What small amps do you guys play through? I have a microcube, but I am looking to trade it in for a Pig Nose, or something small like that. My only apprehension with the Pignose is if I have to blast it loud to get distortion, or if my cbg's don't have a volume knob if it will sound that great. Last time I tried one was with a piezo, and it was the first one I put in so it sounded bad. I want something smaller and lighter than a microcube, but has some grit. I hardly ever play electric, so there is no hurry, but I may want to. I know some guys love the pig nose, so I would like to hear why? I had one a long time ago, but I just don't think I ever gave it a chance, and it was never clear to me the variety of options.

The Blackstar Fly 3 is what you need. It is light weight and has fantastic sound. Can be played clean or with distortion and also has delay. They are a steal at $59. Check out the reviews on Youtube.

I'll watch a demo and try one out. Thanks!
