    Pignose: Solid State School

    Hey y'all-
    Got a bunch of Pignose amps, solid state from the late 70's. I'll explain:
    There's a 30/60 Head that is kinda sounds like a large version of the 7-100. Classic orange covering. Controls: preamp vol., treble, mid, bass, master vol., 2 inputs, fx send and return, line out, spkr jack 8 ohms. It has same gain/tone as that battery powered portable y'all have, and because you can use eq and your own speaker cabinet it has a larger more full sound, but kinda the same. I say it's 'Fendery', use it for a vintagey tone.
    I have a couple 60-R Studio Reverb combos. Same controls plus reverb, no spkr jack. They say 60 watts, but sound more like 30. They have a 12" Eminence 8ohm, Accutronics spring reverb. I have 3 of them, my favorite/original/go-to solo tone 1 in Pignose-brown naugahyde, and 2 in black tolex. These sound really great when ya do what I do with them (see my Harmony Central reviews for 60-R; I can explain later why there's 2 reviews for the same amp). This is the only Pignose product that I would say could be used for heavy rock-metal (with 'secrets').
    I also have a customised Crossmix 150-R (2 channels, 75 watts each) covered in Purple nauga, w/purple chickenhead knobs, a Kendrick Trainwreck blackframe 12" speaker. Has 2channels: clean has preamp vol., treble, bass, master, reverb; dirty has push-pull pre. vol., treble, push-pull mid, bass, master, reverb Has footswitch, w/seperate reverb controls and fx loop for each channel. Clean is clean, and dirty is like ZZ Top-bluesy. I have not yet tried the 'secrets' on this amp's dirty channel,... yet.
    The 60-R and the Crossmix 150-R were designed by Paul Rivera Sr. back in '79. Lee Jackson also worked for Pignose during these times. Not sure who manufactured them. These are ALL made in the USA. The 60-R's might be loud enough to play with a quiet drummer. The 150-R IS loud enough to play with any drummer.
    Got a Pignose Detonator pedal. Wow. What a pedal! I swear I didn't make OldSchoolWax get one!! (ha) It is a GREAT unit. It's super loud and sounds alot better than most pedals on the market. When I got it I was really prepared to be WAY let down. I expected that it would surely suck donkey nuts, and be on Ebay the next minute. NOPE! It's great! It does exactly what it says, and in no way sounds cheesy. I have 2 other distortion/o.d. pedals: Fulltone OCD version 1, Tech 21 XXL original version. The OCD is great and can hang w/the Detonator. The XXL sucks. I can't get a good sound out of it at all. Want it? At Guitar Center (banjo-mart) I personally put the Detonator up against all 3 of the new Way Huge pedals, Delta Lab, Boss distortions and o.d.'s (not the Heavy Metal pedal; different class)- and it ate them for breakfast. Burp.
    Just my personal opinion, and some dudes that were nearby agreed.
    Will have pics of amps soon.
    Any questions that I can't answer, can be answered by calling Howard Chatt at Pignose. He was there since the beginning and is a really cool dude. I've been bothering him with a stupid phone call, every year, since the mid 80's.
    Sorry everybody... no batteries, or tubes being used here!
