    Few questions:
    What became of the old piggyjam site?
    Is the black/gold US made?
    When did they cease making these in the US?
    Thanks!

    How do you know what the year of a Vintage 70's Pignose 7-100 is by the serial number?

    I'm scrolling through the new posts, and I started to scroll past this one, and then it hit me: I'm a Pignose owner. Funny, but I haven't thought of that little amp in years. I bought it in the early '80's, but hadn't used it for probably 25 years. It must be in a box in the garage, as I haven't even seen it in recent memory.

    Forgot about these little piggies yrs ago. In the last couple years I been looking out for an old made in the USA red/white/blue label Pignose 7-100. Finally found one last week for under $100 in nice condition, but I'm not sure how to tell what year it is from the serial number. Any suggestions?

    I can hardly wait until I have a sofa again (damn, you cat pee!), so I can sit on it and noodle through my 7-100.

    G60VR here, bought it off my son's friend about 15 years ago, it's had a power transformer (Fender ) replacement, we put in filter caps , standby switch , tubes, still kinda noisy ..found a matching 12" cab a few years ago to use it as a mini stack. Still needs a better speaker in the combo itself. Got a lotta crunch on the 60 W switch. Be really great amps if they didn't have so many cheap parts .My tech pal says the chassis is very similar to an old Bassman , designed years ago by Dennis Kager (Ampeg), the N.J. amp guru ...

    I picked one up on ebay probably 10 years ago, but never REALLY played it in a group setting (i.e. loud) until a jam session the other night, where I didn't feel like lugging a big amp. No pedals either. WOW! THAT was a nice sound, especially with the guitar volume knob dialed back. Now, there was no drummer--just a few guitars--so it didn't need to be THAT loud.

    One thing I was wondering: has anyone played around with the battery voltage level? Is there a sweet spot with alkalines? They tend to drop in voltage pretty linearly, so I would think that the right combination of volume and voltage would produce the BEST sound...perhaps regulate the power rail to provide just the right amount of headroom? Another knob to dial it in? Hmmmm...
