The Pignose amp, now known as the "Legendary 7-100", is a battery-powered, 5-watt portable guitar amplifier with one 5" speaker. It was invented by Richard Edlund and Wayne Kimbell in 1969. The Pignose weighs five pounds and includes buttons for a guitar strap; it is considered the first portable electric guitar amplifier. The 'legend' was established when the inventors gave 65 prototypes (with flexible rubber Pignose volume knobs) to some of the most famous musicians of the era, including Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Eagles, and The Who.
The first production Pignose amps debuted at the '73 NAMM Convention in Chicago. The original Pignose 7-100 is still in production and is used primarily as a portable practice amp. It has also found a role in recording studios, having been used on records by Joe Walsh, Eric Clapton and Frank Zappa.
The Hog 30 is the giant of the Pignose family. Boasting a full 30 Watts through an 8 inch speaker the Hog 30 is a battery amp with the power to amplify a wide range of instruments and mikes.
The front panels features volume and master volume copntrols, three band EQ (Bass, Mid and Treble) and a special "Funk Bass" switch for extra punch and depth when using as a bass amp.
Use the Hog 30 for guitar, acoutsic guitar, bass or as a vocal PA - it can handle them all! Runs on batteries which last for hours, or use the included AC Adaptor.
