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.
It has been suggested that the Hog30 is actually a *3-watt amp. Here are some possible recipes for Hog30 tone, with added volume:
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.
