I,m in 7-100 early 70's
Mine is #6974. Bought it over 41 years ago. Still works - with batteries only though. I keep it for sentimental reasons only, not interested in playing it.
I had one of these when I was way young!
that's neat! What's really cool is the in-case amp is a tube amp!
I'd never heard about these Daneco's. So it is especially cool to learn something new.
Long, long ago in a land far away!
Glad you liked it.
I don't know if he's actually playing it, but if you look at 1:19 and 1:36 in the video, you can see James Hetfield with a Pignose in the studio

Model 7-300 Hog 30
Got me the little piggy around '81 or so. Still gets lots of use. Great when playing with acoustic players.
The battery terminals corroded though, so it's all adapter all the time.
Does Pignose g60vr has loop in series or parallel?
I love my Pignose 7-100. Just started playing it again this week. When I first got it my only electric was a Hagstrom Viking and the Pignose hates that guitar. But it loves my Baja Tele. I'm really digging the simplicity, no pedals and great sounds. Wheee! Plus I don't feel I'm risking much when I wail away in the throws of a heavy thunderstorm.
I got a little Pignose amp a few weeks ago in a trade. Cool unique sound
I've been doing online guitar lessons with Aram Bajakian ( Outside Guitar ) and my 7-100 sits on my desk as my practice and play-along with videos amp:

Just got mine!
7-100 piggy from the 70's, 11,xxx, I'll post my proud pics later!
Pignose G40V modified
Turned mine into a head and did a couple mods.
1. Adjustable bias with a wide enough swing to run 6L6's or 6v6's.
2. Bias taps on the back of the chassis
3. plate voltage tap on the back of the chassis.
4. Changed the feedback resistor to 33k
Did other mods. If anyone's interested I can let you know what they are...
Battery drains even with adapter plugged in???
Greetings, fellow pig lovers:
I got a new 7-100 recently and loved it so much I had to track down an original. Luckily I found one in good shape and bit. Emailed Howard with the SN and he responded it's a '74, but I found '78 printed on it, so I'm gonna go with '78.
The vintage USA piggy cleans up sooo much better than the new one. None of the hissy fizz that seems to hide under all the clean tones of the new one. Just clear, crisp, chime. And when I open up the Tele's volume control, the drive is fatter, smoother, and 'browner' on the USA one, fo' sho'.
I do love the new one because it still sounds passable for what it is, but the 'fizzy' factor is annoying, so I have ordered another new one to demo and see if perhaps it lacks the fizz, in which case I'll return one and keep the fizz-free piggy.
One question though, I sprung for the adapter to go with my new 7-100, and just assumed that the batteries would be disconnected when the adapter is plugged in. But then I took it outside after a few days of use plugged in, and NO BATTERY LIFE!!!
Does this mean that if I want to use the adapter for an extended period of time I have to go to the problem of prying out those batteries??
Does it not disconnect the batteries from the circuit when plugged in?
Does that mean that if batteries are in and piggy is plugged into the wall, the power will come from the batt's until they're drained?
Hi, my first time in this club. I have Pignose 7-100 Serial No. 101. Guerilla industries have informed me that it is probably the first Pignose to ever go on sale, the first 100 being given to Guitar celebrities. Any advice on how I can get it valued ??????
Contact reverb.com. Maybe they'll run an article on it. You can ask whatever you want. They'll happily promote it. Likely id say it belongs in the Rock and roll hall of fame.
I'd say it's worth a few hundred as a collector's item.
Difference between Pignose 7-100 & 7-100(R)?
I'm new to harmonica and new to amps. It was suggested I buy a little Pignose 7-100 and a Shaker Dynamic mic to enjoy my new learned skills on. I thought I was saving money buying what was described on EBay as a Pignose 7-100 in excellent condition. Well...so much for believing. It plays with a new set of batteries after you sit and wait for about 20 seconds. It sounds marginal at best. My son plugged his electric guitar into it and couldn't even get it working at first. I am in touch with Howard at Pignose and hope he will be able to help me. When my son plugged a 9v charger into the Pignose you could hear it power on but no guitar sound cam through it. I'm in the process of deciding whether it's a simple inexpensive fix (I'm not an electrical engineer) or whether I send it back and go buy a new one somewhere probably made in China? Any thoughts? Thanks.
