Thanks, John. Sounds like a bargain to me. I'll probably try and get one from you if I can get enough saved before you sell out (which I'm betting will be quickly). All the best and thanks again.

That company are NOT the official UK distributor as far as I know. I reckon that's why their prices are so high (about 20% more than I'll be punting them out at). Prices for the Hog 20 should be around £160 depending on what Her Majesties Revenue and Customs slap on me for importing them.

Thanks Ron. I'll take a look at those links. Like I say, not heard of the Hog 20 before so it's peaked my interest now. Thanks again.

Danibear,
The HOG 20 is a battery amp that can be recharged from mains power with a wall wart. Here's a link to the manufacturer's page: https://pignose.myshopify.com

And here's a link to their UK distributor (not to take away from CBJ): http://www.pignose-uk.co.uk/page_products.htm

Hi John. That's exciting news. I've always fancied getting my paws on a Pignose but I've never heard of the Hog 20. There's little info on pricing and whether the Hog 20 is a battery amp on your linked page though. I imagine if it was your first busking amp then it takes batteries? How much would one of those be through your website?

Comment by ChickenboneJohn on July 5, 2017 at 10:29am

Sneeky Peek announcement. The Return of The Legendary Pignose!!! In around 3 weeks we will be taking delivery of our first shipment of these classic battery powered amps. Price will be around £100 (to be finalised after we've heard from Her Majesty's Customs and Excise). If you are interested, just message me or drop me an email via the website. These haven't been available for ages, so we are expecting demand to be high, especially for the limited edition tweed and snakeskin versions. These are very cool old school little amps, and an ideal companion to your cigar box guitar.

We also will have very limited numbers of the larger "Hog 20" amp - this was my first busking amp....I used one just the other day at a festival for demoing my CBGs.

Fantastic blog write up John. Sounds like a lot of work but hopefully the takings made it all worthwhile.  Nice that your daughter and Hollowbelly supported you for the venture. Impressive stuff. Oh and nice addition of the little video of Hollowbelly on the blog too. Great touch. Thanks for sharing.
