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…Continue
"The issue is not that I'm unhappy with the microcube. I have been very happy with it. I just don't ever get to play plugged in much because I do all my practicing at night, and more or less am an acoustic player. I like the way these…"
"The Pig nose is a good little rig thats true , i have a old Messa boggie 50 that ive had for years my stage rig which my Son jasper has in his room with his guitars and the old effects board but i found it to much to lug around so i got a Delta Twin…"
"I have a Pignose and a Roland Cube 10. I love them both. The Pignose is basic, but it does sound good as you turn it up. One big drawback for me is the lack of an Auxiliary input like the Roland has. That's a great feature playing jam tracks. I…"
"If you're not happy with a Roland MicroCube, you won't be happy with anything. You can't get much smaller or lighter and still get a decent sound. I like the Pignose (I sell them in my online store), but it is old school electronics…"

"My advice is build up some inventory, and make them so it is affordable for you, and priced so people will drop the cash without thinking about it. Then just find you nitch. Try a lot of different things until something works for you. For all of us…"
"You both are right. The microcube sounds great, and I would regret probably trading it off right away. The main reason I was feeling ansty is if you knew me in 2016 when I was on here, you know I have been a wandering gypsy around the country for a…"
"Good call. I got a deal on the microcube anyway in a small shop Baker City, Oregon. Got 50 knocked off the cube brand new, and a free peavy composer that needed a bridge and some hardware. That little music store in that little town in the desert…"
"Gypsy, I agree with the pick in regard to battery-operated small amps. All good choices. With that said, consider building a cigar box amp. I've built kits from CB Gitty and Tone Monster, both are fine for cigar box gits. The building is easy,…"
