I'm looking for a good 1970's one. Anyone here have one for sale?
Add me to the list of someone who'd buy one!
G60VR head in 2 amp rig with a Fuchs ODS50
Fuchs ODS 50, 1 Celestion G1265 and 1 Eminence RWB in a JDesign 2x12. A pignose G60VR with a similar Fuchs cab for added girth.
I actually have one in the mail as we speak...
Yes, I'll have to get out the baking soda and q-tips for the battery springs. It does work fine as is however.
Hi, does anybody know what brand of OEM speaker went in the originals? (up till the early mid-80s?) The newer ones don't sound the same. my 70's one the speaker is blown (and actually its backup, my #2 vintage 7-100 as well) and bought a current one, put the speaker in the old... didn't cut it.
Would be happy to hear from anyone with an old speaker or who has tried to locate OEMs!!
Please don't bring up new replacements (MOD5-30 etc.) they have different Load on circuit and change the Pig tone.
please list your cone #'s? mine is:7-201 91 7435 on the front.
I've seen some with printing on the back...but mine is painted black as most are i think.
Any info greatly appreciated.
Just found the numbers: 234824R on the inside back of the cone, any idea what this stands for?
I'm trying to pace myself and not post too often. My last post was seven years ago.
I have my Telecaster and Pignose at the junior/senior high school where I teach (in Tokyo), and sing songs for the students every chance I get.
I love the mobility. I even have a sort of gig bag hanging from my other shoulder so I can keep moving. Great fun!
The new ones have a plastic cone and the old ones are paper cones, so yeah, it'd be great to have paper cone replacement speakers.
Maybe we could pester Weber into making some?
Hmm I didn't realize that. My pignose must be older than I thought.
Weber would likely argue that it wouldn't be worth their monetary investment. Not enough people would buy them sadly.
Original 7-100 rockin' the Finger Lakes.
I have a HOG 20 with rechargeable lead acid batteries. It's a great, clean sounding (recording quality) amp. If I use a BOSS GE-7 EQUALIZER I can vary the tone in many pleasing ways. And a HARDWIRE RV-7 REVERB rounds out the signal nicely.
When I ordered a new set of batteries they inadvertently shipped a new smart charger instead, and they told me to keep it! (My batteries followed shortly after)
I sure love my 1970's Pignose. I'll post a video of it sometime soon
Would probably like to buy another one sometime. Love those little amps! I used to busk on the streets of Chicago in the 90's w/ a Pignose. Worked out great. Thinking about getting back into busking
Well, if I see someone down on State with a Pignose, I'll say hello!
Thanks! They won't allow amplified music on State Street, thinking more "off the square" during Farmer's Market Saturdays, or outside of Badgers games or in Chicago....
But anyways my Pignose is plenty loud enough and sounds great
Hi, talked with Howard at Pignose and he can replace the speaker, 29 bucks and 15 bucks shipping ugh!! I fixed the old one, had a tear with very thin tisue and diluted white glue, seesms to be fine again. Still would like to locate the original speaker type and go direct to manufacturere. Any one selling one or have additional intel.
Just a guess, but based upon the frame and paint, I bet Eminence was the original supplier of the paper cone speakers.
is Eminence somehow associated with Utah? Because some old timer said the pig speaker was a semi-generic used in various low-end home stereo boxes in the 1970's. And thought they were unbranded Utah. There's boxes of them sitting in some old warehouses just waiting to be used...
I own a Pignose Hog 20 amp that is powered by two 6V batteries.
I haven't been using the amp for a very long time, and stored it with disconnected batteries.
Now I have bought two new batteries and am ready to plug the charger, but... how do I connect the batteries?
Are they in series or parallel?The tension needed to run the amp is 12 V dc.
I can see a red and a black wire coming from the amp, plus a shorter brown connection wire.
How do I connect the batteries together?
Not an amp, but I own a Pignose Strat.
