is so good that many players use it as a preamp in stage and studio performances. This is done by sending the pre amp out signal to a bigger amp or PA (for stage performances) or to the recording console (for recording).
It's the Ultimate Portable Amp: This is the one that started it all more than thirty years ago.

Get tones from clean to pig-filthy with the turn of the coolest volume knob in the world.

(all the above superlatives are of course by Pignose - we are a little more reserved and we simply think that this is a superb go-anywhere and sturdy little amp that is always going to be a useful and fun bit of kit to own - and with a great vintage vibe - and just like the guitars, we think every home should have one).
