Anything similar to Pignose?
I have a Pignose Hog 30 practice amp and love the sound. I really like the clarity, and punch for its size.
My current gig set-up is:
Acoustic B600H and GK backline cabs (2X10 and 1X15).
I am looking to upgrade my head and/or cab to replicate the sound of the Pignose, but just get more juice out of it to support a band setting (2 guitars, drums, bass, keys). I've looked into the Pignose B-100V head, but not sure if that is enough power. I'm open to tube or solid state. Let me know if you know of any comparable amp/cab combos.
I think this is as small as it gets http://www.ehx.com/products/44-magnum
Look for a used G-K 200MB combo from the mid- to late-'80s. Phenomenal tone and surprising volume from a tiny package. Just make sure the speaker is in good shape, as the original Pyle drivers tend to have problems with the foam disintegrating.
Thanks for the recommendations. I should have gave more info, sorry!
I'm looking for a full size rig (head or amp combo) that will give me a similar sound (punchy, great clarity) that the Pignose Hog 30 gives.
1) Mic it
2) Use it as a preamp, running the Hog30 headphone out to your existing amp,, as suggested by Hog30 factory instruction
3) Use it as a preamp, running the Hog30 headphone out to a DI to FOH, as suggested by Hog30 factory instruction
4) Identify Hog30 tonal characteristics that you enjoy, and replicate them with your rig using EQ
Let us know your solution, if/when you find it.
the 100 watt valve head isnt gonna sound ss pignose, it's gonna sound like the ampeg b4
i had good luck with the old marshall ibs and dbs heads getting a kind of warm/punchy and clear ss tone
if you want to go tube the 200 watt mesas are pretty quick and punchy
@mpdd - Do you know the model name for Mesa?
i use a d180, but the buster is supposed to be great too
