I've got a 7-100.
g 40 v...
Got a used g 40 v last xmas from the kids-did some tweaking, sounded awesome ( went to 12 au7 preamp tube, and two ecc 83's(mullards) old set of rca black plate 6l6's ( replaced the 5881 Ruby tubes the previous owner installed) , then blew the output x former ( new one from a fender blues deluxe on the way)- BTW, just spoke to the Pignose distributor in Vegas- pignose discontinued tube amp production last year ( he mentioned that it was due to " the economy") ... Gonna Tweed my little piggy when I get her up and running again - gonna build a cabinet similar to the Gibson Les Paul GA 40 that I had in high school ( and sold for a "louder amp" ...) will put a 15" jensen in her , and mount the chassis vertical, like the old fender tweeds were should be one screamin wild boar !!!
I have a g40v that I made a head out of. I stuffed the innards into one of those old school/church speaker boxes. One of my favorite amps. Sorry to hear that they stopped production. Oh well. Glad I got mine!
My first amp, back in 1981 was a Pignose. A 40-60, maybe? I blew it up about 25 years ago!
Hot-Rodded G40V owner here!
I had the circuit modified (its now a 6L6 Power tube Plexi), and stuffed the chassis and a Celestion Vintage 30 into roomier digs:
Here's the changes made too it:
Lat year at NAMM, the guy that owns Pignose was there, and the G40V was prominent and up front. I spoke with him, and expressed my joy with the little amp, and he said it was one of his best sellers.
He never mentioned he was ending production on it.
i just ordered a 7100 today
im soo jazzed!
is it as legit as everyone says??
i just got mine today...quick question to all you owners out there...
is there cut marks on the top/bottom of your pignose where they cut the vinyl in order to wrap it i would imagine??
thanks in advance...
Old 7-100 here. Use it in the studio all the time. Put a TLM49 in front of the pig and
crank it up, stack the track, and it sounds huge, clean or dirty.
A song I wrote specifically for my Pignose ... SNOUT.
Peavey Reactor (Joe Barden neck, SD Lil 59 bridge) plays the rhythm and lead, some kind of bass, and a pandeiro for "drum kit". Reverb comes from the Zoom H4. All played by me. Mea culpa.
stackabones...it sounds really good in fact!!
is that all from the pignose??
i just opened the box but im still at work so no time to play it yet...but im pumped...
also i didnt notice anywhere for the headphones...can i plug into the output?
I just joined this forum, and I too am a proud owner of a pignose. Ive had my 7-100 for about 8 years now. Unfortunately when I moved into my new apartment it got damaged in the move. I have been trying to fix it for weeks now but I can't figure out the wiring even with several schematics I found online. If anyone here would be nice enough to take a picture of their 7-100's PCB that would be great. I believe my pignose is a Chinese model because it has a white label inside.
pignose g 40 v- new output tranny !!!!
Just got her back up and running thursday- got a Hot Rod Deluxe output tranny from Angela Instruments.com , to replace the blown stock piggy- had to drill 2 chassis holes, compared schematics from the Hot Rod Deluxe ,and the Piggy, soldered and shrink tubed her up MONSTER TONE !!! - BTW, the Hot Rod Deluxe tranny JUST fits in ( clears the speaker frame by less than 1/2" ...) much bigger, AMERICAN Iron !!! Now, It's time to do some measuring, head to Keim Lumber , In Charm, Oh. and pick out some awesome hardwood to build a combo cab. out of- leaning toward some wormy, curly maple 4/4 stock they have in the exotic wood room , and a 15" jensen ... Gotta Quit Drooling, I'm getting my paperwork wet here at work !!!
Didn't even know they call them 7-100's but I've had one for about 5 years and love it. I got a kick out of my son taking his shoe boxed sized battery powered amp with him to his "blues guitar" class. All of the kids who had much larger amps scoffed and joked about it until he opened up on it when he had it cranked. The fellow teaching the class was the only one who knew anything about them. Was fun to watch their mouths drop in unison when he got it rolling. Best little practice amp in the world.
A Pignose 7-100 amp has been my very first amp...I still got it and I still use it occasionally.
Miss Piggy and my Tele.
Ha, never noticed these clubs before... I'll join.
The deal over my '74 Tele Deluxe was set when the previous owner gave me his 7-100 for good measure
7-100 here in the UK..........
Count me in for a 7-100. I'm absolutely in love with this thing
Yeah, all Pignose. The reverb was in the Zoom H4 that I recorded it with, but all everything is pure pork.
