I have always wanted to own a Pignose and now I have one! Gotta say, for the money, you can't beat it! Nice and solid feeling, pretty thick sound for a rechargeable. I use it as a practice amp on the patio. I have a Digitech RP150 and a Silvertone Les Paul knockoff that adds a different dimension to the sound. Gives it that garage rock feel. I'll mic it and BOOM!! Can't go wrong for the money, just play with it and you'll see. A must have for the price!

I had one of the original pignoses until it crapped out after about 10 years. A cool little amp for the time and very usable for practice.I had higher expectations for the Hog 20, which weren't realized. Other companies are offering more bang for the buck now.The Hog 20 is an adequate practice amp, but I have found that above 6, the volume level produces unpleasant distortion and electronic hum. Not to mention the metal screen over the speaker vibrates annoyingly. The usable distortion is somewhat thin.Some may find this amp perfectly adequate. In fact I've had some fun with it using tele, strat and LP.But there is so much out there in terms of Asian-built low price amps with numerous features, I would try several before buying.

      Comments about Pignose Hog 20 Amp:

      a Great little amp, once I dialed in my sound with it I have no complaints. I use a Holy Grail Nano Reverb with it and it more than delivers the big sound that I am looking for, but it sounds awesome without the reverb too! Batteries last a good long time, I used for 5 hours on the battery one day when the power was out and the sound stayed consistent the whole time.

        Comments about Hog 20 Amp:

        This has great tone and volume for such a little battery powered box! I got this amp for the occasional outdoor small gathering, as well as indoor (apartment) practice. It sounds good with both electric or acoustic/electric guitar. I have only used it a few times so I haven't yet tested the limits of the battery's power, but so far it has been perfectly adequate for every use.

        Just love it. Wonderful sound and response out of a very small package. Will carry a bass in a practice session. 10 Stars!

          puts out a lot of sound for its size. Quite solid and looks like it will hold up to a lot of use. Running on batteries and its compact size makes it very portable. I chose this model for it tunability. Very easy to change the sound coming out. I Think it can get really loud. I use it in a small auditorium and only have it on 1 or 2 for use with a harmonica.

              Comments about Pignose Hog 20 Amp:

              I've read the glowing reviews and I just don't see it. First off, is it portable? The size says yes, the weight says no. I can only imagine it's called the "Hog" because ut weighs so much. It's over 12 pounds! You know those UPS backup power supplies used for computers? This thing has two of those batteries, it's heavy. Instead if engineering it to be user friendly they slapped stickers on the batteries telling you all the stuff you have to do to keep them from "dying young". Great message to read on your amp! Oh, and if you want to bring the charger along, that's 2 more pounds and it's the size of a brick.

              The sound? I guess the clean sound is usable. Nothing special though. The overdrive "Squeal" is useless. It really makes to difference to the tone until you crank it. Then it starts to sound like playing a fuzz box underwater. I don't know any songs where that comes in handy. It sound like a blown speaker (btw, my speaker is fine, I checked).

              So overall, I hate this thing. It's heavy, ugly and has no useable sounds. I can't imagine anyone giving it a five star review. They can't be talking about this amp.
